The goal of WCF LOB Adapter SDK is to facilitate uniform development of reusable metadata-oriented WCF-based adapters that enable enterprise apps, databases and messaging platforms to integrate with each other. The same adapter binding developed using Adapter SDK can be reused in multiple .NET apps including Custom .NET Apps, BizTalk Server 2010, Office SharePoint Server and SQL Server Integration Services. In addition, Adapter SDK provides a common metadata object model to expose target system metadata, for adapter consumers to browse, search and retrieve WCF contracts from the adapter. The Adapter Consumer can use the adapter in an integration app similar to a typical WCF Service without having to learn a new programming model.
Some high-level features include:
- Connection pooling for connections to the target system
- Operation/Type metadata API and WCF contract generator
- In-memory metadata cache
- Adapter Code Generation Wizard
- Tools for adapter consumers to browse/search available operations and generate WCF contract(s) with selected operations
