Oracle released their cloud adapter for salesforce.com (SFDC) so I thought I would talk a little about why you might want it. I had previously integrated with SFDC using BPEL and the SFDC web interface, so in this post I will explore why the adapter might be a better approach.
So if I can interface to SFDC without the adapter why would I spend money on the adapter? There are a number of reasons and in this post I will just explain the following 3 benefits:
• Non-Ploymorphic Operations
• Operation Wizards
Lets take each one in turn.
