EAI — Concept of an adapter vs. a connector is only causing confusio

  • Key: EAI-3
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5538
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    I think the concept of an adapter vs. a connector is only causing confusion. Most people relate to the adapter as per the Gang of Four pattern, which is a transformation between interfaces. Yet the connector appears to have the ability to perform a transformation too. An adapter (or connector in OMG world) IS middleware, but you have middleware as this nebulous cloud in the architecture
