What kind of Adapters are there and how will it look like in the Designer? What are the pros and cons of each? And which Java classes correlate?
Together with the Adapter SDK the so called "TestAdapter" has been installed. This is a quite excellent starting point to understand all the different Adapters. If you want to see the screens yourself you should import the testadapter.atl file found in %DS_COMMON_DIR%\adapters\sdk\samples\TestAdapter\ into Designer.
The idea behind the TestAdapter is to deal with data files inside a directory, like the "Invoke Service" waits until a new file is copied into the directory and immediately transfers its contents to a RealTime Service.
