Prefer Adapters that implement good error handling capabilities to minimize the errors inside your integration platform. Handling failures of integration business processes is key for a trustworthy platform and will push the accountability back to the owners of the data being processed as well as increase transparency.

    Which specific adapters do you consider robust, and which ones would you avoid?

      Hello,

      When I think about this scenario of robust error handling I always think about who is the owner of the data and who is responsible for problems with it. For example sending a file through BizTalk with bad data is generally a problem since the sending of the file happens at a different point in time of the processing of the file. Sending feedback to the file sender generally has to happen as a separate communication and most of the cases support escalation is going to be used. If instead you use another way of submitting the message such as for example the WCF-WsHttp Adapter you can verify the message for any problem before the sender is acknowledged of success and you can communicate a negative acknowledgment. This approach will avoid having to support bad data within the integration platform.
      Best regards,
