The Cloud Adapter SDK is a set of Java APIs, tools, and implementation classes that you use to develop adapters.
Adapters built with the Cloud Adapter SDK are also referred to as cloud adapter plugins. Benefits are:
Lets you build, test, and release custom adapters quickly.
Provides many needed adapter capabilities as default behaviors.
Parses standard service interfaces, builds a standard data model, and includes the model in the wizard to simplify configuration. Standard and custom business objects can be displayed differently in the wizard.
Lets you build once and deploy anywhere. Adapters built once using the Cloud Adapter SDK are pluggable across integration platforms such as Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle Service Bus, and Integration Cloud Service (ICS).
