Using "Read" on an XML file with the FileAdapter I get an error. When using the same XML file, and the same schema but with an FTPAdapter the application works fine.
What is the difference between the FileAdapter and FTPAdapter?
Both file and ftp adapter are used to read or write xml and non-xml formats.
However file adapter is used to read or write from the local file systems and ftp adapter is for remote files systems. FTP adapter uses File Transfer protocol.
Both adapters could be used with BPEL and Mediator.
