In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 services and Application Integration Framework (AIF), integration ports use adapters. These adapters enable Microsoft Dynamics AX to communicate by using various transport protocols. Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 provides the following four adapters that represent predefined bindings:
HTTP adapter – This adapter provides for synchronous message exchanges by using an HTTP or HTTPs transport.
NetTCP adapter – This adapter provides for synchronous exchanges by using WS-* standards support over the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) transport. This adapter corresponds to the WCF-NetTcp binding in Windows Communication Foundation (WCF).
MSMQ adapter – This adapter provides support for queuing by using Message Queuing as a transport. Message Queuing is also known as MSMQ. Message Queuing is a type of asynchronous communication. This adapter corresponds to the WCF-NetMsmq binding in WCF.
File system adapter – This adapter provides support for the asynchronous exchange of documents through file system directories.
