I want to know if its possible to call Adapter Service from external (public/ internal) REST client from process running outside of webMethods runtime.
With extensive research in documentation, no where it is clearly mentioned that Adapter service must have additional wm Java Service created just to call it.
Follwing image shows it can be called directly without having REST endpoint configured on webMethods IS.
In above image, you can see it is mentioned as
“An Integration Server client, typically using a flow or Java service, invokes
a JDBC Adapter service on the webMethods Integration Server to perform
an operation on a database.”
Why it is mentioned as Typically? What are other options here?
Following Image shows need to Flow/Java to call adapter service
If not rest call, what are the other options if we need to call it from some process. Ex. Client program calling Adapter service directly.
Primary objective is to create Adapter Service, Call from external client, and do not need to create intermediate REST V2 service for access.
