Reg Adapter Registrationneed help


Do I need to register my adapter with webMethods if I have to develop a custom adapter using ADK with webMethods 6 ?? I am not sure, but I heard this from someone saying I will have to get a unique ID from webMethods to register my adapter.

Is that correct ? Pls help…

Thanks a ton in advance.

As I understand webMethods wants to keep track of people using the ADK and thus require user registration for access to the full webM6 ADK (API, Docs and Examples).
Over-and-above this, I do not know of any need to “register” your adapter. I’ve recently developed a custom ADK6 adapter for a client and have been able to run it successfully without any problems.

  1. What are the advantages of registering custom build adapter?
  2. What is the use of Unique Id in Custom Build Adapter?
