Check how Oracle Integration Cloud functions:
Before OIC, there was an inherent need of a platform to build connections. Oracle identified the gap in the industry and was quick to come up with Oracle Integration Cloud which has transformed the face of the industry. Through Oracle Integration Cloud, businesses can leverage adapters for data exchange. These two points are referred as end points in OIC jargon.
In other words, OIC is a connecting bridge between two end points (the source and the destination). So, with the help of OIC, data can be mapped and connected to different end points. Now, how does this happen? OIC reads, maps and transfers data from one object to another with the help of Connection Adapters (data exchange between the source and the destination).
