    Don't blame yourself, blame our documentation we're working on it.

    To answer your question: Adapters are meant to establish a connection between the messaging system and the outside world. Handlers (in M6) were anything that could do something with a message. In the latest HEAD the significance of Handlers has been severely reduced. Now you should view the system in three main roles: Message, Channel, Endpoint.

    Things are going to be easier.
