Google Apps offers a cloud alternative to many of the office products. If you have a Gmail account then you have Google Apps including Spreadsheets, Docs, Presentations, Contacts, Calendars and Tasks. Of course Google Apps have APIS and of course we have the connectors to make it easy to connect Google Apps and your applications together. Lets get the connectors and then take a look at what you can do.
We’ve just rolled out a new platform service in our CloudHub R20 release for storing application data. With Mule’s Object Store capabilities, each CloudHub integration application is given it’s own storage, with zero configuration required. This makes it a extremely easy to implement two very important integration scenarios:
- Persisting OAuth tokens – all our OAuth enabled connectors can store tokens and restore them using ObjectStores
- Storing synchronization state – your application may need to keep track of the last record synchronized, so the next time it synchronizes it can resume where it left off
In addition, you can store any other data you want in it as well! Let’s take a more in depth look at these scenarios.
