I would like to share my first experience with developing a connector. I decided to develop a Gitlab connector because it is a great system and I did not find a connector that would be developed for it.
First, I’m going to focus on describing the options you have when you decide to develop a connector. Next, I will describe, how to structure the connector and what are the specifics that you need to care of in comparison to the development of a standard Java program.
Let’s face it – integration isn’t easy in healthcare. EHRs are notoriously thorny to work with. HIPAA regulations require security and governance controls to be put in place when data moves between systems. And while many technologies underlying digital transformation have enabled hospitals to engage with their patients in innovative ways, these technologies have dramatically increased the number of endpoints to connect to.
In today’s world, APIs are used to abstract the complexity of systems of records, to provide secure connectivity to the end systems, and to accomplish business goals such as creating a unified view of a customer. But APIs alone cannot accomplish all integration use cases. For example, when you want to send data from won opportunities in Salesforce to SAP for invoice creation, on top of using APIs, you will also want to do data migration and/or data synchronization to accomplish this use case.
Marketo’s out-of-the-box, bi-directional integration with Salesforce.com keeps both Marketo and Salesforce in sync all day, every day – providing marketing and sales teams with the power to drive more revenue for your company. The Marketo Marketing & Lead Management solution is available for download from the Salesforce AppExchange.
But what if you need a custom solution? What if your organization uses of multiple Salesforce and Marketo instances? Learn how MuleSoft’s Anypoint Connector for Marketo allows developers to easily connect to Marketo’s API and design complex integrations within hours.
In our latest installment in the MuleSoft webinar series, we’ll introduce you to Anypoint Exchange! We’ll walk you through a demo showcasing both the public and private exchange. In the public exchange, you can access hundreds of templates, examples, and connectors made available to you by MuleSoft. In the private exchange, you can expose your own internal assets so that your organization can get the most benefit from each asset or project that you create. This is extremely helpful in onboarding new users to Anypoint Platform™ inside your organization, providing best practices for how to best integrate with or consume internal services, and promoting a culture of sharing and reusing the insights and learnings with team members.
Check out the webinar and learn:
- What is Anypoint Exchange, where to use it, and why it’s valuable
- The difference between public and private assets in Anypoint Exchange
- How to set up, control access to, and create and edit entries in your Anypoint Exchange
Anypoint Exchange is home to integration best practices, hosting the complete listing of MuleSoft’s connectors, templates and examples. With our latest release, we are thrilled to give customers the ability to curate their own exchange.
Preloaded with MuleSoft’s assets – connectors, templates and examples – to help you get started, customers can extend the exchange by adding customized information that will increase adoption of internal best practices and encourage collaboration across the organization. Any assets added by customers will be kept private to their individual organization.
Our January 2015 release of Anypoint Platform brings with it many new updates to power API-led connectivity. For organizations with investments in .NET, we are thrilled to add to the list the 2.0 release of our .NET Connector. The enhanced .NET Connector enables .NET developers to use familiar languages and tools when building integration applications with Anypoint Platform.
With this connector, you can use Visual Studio and any Common Language Runtime (CLR) language to write code for complex transformation and message enrichment to apply business rules or perform custom message routing logic within a Mule application. You can also reference or reuse existing code including third-party assemblies, and build new libraries of custom codes specifically for your application.
