When we announced the December 2013 release, an exciting new feature also saw daylight: The Batch Module. If you haven’t read the post describing the feature’s highlights, you should, but today I’d like to focus on how the <batch:commit>block interacts with Anypoint™ Connectors and more specifically, how you can leverage your own connectors to take advantage of the feature.
It sounds like the title for a fantasy movie, but Google, OAuth and the “confused deputy” is a very common issue. Wikipedia defines a confused deputy as “a computer program that is innocently fooled by some other party into misusing its authority. It is a specific type of privilege escalation” (complete article here).
The Wikipedia article shares an example of a compiler exposed as a paid service.
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.
Mark Zuckerberg once said: “How can you connect the world if you leave out China”. Well, I now at this moment say: “How can you connect the cloud if you leave out Google.” I know I don’t have his net worth, but I have a point nevertheless. The reality is that Google has done a great job building a Gazillion of different and very cool APIs, and you’d be right to feel that it’s hard to keep their pace.
Most people who ever worked in real-world data integration projects agree that at some point custom code becomes necessary. Pre-fabricated connectors, filter and pipeline logic can only go so far. And to top it off, using those pre-fabricated integration logic components often becomes cumbersome for anything but the most trivial data integration and processing tasks.
With RESTx – a platform for the rapid creation of RESTful web services – we recognize that custom code will always remain part of serious data integration tasks.
