Open Connectors

Open Connectors are connectors that support the Open Connector Framework (OCF) - see the open-connector-framework module.

This is the principle (preferred) mechanism for supporting pluggable components in the open metadata implementation. The OCF has additional uses in providing reusable/pluggable components for external technology - particularly related to data access.

The open connectors are grouped as follows:

In addition there is the connector-configuration-factory that creates Connection objects to configure these connectors.
