Connector - part of the Open Connector Framework (OCF)

A connector is a java client object that provides applications with access to a data source or service (known as an asset) along with its related metadata.

An OCF connector provides four APIs.

OCF connectors are not limited to representing Assets as they are physically implemented. An OCF connector can represent a simplified logical (virtual) asset, such as a data set, that is designed for the needs of a specific application or tool. This type of connector delegates the requests it receives to one or more physical data resources. It is called a virtual connector.
