Connectors consumed by the OMRS

A Connector is a Java class that supports the standard Open Connector Framework (OCF) APIs. The Open Metadata Repository Services (OMRS) defines the following connectors to enable support for specific operating platform services to be plugged into the OMRS.

The OMRS defines the interfaces for these connectors and selected implementations are located in the adapters package.

All of these connectors support the Open Connector Framework (OCF) which means the OMRS uses the OCF Connector Broker to create the instances of the connectors it needs. The type of connector needed is defined in a connection object.

The connection objects for OMRS’s connectors are defined in the OMAG Server configuration document that is passed to the server when the open metadata services are activated.

This means that new implementations can be specified without needing to change the OMRS code.
