Connectors to digital resources and their open metadata
These connectors are for use by external applications and tools to connect with resources and services in the digital landscape. These connectors also supply the Asset metadata from Egeria that describes these resources.
Instances of these connectors are created through the Asset Consumer OMAS or Asset Owner OMAS interfaces. They use the Connection linked to the corresponding Asset in the open metadata ecosystem. Connection objects are associated with assets in the metadata catalog using the Asset Owner OMAS, Data Manager OMAS and Asset Manager OMAS.
The Avro file connector provides access to an Avro file that has been catalogued using open metadata.
The basic file connector provides support to read and write to a file using the Java File object.
The CSV file connector is able to retrieve data from a Comma Separated Values (CSV) file where the contents are stored in logical columns with a special character delimiter between the columns.
The data folder connector is for accessing data that is stored as a number of files within a folder (directory).
