Plugin Integration Pattern
The Plug-in Integration Pattern is supported through the open metadata frameworks:
- Open Connector Framework (OCF) - connecting to data sources and related assets
- Open Discovery Framework (ODF) - discovering new metadata
- Governance Action Framework (GAF) - governing the operational environment
Each framework supports specific types of components that can be provided by third parties as well as Apache Atlas developers.
Figure 1 shows a plug-in component loaded into a server. The frameworks ensure the plug-in’s are called at the appropriate points in the server’s operation.
