Connect to Services

A Service is an application component that represents the application's interaction with the external service data source. A service definition comprises the metadata or the configurations required to exchange data with the external data source. For example, the configurations can be: service type, service ID, input parameters, output parameters, pre and post processors, target URL, authentication credentials (if required), and type (HTTP/HTTPS).

You can define the services for the following connectors:

  • XML over HTTP
  • Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)
  • Java - Custom connector for any other data source
  • Composite - A combination of all the above

The following services are supported in Volt MX Foundry:
