Creating the Connector Facade

Applications access the connector API through a ConnectorFacade class, and interact with the connector through a ConnectorFacade instance.

The following steps describe how to create a ConnectorFacade in your application.

  1. Create a ConnectorInfoManager and acquire the ConnectorInfo object for your connector, as described in the previous section.

  2. From the ConnectorInfo object, create the default APIConfiguration.

    APIConfiguration apiConfig = info.createDefaultAPIConfiguration();
  3. Use the default APIConfiguration to set the ObjectPoolConfiguration, ResultsHandlerConfiguration, ConfigurationProperties, and TimeoutConfiguration.

    ConfigurationProperties properties = apiConfig.getConfigurationProperties();
  4. Set all of the ConfigurationProperties that you need for the connector, using setPropertyValue().

    properties.setPropertyValue("host", SAMPLE_HOST);
    properties.setPropertyValue("adminName", SAMPLE_ADMIN);
    properties.setPropertyValue("adminPassword", SAMPLE_PASSWORD);
    properties.setPropertyValue("useSSL", false);  
  5. Use the newInstance() method of the ConnectorFacadeFactory to create a new instance of the connector.

    ConnectorFacade conn = ConnectorFacadeFactory.getInstance()
  6. Validate that you have set up the connector configuration correctly.

  7. Use the new connector with the supported operations (described in the following sections).
