Class ConnectorTypeProperties

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.io.Serializable

    public class ConnectorTypeProperties
    extends AssetReferenceable
    The ConnectorType describe the implementation details of a particular type of OCF connector. The properties for a connector type are defined in model 0201. They include:
    • guid - Globally unique identifier for the connector type.
    • url - External link address for the connector type properties in the metadata repository. This URL can be stored as a property in another entity to create an explicit link to this connector type.
    • qualifiedName - The official (unique) name for the connector type. This is often defined by the IT systems management organization and should be used (when available) on audit logs and error messages.
    • displayName - A consumable name for the connector type. Often a shortened form of the qualifiedName for use on user interfaces and messages. The displayName should be only be used for audit logs and error messages if the qualifiedName is not set.
    • description - A full description of the connector type covering details of the assets it connects to along with usage and versioning information.
    • connectorProviderClassName - The connector provider is the factory for a particular type of connector. This property defines the class name for the connector provider that the Connector Broker should use to request new connector instances.
    • additionalProperties - Any additional properties that the connector provider needs to know in order to create connector instances.
    • recognizedAdditionalProperties - List of property names recognised by this connector.
    • recognizedConfigurationProperties - List of property names recognised by this connector.
    • recognizedSecuredProperties - List of property names recognised by this connector.
    The connectorTypeProperties class is simply used to cache the properties for an connector type. It is used by other classes to exchange this information between a metadata repository and a consumer.
