CData Arc core connectors encompass a broad range of functionality:
- Connect to remote servers using common network protocols like FTP, SFTP, and SMTP
- Convert flat file formats like CSV (Comma-Delimited Values), TSV (Tab-Delimited Values), and PSV (Pipe-Delimited Values) into XML
- Transform XML structures with the XML Map Connector’s visual designer
- Schedule automatic file processing
- Expose database resources through a web API
- Execute arbitrary business logic through custom scripting
These Connectors serve as the foundation for data integration workflows. These features are augmented by the MFT Connectors for extensive secure file transfer and the EDI Connectors for automatic EDI document processing.
