Other Application Connectors (a9 AppConnect)

If an application is not available, Alcove9 has two options for extending its capabilities for other applications and environments.

Option 1 – Text File Output

Alcove9 supports retrieving data from text files output by a source application. This method is ideal for legacy solutions (“green screen applications”), custom or proprietary applications and other applications with limited integration capabilities.

Option 2 – Third Party Integrations

Since there may be countless applications that can be integrated with Alcove9, we have established an API (application programming interface) foundation. Its purpose is to permit third parties to create their own integration. Alcove9 uses the Google Enterprise Connector Framework. It provides a standard and tested API for development of additional integrations that will work with Alcove9.

We embrace and support the creation of third party integrations in the spirit of open source. If our review board accepts a proposed integration, Alcove9 will support the integration by incorporating it in our best practices coding reviews, quality assurance testing, making it available and publicizing it to the Alcove9 user community available as a free download for subscription customers.
