One of the strengths of Mendix is that it’s easy to connect your Mendix application with other systems. Our App Store is filled with all kinds of connectors and adapters. This how-to presents an overview of some of our connectors.
This how-to will teach you how to do the following:
- Explore the connectors and adapters
3 KPN LoRa Connector
This module is a connector for the LoRa devices and enables receiving incoming messages through the LoRa network (as it is provided by KPN in the Netherlands).
4 Amazon S3 Connector
Provides access to Amazon S3 inside of Mendix.
Build Mendix apps on top of your Salesforce.com environment in minutes. Get the rapid development and deployment power of Mendix seamlessly integrated on top of your entire existing Salesforce.com architecture. This adapter quickly and easily allows you to communicate with standard or custom objects in your company’s Salesforce.com instance.
7 Kerberos Single Sign On
This module enables Kerberos based Single Sign On in your application. Very useful in Windows Active Directory environments, since this protocol supports Integrated Windows Authentication. As a result, users logged on to the windows domain do not have to enter their credentials to log in to your application.
9 Excel Importer
10 Excel Exporter
Create templates that export data from your Mendix application to Excel or CSV format. This module creates an OQL query and directly prints the result to a filedocument in your desired format. Add styling to your Excel to create proper headers and styling formats to create a complete report.
11 Skype Call Widget
Skype URIs enable developers to create innovative mobile, web, and desktop apps that initiate Skype calls and chats, enabling your users to reach their friends, family and businesses in a convenient yet familiar way. For example, if your mobile app presents a contact list that contains Skype names or phone numbers, your app can use a Skype URI to launch the official Skype client and initiate a call to a selected contact.
13 Google Maps
14 IMAP/POP3 incoming email
15 MxSMTP Module
16 SFTP Connection
This component allows exchanging filedocuments with an SFTP server. It allows files to be send to a location, retrieved from a location and file listing of a location (for batch retrieval for instance). Mind that this component works with SFTP (SSH) and not with FTPS (SSL).
