You can use App Connect Designer to connect apps by configuration and data mapping without a need for coding, and can achieve a return on your investment in minutes/hours, not days/months.

Generally, connecting apps in App Connect Designer uses the same straightforward exercise of creating an event-driven flow or creating flows for an API, as described in the general guide How to connect apps – general use of App Connect Designer.

Some apps have special prerequisites, considerations, or example use cases; for these apps we are developing app-specific “How-to” guides.

We’ll be using this page to collect a growing set of “How-to” guides.

For a list of all the applications available in IBM App Connect Designer, see the http://ibm.biz/acapplib page.

If you can’t find what you want, or have comments about the “how-to” information, please either add comments to the bottom of this page or .

You might also like to check the forum, where you can also ask questions for support or general topics.

    How do we connect to Oracle using App Connect?

    • Ian_Larner June 10, 2019

      Hi Mukesh
      If you are looking to connect to Oracle database using IBM App Connect on IBM Cloud, it is a straightforward exercise of creating an event-driven flow or creating a flow for an API, as described in the general guide How to connect apps – general use of App Connect Designer. We did not create a “how to” guide for Oracle, as there did not seem anything special that needed describing… and to see if clients wanted more about Oracle.

      To connect to Oracle database, you’ll need the details to connect to your Oracle instance, and if the Oracle database server is in a private network you’ll need to set up a gateway that App Connect will use to securely access the Oracle database server. There’s a tutorial about this: Creating a contact record in Oracle table when a new lead is created in Salesforce.

      If you are looking to use IBM App Connect Enterprise with Oracle, you also have other options including using ODBC connections to Oracle, SSL authentication or Advanced Security (OAS), globally coordinating message flow transactions with updates in Oracle databases, and using JMS nodes to communicate with Oracle AQ.

      If you can provide more information about your interest, we can look at creating a “how to” page and related templates or tutorials to help.

      Regards,
      Ian

  2. Can we use IBM App Connect with ILC and trigger the flow of that data to SAP HRMS system ?

    How to use IBM App Connect with SQL Server?

    • Giridhar
      Thank you for the question. This is something we’re already looking into for future functionality.
      I recommend keeping an eye on the What’s New? page to keep track of the new functionality being released.
      Regards, Ian
