You can exploit the extra capabilities of IBM Integration Bus (IIB) to interoperate with SaaS and cloud applications in a variety of ways:
- In IBM App Connect Designer, you can use an HTTP node to call any API in your API catalog, invoking IIB or other integration flows
- IIB can interact with IBM App Connect Professional through MQ or HTTP endpoints, passing information between IIB-connected back-end systems through IBM App Connect Professional and cloud applications like Salesforce.com’s cloud offerings.
- IIB flows can include the SalesforceRequest node to communicate synchronously with Salesforce.com by using Loopback connector technology from Strongloop. The Loopback connector invokes Salesforce by using the Force.com REST API to perform create, retrieve, update, and delete operations on predefined and custom Salesforce object types in a Salesforce system.
