XPages out of the box ships with two Lotus Domino data sources. Other data could be read using Java libraries leaving them with all complexities around security, connections and state management. Using the XPages data source component model, this complexity can be reduced to simple attribute selections. This session will introduce the details of the data source component model and show how to use it to connect to RDBMS, SOAP, REST, PureXML, CouchDB, oData and others. See how leveraging the data source model enables automatic property support from Domino Designer and provides seamless integration with existing data bound XPages controls.
