What is Anypoint Connector?
Anypoint Connectors™ allow you to easily integrate Mule applications with third-party APIs using standard integration protocols. Use connectors within your application flows to send and receive data using a protocol or specific API. Connect message sources like endpoints and connectors in MuleSoft’s ecosystem, or use dynamic connectivity to API specifications.
WHISHWORKS Anypoint Connectors
WHISHWORKS builds reusable connectors using the Anypoint Connector DevKit. These connectors are pre-built generic connectors with a standardised protocol, transport layer, and database. They have the ability to connect quickly with thousands of REST and SOAP APIs. Anypoint Connectors are automatically bundled with Anypoint Studio, and there is a large library of additional connectors available for download from MuleSoft's Anypoint Exchange.
The Expedia Connector built by WHISHWORKS
Until now, search operations on Expedia have been done through their website only. The Anypoint Expedia Connector developed by WHISHWORKS can be connected to any endpoint from MuleSoft’s ecosystem, or by using dynamic connectivity to API specifications. This Expedia Connector allows users to search flights, cars, hotels, and packages. It uses APIs provided by Expedia using the RESTful interface. The Expedia Connector has been certified by MuleSoft and is published on the MuleSoft Exchange.
