Integration Studio provides proficient software developers with an environment that empowers their ability to integrate with enterprise systems and to extend the existing functionality and data model of the OutSystems Platform. In OutSystems Platform, integration is accomplished through extensions.
Integration Studio environment provides several features that accelerate and automate the development of integration components and add-ons:
A fully integrated visual environment that allows you to rapidly and efficiently create extensions to integrate with core or legacy systems.
The 1-Click Publish feature, which enables the immediate remote deployment of extensions, including all of their dependencies, in any Platform Server. Once published, simply use the extension in your eSpace.
A highly specialized environment that extends the extension life cycle by automating integration with enterprise and external systems. Integration Studio leverages expert IT developers with a tool that eases the packaging of components built to integrate OutSystems applications with other systems.
Features related to extension administration are available through Service Center, a centralized management console that supports the administration, versions, operation, and deployment of extensions.
The target users of Integration Studio are developers with programming skills in native technologies supported by OutSystems Platform, such as Microsoft .NET, Java, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle Database.
The integration process revolves around the Extension life cycle. The process steps are executed in both OutSystems Platform and third party IDE component environments. The illustration depicts the most significant steps, showing them next to the component where they are executed:
