6.5.1. What is ONEWEB Integration?
ONEWEB can easily be integrated with other external systems by means of a visual UI. Developers can integrate with SOAP and REST services, external databases or files without writing any code. It uses simple drag & drop functionality and UI screens for configuration. So from a user perspective, there is almost no difference between integrating to a REST API or a SOAP API.
ONEWEB Platform provides two tools for integration - Microflow Designer and Process Designer. So you need to decide which component best suits your application needs. Both tools are similar in their configuration, but differ on the intension of use.
- Process Designer is used to create Business Processes, which are long running processes to guide the workflow of the system.
- A Microflow is basically micro services which can be integrated with your UI component for asynchronous requests.
For more details on a comparison between both tools please refer section 6.5.3.
