clip_image001In the lasts post about Oracle Mobile Cloud Platform I already told that you can connect to a external SOAP/REST web service, but you have to do it through a connector. We ahev also to keep in mind that with REST API or Android/iOS SDK you cannot call directly a connector, you have to call a custom API that will make the call to that connector so we will also have to make a implementation of out custom API using node.js.
You can download this example from my Github repository.
Check my previous post to see Oracle Mobile Cloud Service overview

In this post I am going to show with a quick example  how easy is to create an API that makes a call to an external REST web service.

The steps we are going to do are:

  1. Create a Mobile Backend (MBE)
  2. Create a Connector
  3. Create, design and implement an API.

Create a Mobile Backend (MBE)
A Mobile Backend is the gateway through we will make any API (custom or platform) call, so the first step is to create one.
In the Developer Portal we have to make click on Mobile Backend and in the next page we have to click on "New Mobile backend" and fill the required fields like name and description. Read the complete article here.
