DataSource is the Caplin Platform’s communications infrastructure that enables Platform components to communicate with each other.
Caplin Liberator, Caplin Transformer and Integration Adapters are all DataSource applications. A DataSource application communicates with any other DataSource application using standard message formats transmitted via TCP/IP sockets. You develop these applications using the DataSource APIs and libraries, including the Caplin Integration Suite.
A DataSource peer is a DataSource application that another DataSource application is configured to communicate with.
