The problem with traditional connectors are that they are tightly coupled - any change in the data format or interface requirements for either end of any interaction would require an update of the connector, at the risk of a failed interaction.
- Jason Bloomberg, President, Intellyx
Connectors have been a traditional enterprise application integration (EAI) tool since the dawn of EAI back in the 1990s. The rise of SOA and Web Services was in part intended to resolve the limitations of such traditional connectors, but often fell short. REST moves the ball forward somewhat, but relies on standard media types that don't provide sufficient detail about data formats. JSON helps to fill this void, and adds flexibility to be sure, but throws a wrench into connectors or Web Services or any other traditional integration tool that expects data to conform to a particular schema.
