DataConnect Studio API Invoker
The DataConnect Studio API invoker (formerly known as the REST Invoker) must be used to build process workflows to interact with web service applications. There are some purpose-built, map connectors available but the Studio API invoker provides a consistent and standardized way to connect to any REST or SOAP interface. It also provides more flexibility because you can exercise any method or operation of the API that a connector may not support. Also, the less tightly-coupled nature of the invoker allows easier maintenance as the API changes over time.
