QVX SDK and custom connectors
The QVX SDK includes an interface used for developing custom connectors in QlikView and Qlik Sense. A QVX formatted file contains metadata describing a table of data and the actual data.
A custom connector can work in either of two ways:
- It can reply to requests from QlikView or Qlik Sense to connect to a data source, retrieve data, and then stream QVX formatted data back.
- Alternatively, it can run as a standalone application and create a QVX file to be loaded into QlikView or Qlik Sense later on.
