Plug-ins facilitate the connection between a mobile application and a data source. The AppStudio platform includes a number of plug-ins for connecting to common data sources that are installed with the AppServer and AppStudio. Others must be downloaded and installed separately. You can also create your own custom plug-ins, in which case you must install the plug-in SDK.
For information on installing plug-ins, see Downloading and installing pre-built plug-ins.
For information on using the plug-in SDK, see About the Plug-in SDK.
