More of a note for myself - pointing to the connectivity agent patterns doc here
Questions often crop up regarding when the connectivity agent is used.
For example - I have SAP, Oracle DB, various SOAP / REST Services hosted on premise. The connectivity agent is also installed on the network. Will the connectivity agent be used for all inbound/outbound communication in respect of OIC?
Let's take SAP as an example - any REST or SOAP based calls to OIC will go directly, i.e. not thru the agent. Any calls via the SAP Java connector will go thru the connectivity agent.
