I saw the following code somewhere:
if (cachedNtlm)
{
Connector conn = connectorService.getConnector(this.endpoint, session);
ConnectorContext ctx = new ConnectorContext(null, getConnectionHeaders(conn));
remoteRes = conn.call("/touch", ctx, req, null);
}
else
{
Connector conn = connectorService.getConnector(this.endpoint, AuthenticationUtil.getUserId(req),
session);
ConnectorContext ctx = new ConnectorContext();
remoteRes = conn.call("/touch", ctx);
}

Can someone tell me what is this used for ? Are connector a web service ?
Where can I find more detailed information on this ?

How can Alfresco use connector to authenticate user ????

Thanks !!!
