Can we integrate Data Connect API with DSx?

So ETL and data cleansing can be easier

    I would like Data Connect to provide an option where the target isn't a physical data store but is instead a view that we can access from DSX.

    E.g.

    val df = sqlContext.read.format("com.ibm.dataconnect")
    .option("org", "my_org")
    .option("space", "my_space")
    .option("servicename", "my_dataconnect_servicename")
    .load("dataconnect_view")

    or

    val vcapservices = "{ ... }"

    val df = sqlContext.read.format("com.ibm.dataconnect")
    .option("vcapservices", vcap_services)
    .load("dataconnect_view")
