Ancient SOAP API Integration for sugar v7

I saw in one of most amazing Jeff Bickart  videos he was describing how he was making use of a custom connector to interface with hubspot from a sugar CRM module to sync data bi-directionaly.

Is this the best/fastest way to interface with an external webservice?

Was thinking could do the same in my situation where I would need to sync my custom module data with data from a really old and poorly documented SOAP webservice.

Not sure what's the best way to go about it.

1) Either create a custom sugar REST api endpoint that would communicate with the SOAP WS and have a button to call action either on the listview or record view of the custom module.


2)  Create a custom connector as described here… and implemented by Jeff Bickart in his HubSpot module that syncs data in real time.


Not sure how I would approach the second option as it's not thoroughly documented and could not find solid example or if it's even possible anymore in sugar7 ?


Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
