Apex Connector is not Generally Available right now.

In Winter' 15 (192) release,a pilot program was created to provide a APEX software development framework allowing you to develop your own external data connector in APEX, I understand it will be generally available in the Summer '15 release(#safeharbor)

Lightning Connect is about the ODate protocol, however, I do believe you can use the Apex Connector for external source integration with Salesforce as explained in the slides on the link :
