The context: I have 2 databases. The source database where I retrieve data and the target database where I insert data.
What is the collective name I can use for source and target in this context? Target can also be called destination.

I asked myself the same question while developing an application dealing with data transfers from and to multiple sources and destinations. After reading this thread, the term 'repository' came to my mind. The spring-data project, providing an abstraction to different data sources and targets, is also using it. Another term I have seen is use is 'store', but I think 'repository' is less ambiguous.
