Hi Eben,

Dropbox exposes an API which you can call via standard http POST calls You can use the REST web service call functionality from Mendix

Another approach would be to add the dropbox Java SDK to you rMendix project and expose the functionality you need as java actions.

I believe the first approach is fast and dirty and you should only use it if you only have a few API calls. If you need a more extensive integration then I would recommend (and so does Dropbox) to use the java library, because it will save you a lot of trouble down the road. 

Dropbox quote: We recommend that you use one of our officially supported SDKs e.g. Java instead of raw HTTP calls.

Hope this helps,
