Last year, I embarked on a new adventure with Mulesoft Engineering. It’s been over six months, and it’s been an incredible experience, and I’ve learned a lot.  I wanted to share my six biggest insights into what it’s like working here.

I would like to share my first experience with developing a connector. I decided to develop a Gitlab connector because it is a great system and I did not find a connector that would be developed for it.

First, I’m going to focus on describing the options you have when you decide to develop a connector. Next, I will describe, how to structure the connector and what are the specifics that you need to care of in comparison to the development of a standard Java program.

Studio’s Visual Debugger allows you to run your application in Debug mode, stopping execution to check the contents of a message at previously-specified building blocks.

To do this, you set a breakpoint at any building block in your flow that you wish to check or test. When you run your application in Debug mode, the application stops immediately after executing the building block with the breakpoint.
