As organizations embrace APIs for exchanging information with internal or external customers and partners, it’s critical not to sacrifice visibility or governance.  That’s where API management comes in. API management policies can be layered on top of the implementation of the APIs to provide the governance, security and visibility required.  

Out-of-the-box the Anypoint platform provides a full number of policies. Policies are grouped into categories of:

HowTo – Exceptions and Error Handling in Mule

Welcome to this series of “HowTos” covering exceptions in MuleSoft Anypoint Platform. We will be covering many topics specifically with exceptions and exception/error handling in Mule integration flows.

The exception handling is demonstrated using a simple use-case. The example Mule project is available in exchange here.

Integration projects are complex, and exceptions are bound to happen. It is important that we have the ability to catch, categorize and handle exceptions so that we do not leave the system/application/data in an inconsistent state.

This post is by one of our MuleSoft champions, Antonio Abad.

Let’s start with a simple definition of both concepts:

“An ESB is basically the integration of the new and the old, providing a central place for the services, applications, and IT resources in general that you want to connect.”


“A microservice architecture (vs. the legacy monolithic architecture) is an approach to developing a software application as a series of small services, each running autonomously and communicating with one another, for example through HTTP requests to their APIs.”

AQuA API with Zuora Connector

Zuora has been offering three different types of API: REST API, SOAP API and AQuA API. It is believed that majority of Zuora customers use the SOAP API to integrate with Zuora because of the breadth of its API. (MuleSoft is using the SOAP API internally!) While MuleSoft offered the Zuora Connector based on SOAP API, we started to hear from customers that some tasks could be done easily with AQuA API and Zuora is starting to recommend that customers use the AQuA API instead. To support this trend, we are excited to announce the release of Zuora Connector v3.1.0.
