Building on the success of CONNECT 2015 in San Francisco, we’re happy to announce the final release candidate for Mule 3.7 and Anypoint Studio June 2015. Planned GA is now less than a month away!
Highlights of this release:
As organizations struggle to deal with the proliferation of applications and APIs inside their organization, being able to integrate data at speed and scale plays a pivotal role. Specifically, we’re seeing with our customers a need to:
To stay relevant, today’s businesses have to adopt SaaS applications, cloud services, and API technologies and integrate them with their legacy systems. In SearchSOA this week, MuleSoft customer and Citrix integration developer Vinod Sangaraju discussed how Citrix has deployed CloudHub and is planning to use MuleSoft’s new solutions for Microsoft to fill BizTalk integration gaps.
Citrix Systems integration development manager Vinod Sangaraju found the MuleSoft Anypoint Platform when searching for an iPaaS solution to connect Citrix solutions with Salesforce, Marketo, Workday, and other cloud and on-premises applications. His search was driven by Microsoft BizTalk’s limited SaaS connectivity. His team had been filling that gap by using Microsoft BizTalk for on-premises integration scenarios and MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform, in particular CloudHub, for cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground integration. That wasn’t ideal, he said.
We’re excited to announce the long-awaited release of our Anypoint Studio Themes™!
Designed to provide a more pleasurable and productive integration development environment, you can customize your IDE experience with different creative, colorful themes. Choose from among several themes available for download within Anypoint Studio™, Mule’s Eclipse-based IDE.
It’s hard to believe that MuleSoft’s Fall 2013 Summit series is less than a month away. Summit is one of the most rewarding things I do all year. For me, it’s an opportunity to talk to many of our customers, partners and prospects about the integration challenges they face and the innovative ways they’re using our solutions to address them. Summit is a great opportunity to share best practices, lessons learned, and network with other like-minded members of the MuleSoft community.
On my previous 3-part blog, I showed how Mule ESB can be used to service-enable and orchestrate traditional on-premise technologies like an Oracle database and IBM Websphere MQ. Using Mule ESB, we created a service that accessed employee information from an Oracle database table and transmitted this to IBM WebSphere MQ. An observant customer I was showing this to noticed a security flaw with how sensitive employee information was being transmitted in plain text and also asked how the employee record can be sent to SalesForce.com. This blog will show how these can be easily addressed using MuleSoft’s AnyPoint Platform. We’ll make use of the PGP encryption features from AnyPoint Enterprise Security to encrypt the data before sending it to WebSphere MQ. Then, we’ll create another message flow to retrieve this message, decrypt it and send it to SalesForce.com using the AnyPoint Connector for SalesForce.com.
In Part 1 of this three part blog, we created an HTTP REST service that retrieves employee records from an Oracle HR database and returns it in JSON format. In Part 2, we took a look at how to easily turn this into a SOAP XML service without any coding by utilizing the SOAP component for top-down web service generation and the Data Mapper for transformations. Let’s now publish the Employee Record as a message to WebSphere MQ, which is a common approach for integrating with legacy on-premise systems. (Note: Setup steps are at the end of each part for the necessary software. Parts 1 and 2 of this blog needs to be completed.)
In Part 1 of this three part blog, we created a simple message flow in Mule Studio exposed as a basic HTTP service that retrieves employee data from an Oracle HR database and returns it in JSON format. JSON is a standard format that is very popular among web and mobile applications. Let’s now take a look at how to easily turn this into a SOAP web service, which is a standard in use in a lot of internal SOA and on-premise integration projects. We will do this without any coding. We will first generate a SOAP web service using a top-down approach with an existing WSDL and then graphically map the database table structure to the expected message format of the SOAP web service (Note: Setup steps are at the end of each part for the necessary software. Part 1 of this blog needs to be completed.)
I made a shift to MuleSoft! After spending most of my career in Big Red and Big Blue, I decided to jump from the walls of the big commercial enterprise technology vendors to the fast moving world of open-source technologies, SaaS and the Cloud. I’ve worked with several of the traditional on-premise integration tools from Oracle and IBM and now I’ll be working with MuleSoft’s latest and greatest integration platform that brings integration to the cloud.
