Developer Spotlight: How we made BattleBots

This post is the last in a three-part series covering the IoT projects that came out of our first internal hackathon of the year, and that we had on display at our first Integration of Things Zone at CONNECT 2015. Missed us there? Don’t fret, not only will you get a sense of the cool installations we built by reading the piece below, but we also share some of the code and tips that went into making them a reality.

Libraries upgrade recap for Mule 3.7

motif

If you have read the Mule ESB 3.7 release notes then you already know what I’m about to say, but just to recap, here we go…

A lot of effort was put in 3.7 to upgrade our libraries stack. That effort actually began in 3.6, and although the list of upgraded libraries is not so big as it was on that release, it’s somehow more significant given that we upgraded some dependencies that we held very close to our hearts and core.

Metadata Driven Development with Anypoint Studio

The idea of this post is to clarify some concepts around metadata, what is it, where is stored, how to use it and how it help us to develop our applications.

So, what is it?
Metadata is a term used in many places in the Software industry and its meaning may vary depending on what it’s used for. In the context of Anypoint Studio we are always talking about types and types related information.

Reliable Acquisition using the Sftp connector

motif

A high-reliability application (one that has zero tolerance for message loss) not only requires the underlying ESB to be reliable, but that reliability needs to extend to individual connections. If your application uses a transactional transport such as JMS, VM, or DB, reliable messaging is ensured by the built-in support for transactions in the transport. This means, for example, that you can configure a transaction on a JMS inbound endpoint that makes sure messages are only removed from the JMS server when the transaction is committed.

Shared Resources and Testing

motif

Testing is essential to all code, it’s a warranty on the expected behavior and a measure of quality. Having a large and thorough test suite increases the confidence we have on a system. That’s why Mule offers a number of options for testing, like our Functional Test Framework or MUnit, a good example of the former being FunctionalTestCase.
By extending from this class we can create our own tests around a Mule configuration XML file (or matest_blogtest_blogny) that will be run as an app in a Mule server.

Healthcare Attendee? How to get the most out of Dreamforce ‘15!

Did you know Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations are leveraging MuleSoft to radically transform healthcare? Providers are extending the point of care beyond the four walls of the hospital ward, and health insurance companies are moving from passive payers of claims to active managers of their policyholders’ lifestyle.

MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform enables these transformations by providing a new level of connectivity. To thrive in this new era,
