When planning the roadmap of each release, product managers consider a variety of inputs to choose innovative features that meet customer needs and improve current functionality. When prioritizing what to focus on, we always consider our values: trust and customer success. Features that ensure the security, resiliency, and availability of the platform are put at the top of the list, with features that enable customer success right behind. 

Event-driven design: The power of event notifications

This is the second part of a series on “Moving from RESTful to EVENTful.”

As I see more and more companies working to add event-driven, sometimes called “real-time,” APIs to their programs, I am noticing that there are common cases where an event style is favored over others. Using Martin Fowler’s names as a reference point, I’m noticing that event sourcing (ES) and command-query responsibility segregation (CQRS) are the most commonly discussed event styles right now.

Meet the top MuleSoft Community contributors of Q3

We had another packed quarter in the MuleSoft Community! With multiple special Developer Meetups during MuleSoft CONNECT:Now, a record-breaking numbers of Community-led MuleSoft Meetups, and continued high-quality contributions of blogs, tutorials, and more. Below we highlight some of the best content from MuleSoft Ambassadors, customers, and partners that was contributed to the MuleSoft Community between August and October. 

DataWeave: Working with literal types

Literal types will let you define a type as an enumeration of possible values. This is useful in the use cases when a variable or function call can only take one out of a small set of possible values, for example, like days in a week (Saturday, Sunday, etc.) or HTTP request methods (GET, POST, DELETE, etc.). 

2,000 ideas and counting: How to submit your idea to the Idea Portal

We launched the MuleSoft Ideas Portal in early 2017 as a direct channel with our customers to house all incoming enhancement requests. This portal allows customers to submit ideas, view others’ ideas, and vote on the ideas they like. It also provides a view into other requests that are in the implementation pipeline. Since its launch, our customers have added more than 2,000 ideas! And as of today, we’ve delivered more than 160 of those ideas — that’s over 19,000 points — and there are more in the pipeline!  

DataWeave: Taking advantage of the type system

The type system can help you save time preventing errors, find quickly the function you need, instead of looking for it in the documentation, and let you code using types to define different behaviors for functions. In this post, I’ll show you how the DataWeave type system can help you develop in a more efficient and clear way.

I am happy to announce our new release of Anypoint Studio 7.7 is now available. Our goal with every new Anypoint Studio release is to further improve and streamline the API and integration development process for our MuleSoft devs. This means making it faster to build, with more powerful and more intuitive tooling. This release includes a new perspective for inspecting input and output payloads when using DataWeave, the ability to natively create API specifications in Studio,
