How to build your CI/CD pipeline for the full API lifecycle

For many, a continuous integration (CI) and continuous deployment (CD) pipeline is an important aspect of software development that provides wide benefits––from reducing error-prone deployment work to providing early visibility into bugs. This blog post will cover the API lifecycle through different phases––from designing and managing APIs to deploying and discovering them. The blog will provide a step-by-step guide for implementation and configuration using Anypoint Platform, including:

Introducing Anypoint Visualizer

With the decentralization of IT and the adoption of APIs and microservices, enterprises are struggling to keep up with an accurate view of deployed APIs and their dependencies. This lack of visibility often translates into quality issues––whether it is failed deployments, lengthy processes for identifying and diagnosing of production issues, increased technical debt, or less reuse of available assets.

Introducing Anypoint Monitoring

Governance, visibility, and control are the trifecta requirements for software management. With digital landscapes comprised of APIs, integrations, applications, hardware devices, on-premises systems, and SaaS tools, the companies with the most accurate pulse on their digital landscapes are the ones setting economic and digital trends.

Building reusable components with REST Connect and Mule 4

Earlier this month, at MuleSoft CONNECT 2018, we unveiled Titan, the next major release of Anypoint Platform. A major component of this release includes Mule 4 and Studio, which offers an easy way to create reusable connectivity assets, like connectors and APIs, through REST Connect.

Introducing Anypoint Platform Titan release

Earlier this month, at MuleSoft CONNECT 2018, we unveiled Titan, the next major release of Anypoint Platform. This release represents our most comprehensive Anypoint Platform release to date and marks a major milestone in our plan to help customers build flexible, secure, multi-cloud application networks. This release includes updates to the following components of Anypoint Platform:

Creating a customer 360 with MuleSoft and Azure Data Lake Store

As companies embrace omnichannel strategies, achieving a 360-degree view of their customers has become increasingly challenging. Customer 360 is a continuous discipline around delivering a reliable view of their customers and relevant attributes so that any employee or system has access to the customer information it needs to manage the customer journey. The discipline is iterative in nature and involves 5 steps as illustrated below. In this article, we will provide a detailed guide regarding one strategy you can use to capture customer information (step 2,

Integrating with Ethereum using MuleSoft – Part 2

In part one of this blog, I walked you through the process of setting up an Ethereum client and generating two Ether wallets for the purpose of testing. In this blog, I’ll show you how easy it is to leverage MuleSoft to connect to and send funds from one wallet to another using an Ethereum connector that was developed using Anypoint DevKit.

Integrating with Ethereum using MuleSoft – Part 1

In my last article, I provided an example of how you can use Anypoint Platform to connect and expose a Blockchain Proxy Layer API. The proxy layer, on top of MultiChain, provides all the benefits of Anypoint Platform and gives you granular control to share data and monitor transactions. MultiChain is just one of a growing number of blockchain platforms in the market. Within the market, there are two types of blockchain networks: public and private.

Running Mule 4 on a Raspberry Pi

What an amazing time it is! We recently announced a major milestone: the GA release of Mule 4!

The new release of Mule is all about ease of use and accelerating the speed of development. With up to 50% fewer steps and concepts to learn, Mule 4 jumpstarts integration projects with better access to data and a completely new reactive, non-blocking (and self-tuning) runtime engine!

Keep your data with the new Mule 4 ObjectStore connector

An ObjectStore is a Mule component which allows for simple key-value storage. Although it can serve a wide variety of use cases, it’s mainly designed for:

  • Storing synchronization information like watermarks
  • Storing temporal information like access tokens
  • Storing user information

If you are a Mule 3 user, then you’re already familiar with this concept. However, we feel that creating and defining these stores could be made much simpler.
