Inside an application network: End-to-end API chain correlation with Splunk

application network

As an IT professional, have you ever been in a situation where you know something is broken, but you can’t manage to spot where it is coming from?

It is frustrating and quite time-consuming. You can try to use “divide and conquer” to determine the root cause. Step by step, you reduce the problem space until you isolate the origin of the issue. Yet, in most cases, you still don’t fully know what complex chain of events led to the pain.

Introducing the new MuleSoft developer quick start guides

mulesoft developer quick start guide

I am excited to announce a new guide format for content that helps make understanding Anypoint Platform and implementing typical integrations patterns much easier. With Anypoint Platform, an organization can not only integrate any two systems together, but can also deploy, and manage those applications all from within a single platform.

The goal of these guides is to teach you — the developer — how to wield the platform and gain a meaningful understanding on how to achieve success with your own projects.

MuleSoft at MuleSoft: Creating a lookup System API with a C4E

In the previous blog post of this series on C4E, I discussed using an API-led approach to build software applications. The C4E practice encourages reuse of resources, collaboration with third-party developers, and frequent direct interaction with business owners. During the initial discovery phase, the team recognizes the opportunity to develop a System API that provides an endpoint for retrieving data from a lookup list. The System API also allows for the list to be replaced and updated.

1. Overview

I have created a Mule application that pings URLs to ensure that the URLs are up. And if the URL is down for one reason or another, then the Mule application is capable of sending out an email notification. At the time of this writing, the Mule application could send out an email notification,

Easier assertions for XML and JSON in MUnit

This is a guest blog from a member of our developer community. Dr. Roger Butenuth is a Senior Java Consultant at codecentric, he has been using Anypoint Platform for five years, with projects ranging from building simple SOAP routing/transformation to introducing the API-led approach to a Fortune 500 company.

Building Mule applications differs from coding in Java. Instead of typing all your code (with a lot of CTRL+space completion),

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.

Weaving it with Dataweave expression

We all know how powerful Dataweave Transform Message component is. This is such a powerful template engine that allows us to transform data to and from any format (XML, CSV, JSON, Pojos, Maps, etc. basically ).

So if we need to transform we need a Dataweave component in our flow. But wait! Dataweave also provides us a function called Dataweave function that helps us to execute Dataweave language outside a Dataweave transform component.
