Docs in Action: Reading Mule 3.0


Think Fast

What do developers prefer – reading documentation or donating bone marrow?

No matter what you answered, I have good news for you.

It is now easier than ever to join the National Marrow Registry.

Also, we’ve made a number of changes to the documentation for our latest release of Mule ESB. We hope these improvements will make it easier than ever to get started quickly using our best-of-breed integration platform.

What’s New in Mule ?

More is More

First of all, along with the many changes and improvements to the functionality within Mule ESB 3.0, our developers have been busy contributing to the doc set, meaning that much of the material is contributed by those who wrote the code.

New Reference Docs

Schema Reference: Javadoc-style schema reference added to help you get up and running with XML configuration in Mule 3.0.

Mule 3.0 Recipes

New CookBook pages include instructions and snippets to help you take advantage of the power of the Mule 3.0 platform. You can learn how to develop your own enterprise integration patterns, retrieve email attachments, or use the revamped exceptions handling strategy. There are also instructions on contributing your own CookBook entry.

We also made a few structural changes:

Navigation Tweaks

Left navigation added to enable easier navigation through the documentation.

Two Ways to Search

To find all occurrences of a term throughout the .org site, use the search box at the top right corner of the page.

To restrict your search to the current space, use the search box in the left nav bar, as shown here.


Best news of all: You can help make MuleSoft documents better.

Here are a few simple ways you can help improve the Mule documentations set, none of which require a painful incision into your pelvic bone, or even a mouth swab:

More to Come

We will continue to ask for your feedback, but please send us any questions or problems you have. Just like the Mule itself, our docs benefit the most when we harness the power of our community.

So sound off – we’re listening.
