At MuleSoft, we’ve been saying for years that point-to-point integration is evil. With time to market measured in minutes or hours, point-to-point integration projects measured in man-years are headed the way of the Dodo. And the no-software no-hardware model of iPaaS promises to shrink time to market even more.
But how fast can you deploy an enterprise-grade integration from scratch? We’re setting out to break preconceived notions of time to market with the 15-minute integration.
In Part 1 of this three part blog, we created a simple message flow in Mule Studio exposed as a basic HTTP service that retrieves employee data from an Oracle HR database and returns it in JSON format. JSON is a standard format that is very popular among web and mobile applications. Let’s now take a look at how to easily turn this into a SOAP web service,
CMIS is an open standard that allows different content management systems to inter-operate over the Internet. Specifically, CMIS defines an abstraction layer for controlling diverse document management systems and repositories using web protocols.
Thanks to everyone who was able to join us for the latest Mule 101 webinar.
We’ve taken your questions, feedback, and suggestions and created another webinar built entirely for you. In this webinar, we’ll show show how to easily build and deploy an application from Mule Studio. In this 30 minute demo, Jameson Triplett, MuleSoft’s Lead Trainer, will build a simple integration application to send files to Salesforce.
In the journey of a thousand miles towards world-class documentation, we have taken the first few steps!
Long a candidate for improvement, Mule Documentation has recently undergone several foundation-layer improvements that will help us move more quickly as we produce new content and clean up the old. Listed below are a few changes aimed at dramatically improving the user experience for our readers.
Merged Content – Where once Mule documentation existed as “silos”
This April and May, the Mule team and I will be hitting the road for Spring 2013 Mule Summit tour. Our Fall 2012 Summit series was our biggest ever and featured guest speakers from companies like Express Scripts, Sky and Intuit all talking candidly about their use of Mule. Refusing to rest on our laurels, we’re making the 2013 Summits even better.
Even today, when integrating with critical backend systems (e.g. order fulfillment system and shipping management system), it is quite common to encounter data being transferred in flat file format. Often the records to be transferred will need to be sorted and de-duped before they can be inserted into another system. For example, there could be multiple update entries for the same item and the sequence of the update calls is important. Here we would like to show you an example of how to leverage Mule’s built-in support for in-memory databases to make it really easy to perform such tasks when working with flat files.
In this post, I will go over some tips I’ve been collecting which can make your life as a developer just a little bit easier if you come from other operating systems. Of course the list can grow, but here is my list. This article is based on MacOS X 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion), but should be helpful for other versions as well.
