A bit of history
We created Mule IDE to ease the work when developing with Mule. Along with the work on Mule 2.0 we started work on an updated version of the IDE that would allow you to graphically design Mule configurations. This turned out to be by far more work than initially expected so we decided to rescope the work. Right now we focus on the little helpers that make developing with Mule easy and cut out the graphical editor for now.

I just got back from QCon in San Francisco. QCon is one of the best conferences around (IMHO). The speakers are great, the content quality is excellent, and the hallway conversations are thought provoking. If only I could’ve attended more!

The Mule expression framework was one of the new features in Mule 2. It provides a very powerful way to make queries on incoming messages and use the results to control how Mule behaves. Mule already supports a variety of expression languages such as Xpath and Groovy. There is also expressions for navigating the current message headers, payload and attachments.

You may have noticed a lot of changes to the MuleSource documentation wiki lately. With the help of all of our great developers, I’ve been slowly updating the pages, validating content, updating outdated information, and restructuring. We’ve also added a lot of new content to the Getting Started guide and set up navigation so that it flows like a book, making it easier for new users to get up and running.
