A pattern is a generic solution to a generic problem that is likely to occur over and over again. Patterns, for the purpose of this article, form a language that system designers can use like recipes: “if you find this type of problem, then you can apply this type of solution”.
In the domain of applications integration, patterns are particularly helpful. Application integration is complex, it typically involves several different systems,
When you’re working with Mule, you’re usually concerned about responding to messages that come in and making sure you’re routing them correctly from service to service. But what if you just want to trigger a service component on a set interval? What if its method doesn’t require any incoming data at all?

A couple of months ago, I reviewed the process for deploying Mule Galaxy, our SOA governance platform, onto Amazon’s EC2. Not long after that, I was introduced to cloudtools, a set of tools for deploying, managing, and testing Java EE applications on EC2. With these tools, it becomes trivial to deploy an application like Mule Galaxy to the cloud in minutes, rather than hours.
Are you trying to poll a database and transform the results to a certain plain text file? Do you need to pick up a data file, split it into individual records and insert those records into the database? Would you like to poll a source database and send the results to another database for insertion?
Mule provides different approaches to handling errors. You can set exception strategies for connectors, models, and individual services. You can use the exception router to specify where the message goes when an error occurs. And you can use the exception type filter for fine-grained control. Following is an introduction to these approaches.
