Drag and Drop Data Mapping for Mule


Almost any application you build using Mule will require some kind of data transformation. One thing that I frequently hear come up on the user lists, when I’m talking at JUGs, etc, is how to easily map data between XML formats, Java Beans, and flat files. If you have used Mule at all, you’ll know there are several solutions already for doing this, both as part of Mule and available through a number of great MuleForge projects.

Mulecast: A conversation with the creator of The Science Service Bus (SSB)


In this episode, MuleSource Sr. Director of Engineering speaks with Edwin Tellman, creator of The Science Service Bus (SSB). As the name implies, the SSB allows programs to send data to each other and serves as a translator service, translating the data from the format preferred by the source application to the format preferred by the destination application. It is inspired by, and is backwards-compatible with the Gaggle program.

Galaxy on EC2 in one hour!


We have been running Galaxy successfully on our in-house servers and laptops for demo purposes for some time now and decided that having a running image of Galaxy on Amazon’s EC2 was the next logical step. Galaxy in the cloud gives us the opportunity to expose a running instance to a much wider audience than might otherwise interact directly with the product.

  • How Mule helps with integration in the Cloud
  • Best practices for planning and implementation
  • Test driven development with Mule

How SOA paved the way for Cloud

February 25 2009


Though some think SOA failed and others see it only as a partial success, this has been because of the approach to SOA and not its underlying principles. SOA (or what I’d rather call Service Orientation, but that doesn’t fit our obsession with TLAs) is responsible for beginning a new evolution in the way we build software. This change is as fundamental as the shift to OO programming but essentially a much bigger jump: OO was adopted one developer at a time,
