anypoint platform 2017 release

In an earlier blog post, we talked about how Anypoint Exchange has evolved in the November 2017 release, to make it easier for consumers to discover, learn, test and consume API assets. In this blog, we will talk about latest features added to API Manager and how they tie with Anypoint Exchange to help users better manage and govern their API assets.

Demo: Introducing Catalyst Accelerator for Retail

We’re excited to announce the release of our new Catalyst Accelerator for Retail, which illustrates API development best practices for retail-specific use cases. It provides developers with access to source code, API portals, and web experiences that are designed to showcase an application network for the following use-cases:

Best Practices for Planning, Designing, and Managing APIs

The size of the API economy is at an all-time high, with ProgrammableWeb reporting that there are over 17,000 APIs available on the web. The increasing demand for APIs has created a need to apply key API best practices.

But before you jump into creating APIs, in order to follow API best practices you need to ask yourself some questions. Why are you building an API? How should you mock your API?

MuleSoft at MuleSoft: How APIs Improve Business Processes

Read more on the rising value of APIs and how organizations can use APIs to improve business processes and better align IT and the business. 

Using Anypoint Platform to improve business processes at MuleSoft has been hugely successful. The good news is that with each successful integration, we are asked to do more and more and more, and we need to figure out how to manage the requests in a sustainable way.

Choose your own adventure – Anypoint Platform for APIs

Are you new to Anypoint Platform for APIs and want to figure out how it all works? Check out the interactive walkthrough for the Anypoint Platform for APIs.

The walkthrough lets you choose your own adventure by allowing you to pick a path that best matches your role in the example use case. At the top of each walkthrough page, under the title, is a blue label that indicates the permissions you need in the Anypoint Platform for APIs to perform the actions in the section. 

HowTo – REST API proxy to SOAP webservice

This blog post is a continuation of our first How To series, “APIFy your integrations,” where we started off by creating a SOAP API around a database.

Some organizations are entirely invested in either SOAP or RESTful web services. There is plenty of material already written on SOAP vs. REST, so there’s no need for us to take that on here.

It can be a use case driven decision where SOAP and REST can co-exist.

Monitor RAML APIs with API Science

At MuleSoft we truly believe in the power of RAML as a contract for APIs. RAML allows teams to quickly and easily define, build and collaborate on APIs. Our Anypoint Platform for APIs is built from the ground up to easily manage RAML based APIs by providing a simple RAML API proxy as well as an easy to use RAML API Console.

Anypoint Platform June 2015 Release: Business Groups

I’m excited to announce a new capability released with Anypoint Platform June 2015: Business Groups. Business Groups provide a mechanism for delegating management and administration of Anypoint Platform to users within different business units or functions. Additionally, Business Groups provide complete isolation of resources allowing for multi-tenant use cases within your Anypoint Platform account.

Centralized administrators can create a multi-level, hierarchical structure of Business Groups and then delegate users from the specific groups to be administrators.

I am extremely happy to announce a significant set of updates to Anypoint Platform for APIs that were introduced this month. These updates will make it easier for API owners and administrators to publish their APIs in a way that is sure to further their successful adoption. The sections below describe the core new capabilities introduced in this release.

Instant management through automatic deployment

The management of APIs with Anypoint Platform consists of the deployment of a proxy application to an API gateway runtime.

Give your old school API some love

If you’re an assiduous reader of this blog, then you probably already heard about our vision around APIs, our Anypoint API Manager solution and all our RAML based stories. Those are our recommended way of approaching REST APIs and if you haven’t already, we all highly recommend you to take a look at them. However, we’re about connecting everything, everywhere. Thus we recognize that there are a lot of APIs out there built in plain old Java code and a migration process is not something you can do overnight.
