We’re very excited to announce the May 2014 release of Anypoint Platform.  This new release, which includes the GA release of Mule 3.5.0, provides a faster, easier way to deliver data to business applications, whether they are event-driven, real-time data or batch data. The Anypoint Platform May 2014 release also includes templates to solve the most common Salesforce integration challenges and new security certifications for CloudHub,

Near Real Time Sync with Batch

motif

The idea of this blog post is to give you a short introduction on how to do Real time sync with Mule ESB. We’ll use several of the newest features that Mule has to offer – like the improved Poll component with watermarking and the Batch Module. Finally we’ll use one of our Anypoint Templates as an example application to illustrate the concepts.

What is it?

Near Real time sync is the term we’ll use along this blog post to refer to the following scenario:

“When you want to keep data flowing constantly from one system to another”

Anatomy of an Anypoint Template

Templates are simple solutions to start building your own integration applications that help to accelerate ‘time to value’ for your company. We focused on creating templates in a particular way to meet a high quality bar and to help you maintain that bar when you choose to extend our templates or build your own. In this post, I wanted to run you through our principles, structure, and provide some advice when using one of our templates.

Intro to Data Integration Patterns – Aggregation

In this post I want to close the loop on introducing you to the last of the five initial patterns that we are basing our Anypoint Templates on. I’m sure we’ll continue creating templates and we’re going to continue discovering new data integration patterns. If you are just entering at this post, I would recommend that you look through the previous four posts to understand the other patterns.

Intro to Data Integration Patterns – Correlation

So far, in this series, we have covered Migration, Broadcast, Bi-Directional Sync, and today we are going to cover a new integration pattern: Correlation. In an effort to avoid repeating myself, for those who are reading through the whole series, I will omit a lot of relevant information which is shared between the patterns that I have previously covered. I urge you to read at least the previous post about bi-directional sync as correlation can be viewed as a variation of bi-directional sync.

Intro to Data Integration Patterns – Bi-Directional Sync

In this post I will continue talking about the various integration patterns that we used as the basis for our Anypoint Templates. The next pattern to discuss is bi-directional sync. Since bi-directional sync can be also accomplished as two, 1:1 broadcast applications combined and pointed in opposite directions, I would recommend reading my last post on the broadcast pattern before digging into this one since I will omit a lot of the same content.

Intro to Data Integration Patterns – Broadcast

motif

In my post yesterday, we did a brief introduction to the migration pattern. Today we are going to do a similar overview of the broadcast pattern which is a kinetic version of the migration pattern.

Pattern 2: Broadcast

What is it?

Broadcast can also be called “one way sync from one to many”, and it is the act of moving data from a single source system to many destination systems in an ongoing,

Intro to Data Integration Patterns – Migration

Hi all, in this post I wanted to introduce you to how we are thinking about integration patterns at MuleSoft. Patterns are the most logical sequences of steps to solving a generic problem. Like a hiking trail, patterns are discovered and established based on use. Patterns always come in degrees of perfection with much room to optimize or adopt based on the needs to solve business needs. An integration application is comprised of a pattern and business use case.

Introducing Anypoint Templates for Salesforce Integration

Companies are looking to connect to their customers while leveraging customer data across the business to make more informed decisions. As organizations drive digital transformation initiatives to cater to today’s online consumer, there is a massive need for businesses to connect to their customer’s in an holistic way.

Most companies turn to CRM solutions to get a better view of their customers, but it’s not as simple as selecting a single CRM system.

APIs, Connectors and Integration Applications

motif

In this post, I wanted to give an analogy around how to think about API’s, connectors, and integration applications. This is something that can be confusing when you first start working with or building integrations since the definitions of applications and connectors are relative terms which means that they differ in the application space vs the integration space. Let’s say that you want to connect your laptop to your TV so that you can watch some YouTube videos.
