A corner-stone of professional software engineering is automation, which helps eliminate human error, reduce unintended variability, and increase reproducibility. In this article, we demonstrate how to automate the deployment of a Mule application to CloudHub, while customizing the default rendering of the Mule app in Anypoint Visualizer.
Mule apps are typically built and packaged with Maven using the Mule Maven plugin (MMP). This is fully supported by Anypoint Studio,
Since our Anypoint Platform October 2018 release, you’ve likely heard us talking a lot about the application network graph. We have continued to build on this foundational release and increasingly the application network graph is driving intelligence across Anypoint Platform.
Anypoint Visualizer is a graphical visualization that provides a high-level view of your application network. It automatically organizes APIs, Mule applications, and third-party systems into a comprehensive view of how they are connected. The data displayed is dynamically updated based on real-time traffic and does not require any prior configuration.
With the decentralization of IT and the adoption of APIs and microservices, enterprises are struggling to keep up with an accurate view of deployed APIs and their dependencies. This lack of visibility often translates into quality issues––whether it is failed deployments, lengthy processes for identifying and diagnosing of production issues, increased technical debt, or less reuse of available assets.
