The DevKit is a tool for accelerating the development of Mule extensions. A popular Mule extension is what we call a Cloud Connector. A Cloud Connector provides Mule with the ability to receive and send messages to/from a cloud service provider. We do not make assumptions about whether that service provider is a REST-based service, a SOAP endpoint or a custom protocol on top of TCP. Having said that,
Less than a month ago we released the DevKit 3.0 and we are on a roll here. Just in case you are jumping onto the bandwagon a little late, the DevKit is a tool for authoring Mule extensions. The model is quite easy. First you write a POJO, then you annotate your POJO with Mule concepts and then when you run DevKit on the code you authored it will generate all the needed boiler plate code including a Mule-compatible schema.

Working with web APIs, local APIs and different data formats and structures is too damn hard. You have to write painful verbose code to:
- Query Web APIs and work with the data
- Enrich and join data from external services with local services
- Compose RESTful services from existing services
- Version services and data formats
- Merge data from different sources into a common data format
- Sort through sets of data
