Sweet & Simple: Using SOQL Relationship Queries with Salesforce.com Connector

motif

The best things in life are often sweet and simple. However, “S & S” is an easy concept to understand and appreciate but often hard to implement. For example, a sweet and simple way to attract traffic to our blog would be to show women in bikinis playing with cats. In reality that is rather hard to pull off for a technical site. There simply is no budget to publish anything like “API Illustrated,

Mule How-to: Build a Batch Enabled Cloud Connector

motif

When we announced the December 2013 release, an exciting new feature also saw daylight: The Batch Module. If you haven’t read the post describing the feature’s highlights, you should, but today I’d like to focus on how the <batch:commit>block interacts with Anypoint™ Connectors and more specifically, how you can leverage your own connectors to take advantage of the feature.

In a nutshell,

Simplify authentication and user management with Mule and Stormpath

The dreaded user table. Think about it: whenever you start working on a new end-user application, you’ll have to create a table to store emails, user information and passwords. And then you’ll need to add support for the password reset workflow. And so on and so forth. The wheel gets re-invented time and again. Of course, you may go sophisticated and decide to manage users in LDAP or even – gasp – ActiveDirectory.

Introducing Auto-Paging for Anypoint Connectors

motif

Back in the old days when I used to write SaaS integration apps for living (long time ago, like 2 months back…) I always found it somehow difficult to reconcile large datasets with the Anypoint Cloud Connectors. Don’t get me wrong, I love those connectors! They solve a lot of issues for me, from actually dealing with the API to handle security and reconnection. However,

Mule OAuth2 support: Even easier still

motif

This post is brought to you by… you! Yes, a couple of weeks back I was writing about how dealing with OAuth2 secured APIs got way easier since Mule’s August 2013 Release. We got such a great feedback that we decided to incorporate some of it in our latest October 2013 release.

The recently upgraded Redis connector for Mule allows you to interact with this NoSQL data-store in a convenient manner. This blog is a tutorial that you can follow in order to get your feet wet with Redis, if you don’t know it already, or Mule, if you have Redis experience and want to see how they both can work together.

In this tutorial, we will build a very simple back-end that captures page visit count for identified users via a web bug.

OAuth 2 just got a bit easier

motif

Ever since Devkit made its first entry into the Mule family, a big variety of OAuth enabled Cloud Connectors were made available. Salesforce, Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, LinkedIn and Google Apps suite are just some examples of the APIs we’ve connected to using that support.

When we started thinking about the August 2013 release we decided to take it one step forward and make it easier than ever.

Data as a Service: An OData Primer

motif

It’s pretty common to hear and read about how everything in the IT business is going “as a service…”. So you start hearing about Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Serivce (PaaS) and even Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS, which is where our very own CloudHub platform plays on). But what about data?

APIs, they’re everywhere

Explore the graph with Mule and Neo4j

motif

Mule has a very extensive support for NoSQL data stores, which covers pretty much the whole spectrum of what’s available out there, from key/value stores to document-oriented databases. The only piece that was missing in the puzzle was connectivity to a graph database: with the introduction of the Neo4j connector, the gap is now closed.

Popularized by the advent of social media, the need for efficiently storing,

Track your clients and more with the new Box connector

motif

As you probably know, Box.com released a new API last december. And as you also probably know, we’re old fans of everything Box (you might remember prior posts about how to move Salesforce files into Box and how to move your Facebook pics to Box). That’s why when we heard about this new API we couldn’t wait to start playing with it, so that now we proudly announce the new Box Connector v2.0!
