How to build your CI/CD pipeline for the full API lifecycle

For many, a continuous integration (CI) and continuous deployment (CD) pipeline is an important aspect of software development that provides wide benefits––from reducing error-prone deployment work to providing early visibility into bugs. This blog post will cover the API lifecycle through different phases––from designing and managing APIs to deploying and discovering them. The blog will provide a step-by-step guide for implementation and configuration using Anypoint Platform, including:

Continuous Integration with Mule and Gradle

We use automated build systems not only because they make our lives easier by taking care of building our apps, but because they can run our automated tests and deploy what we build to the target platform. One of our options for building applications (especially Mule applications) is Gradle. The Gradle plugin for Mule apps provides a variety of ways to deploy Mule apps and that’s what we’ll be covering in this post!

Man in the Mirror, Apple’s Security Flaw, and the Importance of Unit Testing

The “Man-in-the-Middle” attack is such a well-recognized security risk, with established solutions and preventative measures in place that when I first heard about the recent ruckus around the Apple security flaw, I thought Apple’s trouble was more legal in natural, maybe some sort of royalties dispute between iTunes and the Michael Jackson estate. Only later did I found out what all the fuss was about “in the middle”,

DevOps: Cloud-based continuous deployment

So you’re using iON to run your Mule application and Maven to manage your development? Great! You’re now ready for the next stage: continuous deployment, which is the easiest way to push your application to iON during your development cycle.
