Mule 4: Migrating DevKit projects to the new Mule SDK

mule 4 runtime

A few days ago, we proudly announced the GA release of Mule 4 and Studio 7, a major evolution of the core runtime behind Anypoint Platform. Mule 4 enhances application development velocity with up to 50% fewer steps and concepts to learn, including a simplified language for connectivity, clear access to data, automatic tuning, and smoother upgrade processes.

Inside an application network: End-to-end API chain correlation with Splunk

As an IT professional, have you ever been in a situation where you know something is broken, but you can’t manage to spot where it is coming from?

It is frustrating and quite time-consuming. You can try to use “divide and conquer” to determine the root cause. Step by step, you reduce the problem space until you isolate the origin of the issue. Yet, in most cases, you still don’t fully know what complex chain of events led to the pain.

Introducing the new MuleSoft developer quick start guides

I am excited to announce a new guide format for content that helps make understanding Anypoint Platform and implementing typical integrations patterns much easier. With Anypoint Platform, an organization can not only integrate any two systems together, but can also deploy, and manage those applications all from within a single platform.

The goal of these guides is to teach you — the developer — how to wield the platform and gain a meaningful understanding on how to achieve success with your own projects.

User management and provisioning have always been tedious and time-consuming tasks for IT professionals. If you’ve seen any of my blog posts before, you’ll know that there are two things I like: exposés in the form of parentheses and removing tedious manual work.

Naturally, this meant I ended up trying to solve user management. One of the first questions I asked when I started addressing this problem was: why hasn’t this been solved yet?

MuleSoft at MuleSoft: The Center for Enablement’s discovery phase

Previously, I wrote a blog post about IT Engineering here at MuleSoft and how we use MuleSoft products at MuleSoft. Inter-team communication is critical for us to complete projects and we decided to implement a Center for Enablement (C4E) approach internally. The MuleSoft customer success team offered to assist us in pursuing an evolved approach to developing MuleSoft applications for IT.

MuleSoft at MuleSoft: Using our own products in IT engineering at MuleSoft

I’ve been an Integration Architect in IT engineering here at MuleSoft for about one and a half years. When I arrived, our group had a full queue of potential development projects, but were still maintaining many legacy and point-to-point applications created by external developers outside of IT. Each application was designed well and accomplished singular goals that satisfied the use cases from the business owners, but it’s been challenging to maintain these legacy applications within the context of our ever-evolving products.

website speed increase

Recently, the RAML team decided it was time for an updated server infrastructure. The original site used a web-based Content Management System (CMS) that required a lot of costly server resources. Each client request to the CMS invoked scripts that rendered the pages from outside sources, such as the database and theme;

This led to significant processing time before providing what was, in most cases, a static page. Of course, we ran a caching layer in front of the web server to speed up some requests,

Your next integration project should be an API project

During my time at MuleSoft, I’ve had a lot of conversations with people from other companies about their specific challenges and one recurring theme is almost always present: the conversation starts out talking about point-to-point integrations. It’s pretty natural when presented with two systems to want to draw a connection. The data here is needed there and, after that, we’re done because a problem was solved.
