The Mule IDE 2.2.1 release that went out today contains a big productivity improvement: a hot deployment builder. It allows you to deploy your project to a running Mule 3 instance automatically. Read all about hot deployment in Mule 3 in the user guide.
The easiest way to get started with the hot deployment builder is to create a new Mule project. It will have the builder attached automatically.
Spring has become a highly popular framework for the development of web applications, thanks to a compelling support for web features, both at its core and within extensions modules. When it comes to deployment time, Spring shines again by its container agnosticism. Because Spring web applications are pretty much self contained, they can get deployed on any JavaEE container. With a plethora of containers available, picking one can be a daunting task.
I’m pleased to announce that Mule team has just released 3.0 Milestone 2. Before we get into the features coming in Mule 3.0, I’d like to talk about the theme for this release.
The overall theme for Mule 3.0 is simplicity. We are looking at every part of Mule to see what we can do to make things even easier. Mule is a powerful platform, but we realise not everyone wants or needs all that power.
