Library upgrades in Mule ESB 3.6

February 3 2015

If you have read the Mule ESB 3.6 release notes then you already know what I’m about to say, but just to recap, here we go…

A lot of effort was put in 3.6 to upgrade our libraries stack. Even though we try to stay innovative, it doesn’t make sense to reinvent the wheel all the time, so we use a lot of third-party libraries. However, keeping those up-to-date while maintaining our strict backwards compatibility policy is something that’s really difficult to do. As a result, we haven’t always managed to keep up.

Polyglot programming in Mule: Scripting pack now part of the distribution

January 28 2015

Sometimes when transforming complex data structures or applying business rules to your integration, you may face the need to add some custom code. We make our best effort to try to productize and solve every common use case we come across, but sometimes it’s just not enough. When that happens, you probably turn to the programming language you love the most for help. If you’re a Java guy, you can build your own custom components and/or transformers inside Mule. If you’re into .NET, we recently released our .NET integration framework. We also have something we call the “scripting pack” which enables the use of scripting languages such as Groovy, Javascript, Python or Ruby inside your flows. For Mule 3.6, we decided to give it a big upgrade!

At Mulesoft we have open source software deep in our DNA: Our core product source code is on github. We have hundreds of public projects there as well, and we have contributed to many open source projects including Node.js itself. We’re excited about Node.js and have several large, sophisticated Node.js projects in development. Our use of cutting edge Node.js features has resulted in both a lot of knowledge gained and, no surprise, a lot of pain experienced.

Suppose that you have a Maven project and you want to download Node.js modules previously uploaded to NPM. One way of doing that without running node is by using the npm-maven-plugin. It allows the user to download the required Node modules without running node.js: It is completely implemented on the JVM.

Getting Started

First of all you will need to add the Mule Maven repo to you pom.xml file:

A brief introduction to JavaScript objects

August 22 2013

When you come from a class based programming language, doing objects in JavaScript feels weird: Where is the class keyword? How can I do inheritance?

As we are going to see, JavaScript is actually pretty simple. It supports class like definition of objects and single-inheritance out of the box.

But first, a small tip to change your reading experience. By using your browser JavaScript console, you can play with the examples without leaving this page:

I am very excited to announce that MuleSoft has launched a new open source integration product called iBeans (short for Integration Beans). iBeans provide a way to dramatically simplify common integration tasks for Web application developers.

Why did we create iBeans?
