A somewhat “hidden feature” of the Mule Maven Plugin is the ability to use stored encrypted Anypoint user credentials in deployments. Normally, when deploying an application using a deployment strategy, the user either sets plain text credentials in the application’s POM, or injects them into the plugin configuration through the command line, or sets them through a property.
Mule applications and deployments can be fully managed using Maven. In the development phase, Anypoint Studio makes it easy to manage your application dependencies using Maven. For Deployment tasks, Mule provides a Maven plugin that helps automate the application deployment to different target runtime environments such as Standalone, CloudHub, ARM, Cluster, and more.
A core component of the continuous integration process, that includes the previously discussed test automation framework, is the build process. As soon as the developer commits the code to version control repository, the build tool compiles the source code runs unit and integration tests and generates feedback for the developers.
Interested in learning more about how to use Anypoint Platform? It’s time to get that dust off your running shoes because we’re going to get you in top MuleSoft shape. There’s nothing like having something extra to add to your learning routine, whether it’s helpful tips from our forum or challenges from the Champions Program, we’re growing the number of resources for you to become an Anypoint Platform expert.
For a while now there have been maven archetypes for creating mule apps and domains. Such archetypes make getting started with development easier by automatically generating the basic core structure and files of mule projects (think configuration files, test classes, pom). This is especially interesting since the introduction in 3.5.0 of shared resources through mule domains which could make your app depend on another external project (a domain) and using Maven to manage dependencies makes perfect sense.
If you’re a Mule user, there’s a good chance that you’re using Maven to automate building and testing of your applications. We’re happy to announce Mule Maven Plugin 2.0, to help you automate your deployment and integration tests. This plugin will help you no matter where do you want it to run: CloudHub, a local Standalone server, Anypoint Runtime Manager, a local cluster or using the Mule Agent.
I get the awesome opportunity to work with lots of MuleSoft developers. Today, many are venturing into the brave new world of connector development. I find a new connector developer’s first steps into this realm can be challenging. My hope, with this blog post, is to identify some of those common gotchas in connector development with Anypoint Connector DevKit. I won’t spend much time on implementation here.
Gradle is gaining more and more popularity as a build system. It combines the power of scripting with the simplicity of conventions. Declarative builds are very straightforward, where customizations do not end up in tons of messy configurations.
Currently, Mule has two ways of building projects:
Apps can be built through Mule Studio, which is simple by nature but not very friendly with continuous integration,
