Ensuring developer productivity with Mule 4 and Anypoint Studio has been a core priority for MuleSoft this year. We’re excited to announce the GA of Anypoint Studio 7.4, which comes with Mule 4.2.2 and introduces native OAS support, dependency management, and API search capabilities to accelerate API development.
Routers in Mule implement the Message Router pattern described in the seminal work on integration patterns: Enterprise Integration Patterns, Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf. Addison-Wesley Professional; October 20, 2003. They allow you to route a Mule event from one Event Processor to one or many Event Processors.
The Content Enricher is a useful content transformation pattern that elaborates a basic message with information from another system. A typical use case is described in the seminal work on integration patterns: Enterprise Integration Patterns, Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf. Addison-Wesley Professional; October 20, 2003. It describes a scenario where one system may provide a customer ID, but the target system requires the customer name and address. This additional information must be retrieved from another system and combined with the customer ID to form the information required by the target system.
Often times when you are processing data through a flow, you may want to treat certain errors differently than others. For instance, if you are trying to select records from Salesforce, you would want to handle a record not found error differently than an out of memory error.

In my previous blog post, I discussed the basics of error handling with Mule 4, helped understand what a Mule error is, what the two major error handling scopes in Mule 4 are, as well as how they work. In this post, I will discuss how to take these basic concepts and build them up so that you can implement error handling strategies in your application (and not be completely lost when doing so).
Like many developers and architects who build APIs and integrations, I was on top of the world when I completed the training on Anypoint Platform Development fundamentals (Mule 4); I was now able to take an idea for an API and build, design, deploy, and implement my API in a matter of hours. I now held the shiny key to become a MuleSoft Certified Developer — I just had to pass theMuleSoft Certified Developer –
