We’re big fans of real-time here at MuleSoft, always asking “why wait for anything?”.  This week we have Ross our CTO and Dave our Salesforce Architect and Integration Strategy Lead talking at local events, the CloudMafia meet up and the Salesforce.com Integration and Analytics meet up. We’d love to see you at either of these events this Wednesday evening.

Mule 3.3 Hackathon Results


A new Mule release has to come with another internal hackathon. Our development teams focused on using the new features we added in Mule 3.3 and we came to the conclusion “A hackathon is like a box of chocolate, you never know what your are gonna get”. In our case, we got some really cool applications, so cool that some of those can become real products in the future.

Mule 3.3: Mule 3 Reloaded


We’ve just released Mule ESB 3.3 into the wild.  This is a big release for us and and marks a huge step forward in the ease of use of Mule and what you should expect from an integration platfrom.  Not only has Mule Studio been significantly improved and the brand new DataMapper added, but Mule itself has also undergone a number of significant improvements.

With the flexibility and power of Mule Flows introduced in Mule ESB 3.0 along with Mule Studio including DataMapper and the improvements to Mule itself in this new release, Mule ESB 3.3 really is “Mule 3 Reloaded”.  Read the recent whole product release announcement for an overview of everything that is being released with Mule ESB 3.3, then continue reading this post to get the low down on some of the most important new feature in Mule.

Would you like chicken or pasta? Chocolate or vanilla? Coffee or tea? White wine or red? Component or transformer? If you have a piece of custom code, should you implement it as a custom transformer or as a custom component?

Technically, you can do either. But under what circumstances is it better to use a transformer versus a component?

In response to the growing demand we’ve seen for application and data connectivity across the cloud ecosystem, this week we are renaming our cloud integration platform as a service Mule iON to CloudHubTM. I’d like to give you a quick insight into why we’ve changed the platform name.

With Mule Studio DataMapper, Cloud Connectors, new management functions and so much more, developing with Mule was made significantly simpler in the latest release.  Join Albin Kjellin, MuleSoft Enterprise Architect, for a walkthrough of the new Mule in action.

This is a live action webinar: all demos, no slides.

The SOAP standard was created to address the communication needs between different applications independently of the programming language, platform or technology in use. It is a standardized protocol based on XML over a variety of communication protocols such as HTTP, to invoke methods on remote objects. In this blogpost we’re going to consume SOAP web services implemented with the Microsoft Windows Communication Foundation framework (WCF) from a Mule application. WCF is part of the .NET framework since version 3.0 and provides the building blocks to expose C# and VB.NET methods as SOAP web services, hosted on the IIS web server.

Today I am going  to introduce you to some powerful new features in Mule 3.3:

  • Improved Error Handling: New exception strategy patterns fully integrated in Studio. Included are Try/Catch, Rollback processing and Conditional Exception processing in Choice routers based on exception type, or just about any criteria!

  • Iterative Processing using Foreach Scope: Allows for iterative loop type processing while maintaining the original message context

  • Mule Expression Language: A new, unified expression language to improve consistency and ease of use when validating, filtering, routing, or transforming messages

  • Cache: Improve performance with “In memory” caching of messages, such as the results of service calls

  • Graphical Data Mapper: A new graphical tool to easily transform from one data format to another data format while also mapping specific fields within the message structure. Formats supported include XML, JSON, CSV, POJOs, collections of POJOs, and EXCEL

We’re happy to announce another great addition to our Mule iON platform today: role based access control. With it you can easily collaborate with other developers inside your organization, give access to support teams and limit account administration.
