A few months ago, MuleSoft was a major sponsor of Cloud Computing Expo Silicon Valley, the world’s leading Cloud event, which attracted over 5,000 attendees and hundreds of other leading cloud companies. At the conference, MuleSoft CTO Ross Mason spoke to a crowded session hall about the top 10 pitfalls of point to point integration to avoid in the cloud. We also set up a booth on the expo floor, where we had live demos of iON running non-stop throughout the event. Over the course of 3 days, we had over 300 people stop by our booth to learn about how iON works and try it for themselves.
MuleSoft has released it SAP-certified connector for the worlds leading open source ESB. Mariano Capurro, Technical Engineering Manager, MuleSoft will be discussing common SAP integration use cases, digging int the fundamental SAP building blocks (such IDocs, BAPIs and JCo) and SAP integration alternatives during this upcoming webinar.
Register to learn about this innovative approach and how it can help simplify integration for your organization.

The DevKit is a tool for accelerating the development of Mule extensions. A popular Mule extension is what we call a Cloud Connector. A Cloud Connector provides Mule with the ability to receive and send messages to/from a cloud service provider. We do not make assumptions about whether that service provider is a REST-based service, a SOAP endpoint or a custom protocol on top of TCP. Having said that, we do offer certain services for some types of service providers. In this post I’m going to be talking about connection management, a feature in the DevKit that provides management and sharing of connections for those service providers that have stateful protocols.
SAP is one of the most popular Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions on the market. But the big challenge for SAP customers is how to integrate SAP with other systems and application, which is key to automate and optimize business processes.
Here at MuleSoft, every few months we take a couple days off and hold a company Hackathon. Usually these are individual efforts to build something unique and interesting using the technology and products that we create at MuleSoft.
To kick off the new year, we decided to sponsor a team event and see if we could get some creative new ideas that might be more then a single person could implement in a day. The goal was to develop an iApp that demonstrated the power of the Mule iON platform. iApps are integration solutions developed on iON that solve a common problem and can be provisioned for use by different customers. The results were pretty inspiring making it difficult for those of us on the judging panel to choose a single winner.
We haven’t stopped though. Since releasing Mule 3.2.1, we’ve been busy working on Mule 3.3 M1. This is the first of a number of monthly milestones we will be making available to the community on the road towards Mule 3.3. In this blog post I’ll not only go over what’s new in M1, but also give you an idea of what we have planned for Mule 3.3.
Exception handling in event-driven systems like Mule can sometimes be a challenge because there are usually many more things happening at once, In this blog I will show you how to implement some common error handling patterns in Mule. We are going to cover the following use cases:
- Route a message before exception through an exception strategy to a dead letter queue
- Route an original message through an exception strategy to a dead letter queue
- Route a message based on exception type
You went to the gym twice last year yet you are considering renewing your membership; yep, 2012 is here. And while we’ve seen a number of exciting developments in enterprise IT in 2011, it was just the beginning. There’s a lot in store next year, here are 6 key developments to look out for in 2012.
I’m probably preaching to the choir here, but application messaging is extremely important for a wide variety of applications. It allows you to:
- Decouple application message processing from receiving
- Orchestrate data between two applications
- Handle the loss of a server without losing data
- Process data at a later date when you have more capacity
Yet, creating a reliable, highly scalable messaging infrastructure is extremely difficult – and sometimes not even an option. Amazon SQS takes that problem off your hands – it’s a hosted, highly scalable, reliable queueing service for applications. And now you can use it easily in your Mule applications with our new SQS support.
