future of integrationThe explosion of APIs, SaaS applications, and mobile devices has created a massive integration wave. The resulting shift in the way we connect is forcing an IT mega change unlike anything we’ve seen before.  As the development model moves from writing reams of code to composing APIs together, a new generation of middle tier application architecture is being born. What does this mean for you? Ross Mason, MuleSoft’s Founder and CTO, will provide his perspective on the future of this growing movement.

Topics include:

  • The give and take of APIs
  • A glimpse into the connected revolution

Nagios

Motivation

We are evaluating using Nagios or a similar Big Brother Enterprise solution for displaying information about our many Enterprise Mule instances, applications and the status of our production and staging environments. The only sure thing is that we presented a budget for buying a couple of 55” monitors and were approved. Pure awesomeness!

First solution: Do it yourself

This is complicated. We would have to hire a Java programmer to develop an agent to gather statistics from servers distributed in different geographical zones. Pretty heavy stuff. The project would take a while to complete. And once that is done, we would have to start worrying about upgrades, deployment of the agent, and paperwork. We are using a waterfall cycle. You know the pain.

We are on a mission to simplify integration at every level, whether that be large scale service orientation, legacy integration, SaaS automation, mobility enablement or even data loading.  For those not familiar with dataloader.io, its a cloud service offered by MuleSoft that allows SalesForce users to upload, download and delete data.  This is an important task, before any SaaS application is useful you need to load data into it. Previous to dataloader.io SalesForce customers had to download a Windows application and run data uploads from a local machine.  This isn’t what Marc Benioff had in mind when he talked about his ‘No Software’ vision. We’ve now completed that vision by creating the first, cloud-based dataloader.

JavaOne is here again! We have an number of sessions this week including our CTO, Ross Mason talking about Real-time APIs. If you are on the expo floor, please stop by and visit us at the Liferay booth.

Ross will be talking about “Going Real-Time: How to Build a Streaming API
Venue/ Room: Parc 55 Market Street
Date and Time: 10/1/12 7:30pm

Adrian Cole, CloudHub Architect (and founder of jclouds) will also have two talks at JavaOne

Have you ever tried to move already created elements through the canvas in Mule Studio? Well, if you did, you may have figured out that the elements weren’t moved at all. You would probably have seen a black box while you were dragging elements into the canvas and nothing else; the elements were not transported.

Drag and drop support is important because when users use a tool like Mule Studio, they intuitively try to move elements. Furthermore, it saves a lot of work, since you don’t have to delete components from the canvas and then add them again from the palette; you can just move the components without the need of removing them. It makes your job easier, from the creation of the element, to the configuration. (When you decide to remove an element, you probably have already configured it).

Event Synopsis

DataMapper

Data mapping and transformation are essential elements of many application integration projects. Integrated in the Mule Studio graphical design environment, DataMapper brings powerful data integration capabilities to Mule.  Join Dave Eason, MuleSoft Solutions Consultant, for a demo-focused webinar covering DataMapper’s basic and advanced features.

 

Topics include:
  • An overview of DataMapper in Mule 3.3.1

Join MuleSoft at Dreamforce 2012!

0

Dreamforce 2012Dreamforce is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited to join in on the fun. Whether you’re a Salesforce Admin, System Integrator or a fellow ISV, we have something new to show you! If you haven’t registered yet for your free Expo pass there’s still time. Register here and be sure to visit us at Cloud Expo Booth #1500 for a chance to win $2000. Also don’t forget to add the MuleSoft  sessions to your agenda builder. See you there!

One of the first integration problems that companies encounter when using a new application is data loading. Whether it’s a migrating data from an old product to a new one, managing and cleaning data, warehousing data, or replicating it from one place to another, it’s a painful task. No one knows this better than the Salesforce community. If you’re a Salesforce admin, you’re familiar with the Apex data loader – a cumbersome desktop application that many people would much rather do without. With the power of the CloudHub platform and Mule Studio, we knew that we could do better. And so, we created dataloader.io – a simple application that is free, with unlimited usage and no software required.

Its that time of year again when we take the Mule team on the road for Mule Summit. In previous Summits we’ve had guest speakers from Forbes, Intuit, Facebook, Sky and the National Lottery all talking candidly about their use of Mule.  The next round of Mule Summit events will be visiting even more cities with even more speakers.

Sign up today to join the core Mule development team and successful Mule users at the premier integration event of the year! Meet the experts and kickstart your integration project at Mule Summit, where you’ll have the opportunity to influence product direction and get hands on with Mule ESB and Mule Studio in our interactive labs.
