At Mulesoft we have open source software deep in our DNA: Our core product source code is on github. We have hundreds of public projects there as well, and we have contributed to many open source projects including Node.js itself. We’re excited about Node.js and have several large, sophisticated Node.js projects in development. Our use of cutting edge Node.js features has resulted in both a lot of knowledge gained and, no surprise, a lot of pain experienced.
It’s been a long time coming, but we’re glad it’s here. Oracle just announced the arrival of Java 8 – a long-anticipated update which includes the addition of lambda expressions and support for functional programming. Here’s a look at some of the new features and why they are important to engineering at MuleSoft.
Suppose that you have a Maven project and you want to download Node.js modules previously uploaded to NPM. One way of doing that without running node is by using the npm-maven-plugin. It allows the user to download the required Node modules without running node.js: It is completely implemented on the JVM.
First of all you will need to add the Mule Maven repo to you pom.xml file:
After doing that, you will need to add the following to the build->plugin section of your pom.xml file:
If you’ve evaluated RESTx, our brand new platform for building RESTful web services, you’ve certainly noticed its Python-Java hybrid nature. Indeed, besides its vocation of being the simplest way to create RESTful web services, RESTx has been designed with the idea of letting programmers use their favorite JVM language when creating resource components.
I am very excited to announce that MuleSoft has launched a new open source integration product called iBeans (short for Integration Beans). iBeans provide a way to dramatically simplify common integration tasks for Web application developers.
