Going Cloudy in the New Year with CloudHub


Forget exercise and healthy eating, one of your New Years resolutions should be to do more stuff in the cloud. We’d like to introduce you to CloudHub, an integration platform as a service (iPaaS). It allows you to do things like deploy cross-cloud integration applications, create new APIs on top of existing data sources, integrate on-premise applications with cloud services. With Mule Studio -  the user-friendly development tool – you can quickly build these integration applications and deploy to CloudHub with just a few clicks. This guide will help you learn the basics and get started developing your first applications.

Mule Component Bindings


I had the privilege of speaking at the Mule Summit in Chicago a few weeks ago. During my presentation, I covered some key Mule ESB features we leverage at Express Scripts: and Custom Configuration Patterns. Few conference attendees were familiar with these features, so we thought blog posts would help share information about these features with a broader audience. In this post, I’ll focus on . A future post will cover Custom Configuration Patterns.

This tutorial is the first in a series of blog posts that explain how to integrate Mule and Social Media.

Today’s post will focus on connecting to Twitter and sending a tweet (if you don’t know what is read this). Subsequent tutorials will cover:

Complex event processing engines are a natural fit for event driven platforms like Mule. Native   support has been available in Mule since version 3.2 by way of the Drools Module.  The Esper Module now offers an alternate way to leverage CEP in your integration applications.   Esper is a robust, performant, open source, complex event processing engine.  Let’s take a look at how to use with Mule and then see how it compares to ’ CEP support.

Mule Hackathon Cup 2012 v1.0


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.

Real-time Web and Streaming APIs


There was a lot of buzz a few years ago around real-time web and since then it has been bubbling along. I have a financial/enterprise background so real-time has a very different meaning to me; time is measured in microseconds. Web real-time seems to be measured as sub 1 second . My issue with real time web to date is only parts of the web are web-real time.  While the data can be delivered to the browser using push technologies such as comet and web sockets, the vast majority of REST and soap API that provide access to application data still use the HTTP request response model.

That’s starting to change with more public APIs appearing. A streaming API (aka ) works by the client opening a socket, providing some criteria of the data it wants to receive and the server will deliver new data as it is received over the open socket. For those familiar with publish-subscribe models of delivering data, this all sounds familiar.

Run Mule, Run! Mule 3.1 is out


The Mule team is very pleased to announce the general availability of Mule ESB 3.1. This release packs a lot of new shiny awesomeness.

We received loads of great feedback on Mule Connect and the team has been working hard on new improvements. Connectors now have specific XML schemas making it really easy to orchestrate data services between cloud and enterprise applications. This means Cloud Connectors can now be used in flows. For example, to create a new Twitter component for use in a flow use the following:

Twitter your Blog with iBeans


Most websites offer RSS or ATOM feeds for news or updates, and makes it easy to consume these feeds. In this example, I will create a simple object that will read new entries from my blog and publish a summary of them on Twitter. Note that the example assumes that you have iBeans installed.
