MuleSoftESB,API and MicroServices
MuleSoft an IT company is a provider of integration software for connecting applications, data and APIs across on-premises and cloud computing environments. MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform provides agility by integrating with Saas applications, service-oriented architectures(SOA) and also with existing legacy applications with help of APIs.
MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform provides deifferent tools and services, some of them include:
API manager is an API management tool that helps firms to handle end users, traffic, service-level agreements (SLAs) and API security including API gateway, API Policy Manager and Contract Manager.
It is a graphical designing platform for building, editing and debugging integrations.
It is a developer portal which provides interactive documents, tutorials and code snippets. In addition, it also includes MuleSoft’s Portal Designer, Developer Onramp and Access Controller tools.
It is a tool which makes users to keep track of APi metrics like performance and usage. It also includes visualization tools, such as API Dashboards and API Charts.
CloudHub a multi-tenant integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that integrates SaaS applications and on-premises applications includes a hybrid deployment option, disaster recovery and high availability.
Mule ESB is an environment which allows developers to integrate SaaS and on-premises applications with the help of pre-built connectors, integration templates and drag-and-drop tools.
Mule Enterprise Management::
A management tool for servers, workflows and endpoints.
MuleSoft has its head office in San Francisco and it was founded by Ross Mason in 2006. As per Mulesoft the “mule” in its name came from drudgery or donkey work of data integration which Mulesoft platform will make to escape from and as mules are a hybrid combination of donkeys and horses, Mulesoft will deliver the strength of a donkey to pull the heavy workload, and get the things done at the speed of a racehorse.
Major cloud providers like Cisco, Salesforce and SAP extended their support to Mulesoft and it also received financial strength from New Enterprise Associates, Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, Morgenthaler Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Bay Partners and others.
Key concepts of Mule:
It works in a way by answering to events those being begun by external resources. Usually this follows the concept of EDA commonly known as event driven architecture.
In its initial level, applications of Mule receive and process events using an umpteen number of message processors. These processors are then set in a flow.
Here gaining fine cognizance on the basic architecture of Flow is crucial to understanding of Mule. And these flow charts contain a range of message processors which receive and process them. In addition to this, they do contain various linked flows that perform the integration necessary for use.
It is construct through which you can integrate diverse individual elements for managing the receipt as well as for processing and routing of a message. And for building a complete application you can integrate many flows together and deploy on premise, in the cloud, on Mule or another application server.
In the initial level, flows are a sequence of message processing events that pass through a range of processors. Basic units that support in forming the flows are known as elements in XML flow representation and building blocks (that represents a component, message source or a processor) in studio’s graphical representation.
Message Sources :
Messages of mule processes are called events, that are moved from externals of resource to Mule. For instance, a message can be initiated by event with a request from a user or minor changes of data in a database or with the creation new ID in a SaaS app.
First building blocks of Flows receives the message requested and places them in a queue for processing. The message source in Mule receives the messages from external sources for activating the exclusion of flow. Few of the message sources in Mule include Anypoint Connectors that provide link to the specific external sources via protocals like HTTP, FTP, SMTP or Salesforce.com, Twitter, or MongoDB interfaces.
Message processors :
Transformers of Mule support in exchanging of data between the nodes to covert data in the format that other apps can easily understand. Furthermore, it also supports content enrichment that lets you to get the data during processing or message attachment.
In addition to the above you can also use Mule Expression Language within message processors of your flow to extract the info and guide Mule to make processing decisions.
