Every business has unique integration needs. As new applications are developed, there’s a clear need to connect them with existing legacy system data.
MuleSoft is the world’s leading integration platform for SOA, SaaS, and APIs. MuleSoft’s integration offering will give you the power to drive a connected business: increase efficiencies through robust data connectivity and system interoperability across multiple endpoints. It provides exceptional business agility to companies by connecting applications, data, and devices, both on-premises and in the cloud with an API-led approach.
MuleSoft development has many benefits with the key benefits being:
MuleSoft provides a development environment called Mule Studio, which is based on Eclipse. It integrates with other commonly used tools such as Maven and GitHub. Using Mule Studio, you can develop your use-cases/flows with a graphical drag-and-drop editor (or edit the flow’s XML file if you insist).
MuleSoft provides hundreds of components that come built-in with Mule Studio. It has pretty much everything you think you’ll need for integration development:
Message Sources – endpoints – HTTP, FTP, TCP, UDP, File, and Database…
Routers – aggregators, splitters, round-robin…
Scopes – Flows, sub-flows, for-each, a-synchronous…
Built-in transformers – convert XML, JSON, File, Byte Array, Object, and String…
Dynamic transformer – Anypoint DataMapper dynamically converts between flat (CSV, fixed-width file, Excel) and structured (XML, JSON, POJO objects, key-value maps) formats.
Connectors – Amazon, Facebook, Google products, Sharepoint, MongoDB, Salesforce and Twitter to name a few.
The list is long, I know, but just in case you are missing something you need, it’s a good thing that MuleSoft is open-source.
MuleSoft’s components and features are easily extended, and in case you didn’t find a connector you need (for example) you can develop one. MuleSoft has a community website that provides everything from downloads and examples to user guides and tutorials.
