Exciting news to share! We are launching a new MuleSoft Online Group dedicated to introducing Java Developers to the MuleSoft world.
Think strategy: quieter times are not for resting.
This year global pandemic has affected most businesses, and Infomentum is no exception. At the beginning of the spring lockdown, the uncertainty of the future put most organisations into some level of hibernation. For a short period, our team was not as utilised as usual. What did we do? We focused on what would benefit us in the long run: a new strategy, team training, enhancing our internal processes and knowledge repositories. One of the projects that ticked almost all boxes was the revamp of our internal Centre of Excellence (CoE). What is a CoE you ask? It is a cross-functional team responsible for creating and maintaining a centralised Knowledge Hub that offers API projects' best practices, governance, templates, and much more.
Do you know many MuleSoft developers with MSc in Physics and Medical Engineering? Meet Olga Kepa - an example of how a career can change in a drastic way when you pursue your dream.
Are you in the middle of working out your integration strategy and selecting a suitable platform? It's a serious and long-term commitment, so wouldn't it be great to test a chosen platform first? Validate it by building fully-functioning API integrations for your specific use case?
Testing is a critical part of software development, ensuring early detection of bugs or any other problems within your code. However, for most of us it's the less favorite activity; it feels tedious and often repetitive. Furthermore, creating test for a large block of code can be troublesome, especially for beginners.
API-led integration can propel your organisation to new heights; better customer service, increased efficiency and innovation are only a few of the benefits of a successful initiative.
Unit testing has always been an integral part of software engineering because it ensures that problems in the code are isolated and fixed long before they become an issue in production. With the introduction and adoption of Agile framework, unit testing has changed dramatically because of the test-driven development (TDD) methodology. TDD is a software development strategy in which unit tests are used to drive the development process. In this blog, I explain how to practice TDD and share some tips on how to write great unit tests using MUnit.
The pom.xml file contains the core information about a project and its configuration details including its dependencies, build directory, source directory, test source directory, plugin, goals etc. Maven reads the pom.xml file, then executes the goal.
Notifications could be a very powerful tool to get visibility into business-related events inside your application.
MuleSoft has exposed an API that provides access to Anypoint MQ administrative functionality. For those who are not familiar with Anypoint MQ, it's a multi-tenant, cloud messaging service that enables customers to perform advanced asynchronous messaging scenarios between their applications. Using this API you can perform a series of actions that otherwise would only be accessible through the Anypoint Platform's web interface. And since many organisations prefer to externalise and automate this type of processes using scripts, I would like to explain how to use all four basic CRUD methods (Create, Read, Update and Delete) using this API.
