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.
MuleSoft Connectors abstract and facilitate integrations with third-party APIs. In many cases, you can use an existing certified MuleSoft connector from Exchange, such as Workday or Salesforce, to connect to a service provider. However, when no connector is available for a specific Web service, the easiest way to consume the service from your Mule app is to use the Web Service Consumer connector but it's not always the case.
Well, that functionality has now been released.
On July 29th, MuleSoft's Crowd release went live. It seemed like a long wait, but it was finally time to put my hands on the new Anypoint Exchange 2.0 and the completely new component, Design Center. Now that I've had a few days to take a look around at all of the new functionality, I'm rounding up my highlights below.
