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.
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.
