Oracle APEX: Sending big texts to modal popups

By Rene Mikami on Jun 8, 2020

In my experience, when working with Interactive Grid, most of the times, we need to open a modal popup to interact with selected records (single or multi selection). For example, let say we have an Interactive Grid listing some records and you want a button which bulk updates all selected rows with the same value.

MuleSoft TDD with the use of MUnit

By Spiros Pappas, Senior MuleSoft Consultant on May 20, 2020

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.

How to use MuleSoft Anypoint MQ admin API

By Spiros Pappas, Senior MuleSoft Consultant on Mar 17, 2020

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.

Are post-it's enough?

Recently a few of our team members attended Celonis SuperFluid Tour in London, where we found that post-it notes and a whiteboard are still one of their biggest competitors. Celonis, for those unaware, offer a solution, powered by process mining technology that empowers companies to visualise their processes, thus providing insights to which of these can be improved. It can come as a surprise, that in the age of digital transformation, many organisations are satisfied with getting the room's opinion during a whiteboard and/or post-it note session as the best process discovery technique.

How to consume RPC-style web service in Mule 4

By Alessandro Toscano on Jul 1, 2019

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.

How to solve the challenge of centralised logging with nxlog

By Simon Yuen on Feb 21, 2019

At Infomentum we have successfully moved towards a centralised logged infrastructure where systems, application, network and security logs are parsed and made available in one central point. Using components such as Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana, our logging infrastructure provides us the ability to apply filters to perform queries and basic trends analysis or counts.

One of the challenges we faced was shipping Windows Server logs from a logfile onto Logstash’s syslog listener, and we found a tool that does exactly that - nxlog-ce-2.9.1716
