Connect your enterprise to a wide range of SaaS platforms, Open APIs, and social networks quickly and without difficulty. Through step-by-step instructions and numerous real-world examples, this concise guide shows you how to seamlessly integrate the external services you need with Mule ESB and its powerful Cloud Connect toolset.
You'll learn how to use service-specific connectors for many popular APIs including Salesforce, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Twilio through easy-to-learn abstractions. If Mule doesn't have a connector for the resource you need, you'll learn how to build your own. You'll discover how easy it is to reach beyond the enterprise firewall for a host of Internet resources.

  • Discover the advantages of using Mule Cloud Connect over typical web service clients and protocols

Simple Arguments Instead of using URL query and path parameters, any basic arguments to the API are represented as attributes on the operation that map message payload and properties directly to API arguments. Attributes can be optional or mandatory and can provide content assisted values for enumerations and default values for properties that are not specified. The following example uses the find-nearby-pois-osm operation, which represents the

    subject; private String content; private Style style; private List products; private List keywords; ... } Any custom classes like this are automatically deconstructed and reconstructed as com‐ plex types within the schemas themselves, enabling them to be defined easily as child elements of the operation. As you can see in Example 2-6, the topic class is now constructed directly using XML via the getsatisfaction:topic element. Any simple properties of the class (as docu‐ mented

They allow you to customize and better control the behavior of a failed connection, by specifying a number of criteria such as: • The type of exception • The number and frequency of reconnection attempts • The notifications generated, and more In order to configure this functionality, Mule provides a set of three reconnection strategies. Each reconnection strategy can be configured as a child element of a con‐ nector’s global config declaration. The following sections detail how to

For a SOAP-based service, it requires you to build the contents of the HTTP POST yourself, including the SOAP:Envelope and any WS-* content. Example 1-1 shows a very simple Java snippet for constructing a simple client for a RESTful service using Java’s HTTP packages. Example 1-1. RESTful Java client with URL URL url = new
