About this Book
Mule, as the preeminent, open source integration platform, provides a framework for implementing integration solutions. The book will give you the tools for using Mule effectively. It’s not a user guide; Mule’s comprehensive user guide is available online already. Instead, it’s a review of Mule’s main moving parts and features put in action in real-world contexts. After a little bit of history and some fundamentals of configuring Mule, we’ll walk you through the family of components that you’ll use in your projects. We’ll then review some runtime concerns such as exception handling, transactions, security, and monitoring. Then we’ll delve into advanced subjects such as programming with Mule’s API, tuning, and working with complementary technologies such as BPM and CEP.
This book is primarily targeted at developers who want to solve integration challenges using the Mule platform. It’s also useful for architects and managers who are evaluating Mule as an integration platform or ESB solution. Additionally, system administrators tasked with supporting Mule instances will find this book, part 2 in particular, of value.
