The first step to managing your APIs is to catalog them. I've written before about the importance of the API Catalog, both for consumers (in an API Developer Portal) and also for administrators to keep track of the APIs which they are managing.
Software as a Service Customer Relationship Management (Saas CRM) is a software usage model where a vendor licenses a certain software system to be utilized as a service on demand through time subscription or pay as you go.
It is always recommended to use Spring properties with Mule, to externalize any configuration parameters. For example, the Acme APIfrom my previous post connects to an external database. So instead of hard-coding connectivity options inside my application code, I would create a properties file.
The number of APIs is clearly growing rapidly – but it is increasingly difficult for directories to keep up, and many of these APIs are private or semi-private. Some clear use-cases for APIs have emerged and many companies are combining them to suit their business.
Circuit Breaker is a pattern that wraps the resource and monitors for errors. Initially it is in closed state and passes all calls to the wrapped resource. When the failures reaches a certain threshold, the circuit moves to open state where it returns error to the caller without actually calling the wrapped resource.
Here is WildFly application server System V Initial Script that I quickly put together for a Centos 6 virtual machine. Use it at your own risk, don’t call me if something goes wrong, because I assume that you are an experienced Web Ops or Sys Admin and you definitely know what you are doing.
This article includes a lengthy mapping on how the SharePoint 2010 server-side customization can be mapped to SP 2013 App Model. The full list is included in the article.
A common integration scenario is a single message needs to be sent through multiple routes.
It needs to be routed through the CRM to create the client, to marketing for leads, and finally passed to provisioning and stock systems so they can work their magic as well.
We've just released the v2.2.0 of the UltraESB. The release fixes some defects related to classloading from deployment units, and also introduces a few changes to the public API to make the ESB API more user friendly and intuitive.
The Spring framework 3 provides an annotation @ExceptionHandler that can be used to intercept uncaught/unhandled exceptions in request mapped functions in controllers. This approach is ideal as it helps us reuse and centralize exception/error handling in Spring MVC/REST controllers.
APItools provides a proxy layer that enables tracking, control and analysis of traffic going to and from the APIs used by your Apps. The system means you can transform inbound and outbound calls to an API without having to rewrite your app.
For a long time I thought that was impossible to query the SOA composite instance audit trail directly from database. Several references on internet said that only SOA Management APIs could understand the format in which this information is stored into SOA Dehydration Store.
Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Enterprise Integration Zone (Apr. 4 to Apr. 10). Here they are, in order
of popularity:1. Services, Microservices, Nanoservices... oh my!
So microservices as they appear...
With Mule’s December release we introduced the new batch module. We received feedback about it and we even have some CloudHub users happily using it in production! However, we know that the journey of Batch has just begun and for the Early Access release of Mule 3.5 we added a bunch of improvements.
This article will outline the the basic control flow patterns as defined by vdAtHKB03. We will then analyze what patterns have limited support due to restrictions imposed by the BPMN2 process specification as detailed in BPM-06-22.
While developing flows with a recent Mule ESB there is a big chance you will make use of MEL in your configuration. Although this feature has added great benefits while developing Mule flows it sometimes drives me crazy.
This article covers a WSDL for a web service in which the target namespace and the service address were identical, and put a Mule web service proxy in front of the web service exposing the WSDL, not only the port address of the web service endpoint were rewritten, but also the target namespace.
The rabbit is out of the hat: I'm indeed working on a new book. It's called "RabbitMQ Essentials" and is published by PackT Publishing. Yes, you're reading right, after Mule, it's now RabbitMQ's turn! Clearly, I'm specializing in writing about animal-named technologies.
So microservices as they appear from Martin’s & James’s article is pretty much service orientation without some of the bad misconception that tied into the SOA moniker like WS*, ESBs as a must, etc., perhaps that’s a good enough reason for a new name but personally I doubt it.
How quickly can you enable OAuth on an API and allow for client applications to be rapidly built for them? With the new OAuth 2.0 policy that is now available with the Anypoint Platform for APIs, the answer is no more than five minutes!
This post is unique. It provides a roadmap to enable you to add security to an existing WCF application. It presents to applications, the server-side WCF expense application, and also the WPF client application that makes WCF service calls.
After two great APISTRAT events last year, the first European event in Amsterdam kicked things of this year – and duly delivered another great few days of content and discussions. The tweet stream says in all on how engaged people were: the keynotes and sessions just got better an better.
Well, you probably know my thoughts on cloud, PaaS, iPaaS and the like. In short, there’s a lot of hype around it, unscrupulous vendors, and some awesome magic involved. But there is some truth to it when you live in reality.
As some of you may know, ECF's implementation of OSGi Remote Services has support for asynchronous proxies.
