Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Enterprise Integration Zone (Feb. 7 to Feb. 13). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Managing Configurations with Apache Commons Configuration

When building long running applications you are likely to run into a number of requirements related to configurations. Instead of writing your own code it is a much better idea to use Apache Commons Configuration which provides this capability.

2. Fabric8, JBoss Fuse, and Apache Karaf Versions

We're very excited about fabric8 being completely poly-container; so we can use fabric8 to provision and manage Karaf, Tomcat, Wildfly & vertx containers; stand alone JVMs along with working great with docker, OpenShift and jclouds - all with a lovely hawtio console for everything!

3. Marvel's Superheroic REST API

Recently Marvel comics released a REST api that allows developers to access comic book characters and their associated comics and stories. I know how cool is this! This post will take you through some sample code and show you how to get information back from their API.

4. Unit testing with Mule ESB 3.4 Enterprise Edition

There is a big chance that when you are using the Mule ESB EE as your ESB implementation and you are creating functional/unit tests you sooner or later will need a license on your test classpath to be able to run Mule in your unit tests. Luckily this isn’t very hard to accomplish.
