Mule ESB is an integration technology which can connect different applications. Mule is an open source integration framework consisting of different Connectors which can easily integrate our applications.

Mule is a lightweight integration framework. Mule ESB includes powerful capabilities including REST, SOAP, JMS, Salesforce, Cloudhub, RAML, Http, Datasource, Dataweave, Java, and MongoDB.

MuleSoft Anypoint Studio is a user-friendly IDE where we can easily drag Connectors from the Mule Palette.

In this article, I am going to show you how to create a Mule ESB Sample Application. For this, we need the below requirements.
