Mule ESB Overview

What is Mule ESB?

Anypoint Studio
Eclipse-based graphical designer for intuitive visual mapping of complex integration flows.
Flexible ‘two-way’ editing functionality that allows developers to utilize graphical development tools while still providing full access to review and modify the underlying XML configuration files.

Graphical Data Mapper
For rapid transformation of data between any combination of XML, Excel, Java POJO, CSV, JSON and Java Map / List of Maps. Developer productivity features to dramatically shorten the development/test cycle

Seamless integration with CloudHub
Simplified deployment and management for Standalone Mule instances, and deployment to cloud by hosting in the MuleSoft CloudHub environment.

Mule Enterprise Management Console (MMC)
Developers using Mule ESB and MMC will have a web-based message flow debugger at their disposal, allowing them to quickly pinpoint and resolve configuration issues by auditing real-time message flows, message payloads, headers, the timing, and more. If the service flow isn't behaving the way as expected at development time, users can quickly turn on the auditor and figure out which component is at fault.

Intelligent alerting
Define alerts on resource utilization of services, service-level events, or message payloads. Receive notifications when critical metrics cross thresholds. Escalate alerts or trigger corrective actions using custom alert scripts.

Service flow debugging
Audit message traffic and associated properties on both the inbound and outbound sides of services. Quickly pinpoint and resolve Mule ESB configuration issues. Turn service level auditing on and off to capture just enough data to diagnose an issue without impacting performance.

Performance diagnostics and tuning
View performance data (e.g., threads, memory and CPU utilization) at the service level. Detect performance bottlenecks down to individual thread and object level. Change resource allocation (e.g., thread pool size) at runtime to optimize service performance.

Fine grained ESB control
Start, stop, and restart ESB resources individually at the server, service, and end-point levels. Remotely access, update or replace any file or configuration on a Mule ESB server. View logs, server and cluster configuration information.

Business Events Tracking
Mule ESB provides an extensible framework for capturing and viewing business KPI’s as they flow through your integration infrastructure.

Mule ESB and BPM
Mule ships with a lightweight process manager that seamlessly integrates with the Mule runtime. Additionally, Mule can integrate with any BPM engine via SOAP or REST web services.

Taking The Donkey’s Work Out Of Integration

Mule ESB is lightweight and works across platforms. In addition, it is popular: the Mule open source project has a community of over 150,000 members. Most of these members are developers, who constantly grow the product using mainstream IDE environments such as Eclipse, Maven, Spring, and Ant. In addition, you can use the company’s CloudHub solution to integrate offline components of your IT asset inventory with their cloud-based counterparts.

Mule ESB is a heavyweight approach to application integration

Pros

Mule ESB is based on an open-source ethos, and has many out-of-the-box connectors which can be used as an integration accelerator

Cons

I think that the ESB pattern is becoming a legacy approach to application integration

Enterprise applications are changing, along with the requirements for developing, deploying, integrating and managing them. A change in application infrastructure is needed to address the new demands on applications. There is a growing acknowledgement that the traditional JEE 3-tier architecture does not work for the new generation of applications. The line between application and integration is fading as composite applications are becoming more widespread and the number of SaaS and web API services increases exponentially. Today's developers and IT organizations need an enterprise SOA solution that is powerful enough to support the most demanding back-end enterprise systems, yet can seamlessly integrate with the next generation of applications on both sides of the firewall.

Mulesoft products provide the necessary secure enterprise connectivity to back end systems while also embracing the new protocols and architecture of the web. Our lightweight and flexible infrastructure means that you can deploy our components anywhere, in any environment (standalone, application server, on premise, hosted/cloud) to provide the necessary connectivity and service mediation. Our flexibility also means you can leverage existing technology investments without having to replace everything with a heavy “stack.” Additionally the Mule runtime of Anypoint Platform also provides the simplest approach to integrating SaaS applications.

Mule runtime, when deployed as an ESB, takes the complexity out of integration, providing connectivity to a wide range of technologies and creating services that can be reused across your organization. It is lightweight and flexible, adapting to your existing infrastructure. Mule’s connectivity services support legacy, non-service enabled assets, modernized SOA-enabled assets, and new SaaS applications living outside the firewall. It also provides end-to-end visibility, performance configurability and high availability into your SOA infrastructure.
