visualizer

At the end of June, MuleSoft released an Anypoint Platform tool that I am so excited about, called the Anypoint Visualizer. As the name implies, the Visualizer provides visibility into your application network, giving you additional insight into your APIs, including:

Overview

One of the benefits of being a consultant is having the opportunity to work with a lot of different clients, many just beginning their journey with MuleSoft and API Led Enablement. In this article, I will share some of the observations and findings that I have seen that have enabled this journey to be more successful.

Overview

Although the SOA and OSB Maven artifacts provided in the 12.2.1.2 release are much improved from what was released in 12.2.1.1, this topic provides some additional tweeks needed to get an OSB project to build and deploy with Maven.

Reflecting On The MuleSoft Dallas API Workshop

MuleSoft’s Dallas API Workshop was an educational and enlightening day dedicated to exploring the value and potential of APIs and harnessing the power of API-led development. Throughout the intervening week, we’ve found ourselves returning again and again to the day’s theme to extract and absorb every last insight. One can hardly overstate what APIs represent for the future of business agility or their centrality to digital transformation.

With MuleSoft Connect right around the corner, now is a good time to develop your strategy for sessions and workshops to attend.  The workshops, as noted below, require pre-registration, so be sure to sign up sooner rather than later so you won’t miss out.

To help you develop your strategy, AVIO has created a list of top 3 sessions and workshops to attend. Our focus for these picks is on learning about the new tools and features, along with expanding your MuleSoft knowledge.

We’ve been considering how the principles of Agile software development can be applied more broadly, and what insights they can provide into organizational agility. In the first two parts of this series we considered, respectively, the first and second of The Agile Manifesto’s four value statements.

Customer Collaboration

We come now to the third:  We value customer collaboration over contract negotiation.

One of the biggest challenges for any project manager is knowing what work has been done and what work remains throughout a project. This is no easy task for the typical SOA/Business Process Management (BPM) project involving multiple system integrations and a large user base.

I recently ran into a rather worrisome situation where my Admin Server suddenly lost connection with my SOA Managed Server.  Luckily my users were blissfully unaffected and looked at me strangely when I expressed my alarm that Enterprise Manager couldn’t see any of the composites.  They said they’d never met the Enterprise Manager and that they weren’t aware the company made composites.  At that point, sadly, I realized I was on my own.

Parametric roles have been in the Oracle BPM product in releases prior to 11g. Although a portion of this powerful feature has made it back into the product in the 11.1.1.5 feature pack, until this feature supports the use of LDAP group assignments I believe that it will be of limited use. The technique described here will get you around this current limitation and it works for all releases of Oracle BPM 11g.

Many thanks to Arun Pareek for his insight on Oracle BPM 11g parametric roles.
