I feel a little like George McFly, now...
Trees had to die to get us there by here we are: Mule in Action is now
treeware. And in case you missed it, the making of was here.
Enjoy the reading!
I'm pleased to announce the release of http-safe, a store-and-forward HTTP
gateway plugin for RabbitMQ.
Its goal is to simplify the integration and communication of services over
HTTP by relieving systems from the chore of resending requests when something
went wrong with "the other side".

of delivery callback in order to inform the originating system of the success
or failure of its dispatch request.

To be able to do anything useful, an ESB must be configured with all sorts of
parameters, from endpoint connection URIs to message transformation scripts
to content-based routing definitions. Moreover, ESBs like Mule can host
custom components, which will process messages and perform user-specific
actions on them.
Deploying a new version of an ESB configuration raises the question of
whether it will break anything. How can we build confidence that everything
will be just fine? If unit testing did it for standard software development,
what can it do in the realm of the ESB? Since... (more)
One of the very first CTO-grade decision I had to take in the making of
Snoget was to pick what would become our main transactional persistence
engine. Since we're using Erlang exclusively for our production servers, the
solution seemed easy: use Mnesia. But I settled for PostgreSQL.
At this point, anyone who's been dealing with O/R mapping (like Ted Neward
who said: "Object/relational mapping is the Vietnam of Computer Science"),
should cry fool: Mnesia would offer me persistence without any impedence
mismatch with the application runtime environment and I preferred a SQL
This blog is the formal introduction to the CRaSH console for Mule on which
I've been working for the past month or so. I've decided to interview myself
about it because, hey, if I don't do it, who will?
What is CRaSH for Mule?
It is a shell that is running embedded in Mule and that gives command-line
access to a variety of Mule internal moving parts. It's built thanks to the
excellent CRaSH project, a toolkit built by Julien Viet and sponsored by eXo
Platform, which allows the easy creation of embedded shells.
What can we do with it?
Well, it's easy to find it out. Let's connect ... (more)
