Pages: 140

Connect your enterprise to a wide range of SaaS platforms, Open APIs, and social networks quickly and without difficulty. Through step-by-step instructions and numerous real-world examples, this concise guide shows you how to seamlessly integrate the external services you need with Mule ESB and its powerful Cloud Connect toolset.

You’ll learn how to use service-specific connectors for many popular APIs—including Salesforce, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Twilio—through easy-to-learn abstractions. If Mule doesn’t have a connector for the resource you need, you’ll learn how to build your own. You’ll discover how easy it is to reach beyond the enterprise firewall for a host of Internet resources.

  • Discover the advantages of using Mule Cloud Connect over typical web service clients and protocols
  • Learn how Cloud Connectors eliminate the need to understand the underlying API of each service
  • Get started with the latest real-time technologies, including REST, WebHooks, and Streaming APIs
  • Integrate OAuth secure APIs and understand their role in authorization and information sharing

Comments about oreilly Getting Started with Mule Cloud Connect:

Good introduction to working with APIs with coverage of OAuth and building you're own connectors. Decent range of API how-tos. Book is focused on the consumption of APIs.

Would be good to get a view and how to for publishing APIs on the Mule platform. Some topics need more depth, such as working with DevKit to build custom connectors, dealing with custom authentication schemes and anomalies in existing APIs

Would definitely recommend. Great guide to making it easier to connect to many APIs
