Anypoint Platform


 

Anytime Platform is an application development solution for organizations that are looking to integrate applications, data sources and devices using application programming interfaces (API). The solution is suitable for industries such as financial services, government, health care, higher education, insurance, telecom and retail.

The Anytime Connector module enables developers to connect software with different applications using pre-built interfaces. Development teams can integrate different applications and define process flows using the visual-mapping feature. The platform also enables users to map and transform data using joins, pivots and filters.

Anytime Platform is suitable for organizations that need to address end-to-end integration issues and are looking for a solution that combines application management, application connection and data management.

The platform consists of REST and SOAP APIs for applications such as Salesforce, Slack, Workday, Microsoft SharePoint, NetSuite and SAP.

Pros

We tried this first when we were in app development. We figured out most of the features right off. We definitely needed something that was drag and drop.

Cons

In the end, we decided it wasn't cost effective for us to develop our own app and we had to outsource it. No complaints, just too time consuming for us.

One can try it

Pros

The ease of getting basic flow's up and running and how quickly you can get solutions to integration requirements solved. Anypoint platform, Exchange, Cloud Hub and the online collaboration components are all fantastic additions to the solution.
Very easy for development because of the drag and drop interface, with many connectors ready to go with simple configuration and settings to get a quick connection to a system and also understand, with a lot of documentation available for the same online.

Cons

It behaves weird at times. A full understanding of the tool is not an easy job as you have so many functionalities embedded
Anypoint Studio is Eclipse based: on some old machine and operating system (linux distros) this could be a pain.

Anypoint Platform Review!

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Value for Money

Pros

The freedom and options to connect any system / component using the Anypoint Platform. Can connect flat files and expose them as a Web Service! The system doing a "GET" using web service will never know what kind of language / platform they're dealing with. It's a consistent look and feel of REST and SOAP.

Cons

Design tools are in Eclipse and require a slight learning curve if you are new to the environment. Because portions of the product are open sourced, updates require careful regression testing.

This was the reason we could do what we did with real AI, machine learning, and hyper connected api's.

Pros

The ESB is the centerpiece of our learning ecosystem. While not having a front end interface and requiring programming (API work), it's been a tremendous efficiency tool for us. If only we used it better!

Cons

It's pretty pricey and the service around it is also costly as that is the main upcharge for businesses who don't have a lot of programmers, etc.

I love Dataweave , because I am from B2B Integration background where Mapping plays a major role and a most time consuming part of the integration. Dataweave provides a great power and there are endless option to achieve complex requirement easily as well as quickly comparable to traditional mapping utilities. I believe, due to this it is going to takeover as future B2B/EDI Integration.

Cons

Although the drag and drop interfaces in Anypoint Studio have improved the overall experience, it still has a few issues that causes crashes or unexpected results in the IDE. You to have to reset the perspective or restart Anypoint Studio sometimes.

Nice bus for connecting multiple applications and data sources via services.

Pros

Very powerful product that allows you to connect various and multiple applications via Application Programming Interfaces, along with conducting data migrations and transformations via the same product.

Cons

It is not for the technically faint-at-heart. This product requires technical developer resources who understand REST web services, etc. to truly make the integration points work.

Versioning done wrong - no way to keep API definitions in a proper SCM like Git
Sharing not enabled properly in our organisation - not sure why but was told it was due to a "limitation"

we can create rest services . we can host the services on premises and cloud. these micro service will help the application to run fast .

Pros

Anypoint Exchange consists of a MuleSoft provided public list of APIs, examples, connectors, and templates that you can use to create applications.
API Manager is a component of Anypoint Platform for managing and publishing APIs.
If you set up your own account on the internet, you are assigned the Organization Administrators role. If your organization uses Anypoint Platform on a private cloud, obtain permissions and roles from the Anypoint Platform administrator for your organization. In the Organization Administrator role, you see and can open API Manager when you log into Anypoint Platform. As Organization Administrator, you can see and manage client applications registered to access your API. Alternatively, you can use the Anypoint Platform command line interface (CLI) to interact with API Manager.

Cons

API Manager,Anypoint Exchange
You can deploy an API implementation to a Mule Runtime that runs on a server, such as CloudHub in the public cloud. You can also deploy to a private cloud or hybrid. A hybrid deployment is an API deployed on a private server but having metadata processed in the public cloud. Regardless of the server location, each server belongs to an environment, such as Design, Test, or Production. Servers are defined in business groups and each business group can have multiple environments.

Few Advantages that Mule has over other products are :-


Mule has a large collection of different connectors to connect and integrate diverse systems. It is said like it can almost connect anything.


Mule is very lightweight and easy to use compared to other esb. Since it is mostly Java based, so, it becomes very easy to use and build custom components. Most important is that, Mule is a pure esb, where other products comes with other functionality and platforms and esb is one of the part of the product. (eg WSO2)


Mule is graphically based unlike most of other esb, where the flows are mostly configured in XML (Apache Camel or Spring integration)


Mule is less expensive compared to most of other products. Even community versions are available, which will not cost you anything.


Mule earlier had a problem of its small size of its community. But nowadays, Mule community is expanding like others.


Mule, as I mentioned is easy to use. for example, if you want to expose a web service and need to do various transformations with payload, you just need to concentrate on your java implementation classes or you Mule flow. Mule will take care of exposing the service to an endpoint and you don't need to write any code for that.
It also has wide range of transformer that will take care of transformation of your payload and also other functionality like orchestration, routing etc and will be easy for you to implement


There are more or less other advantages, you can explore more to get it .
More or less choosing an esb depends on your requirement and budget.

Pros

Data Mapping is the feature i like most in this software, there are many feature which are as follow are the best for my project.
Debugging suppor,APIkit
RAML Support

Cons

RAML Support,
we can import RAML files for your APIs that are managed in the Anypoint Platform by the API Manager and keep them in sync with the platform.While working with a RAML file, you can also view an embedded interactive API Console that's automatically built from the resources and methods described in your RAML.Handle complex data mappings and transformations through the Transform Message component, that leverages the powerful DataWeave language. This component allows you to create your transformations both through a simple drag and drop visual interface or by coding in DataWeave to unleash all of the language's potential.

There are various of benefits of Anypoint Platform to use in Integrataion project.

1. Integration Platform: Anypoint Platform is a hybrid integration platform provided by MuleSoft which is used to build application network very easily, structurally and smartly with proper and neat documentation.

2. API-Led Connectivity: Anypoint Platform implements API-Led Connectivity approach to make application network Reusable, Loosely Coupled and more Govern.

3. Layered Architecture: Anypoint Platform follows Layered architecture style in the integration based project in which for each external system we create an API on top of it to expose their data. This API is called as System API and this API is not used normally by any user directly.
Then if required, to merge the two or more than two external system together, we again need to create an API on top of them to expose their data together. This API is called as Process API which is more process oriented.
And then finally we come up with Experienced API on top of Process API to expose process oriented data so that the end user could get the data from different external systems. So you can see how Anypoint Platform smartly uses Layered architecture style to build out network applications easily.

4. CloudHub: This is perhaps the most relevant benefits of Anypoint Platform according to me. Anypoint Platform provides various ways to deploy your integration applications and APIs both on Cloud computing environment and On-prem.

5. Open Source: It is an open source integration platform which means to use this technology to integrate or connect any applications we do not need to use any license software. We can download it from the internet all free of cost. It is Awesome!

Pros

There are many things to like about Anypoint Platform. Few of them I would like to highlight:
1. Integration Platform: Anypoint Platform is a hybrid integration platform provided by MuleSoft which is used to build application network very easily, structurally and smartly with proper documentation.
2. API-Led Connectivity: Anypoint Platform implements API-Led Connectivity approach to make application network Reusable, Loosely Coupled and more Govern.

So you can see how Anypoint Platform smartly uses Layered architecture style to build out network applications eaisly.
4. CloudHub: This is perhaps the most relevant benefits of Anypoint Platform according to me. Anypoint Platform provides various ways to deploy your integration applications and APIs both on Cloud computing environment and on premises

The one which I like most in MuleSoft Anypoint Studio is Connectors. For every update they are fixing the bugs and coming up with new connectors which makes developers job easy to connect with multiple end point systems with in no time. I should say about DevKit , if a developer is not satisfied with the existing connector then he can develop his own connector to fulfill his/her requirement.

Cons

To be frank the thing which I dint like in Mulesoft is, it will not provide support for clustered environment in AWS Servers. I know the root cause because they have their Cloud environment which we call its as CloudHub. I suffered a lot for setting up clustered environment in AWS environment.
