Get started with Anypoint Platform™ to build APIs and integrations, and gain skills to become a MuleSoft Certified Developer. In the first part of the course, you use Anypoint Platform to discover, design, build, deploy, manage, and govern APIs. In the second part, you focus on using Mule 4 and Anypoint Studio™ to build applications for use as API implementations and integrations.

Skills Gained

  • Build an application network using API-led connectivity and Anypoint Platform.
  • Use Anypoint Platform to discover, design, build, deploy, manage, and govern APIs.
  • Connect to databases, files, web services, SaaS applications, JMS queues, and more.
  • Add application logic, handle errors, and transform data using DataWeave.
  • Structure applications to facilitate development and deployment.
  • Handle batch data processing.

Who Can Benefit

This course is for developers and architects who want to get hands-on experience using Anypoint Platform to build APIs and integrations. It prepares you to take the MuleSoft Certified Developer - Level 1 exam and includes two exam attempts.

Prerequisites

  • Experience with an object-oriented language
  • A basic understanding of data formats such as XML, CSV, and JSON
  • A basic understanding of typical integration technologies such as HTTP, JMS, JDBC, REST, and SOAP

Course Outline

Introducing application networks and API-led connectivity

  • Explain what an application network is and its benefits
  • Describe how to build an application network using API-led connectivity
  • Explain what web services and APIs are
  • Make calls to secure and unsecured APIs

Introducing Anypoint Platform

  • Describe the benefits of Anypoint Platform and MuleSoft’s approach to be successful with it
  • Describe the role of each component in building application networks
  • Navigate Anypoint Platform
  • Locate APIs and other assets needed to build integrations and APIs in Anypoint Exchange

Designing APIs

  • Define APIs with RAML, the Restful API Modeling Language
  • Mock APIs to test their design before they are built
  • Make APIs discoverable by adding them to the private Anypoint Exchange
  • Create public API portals for external developers

Building APIs

  • Use Anypoint Studio to build, run, and test Mule applications
  • Use a connector to connect to databases
  • Use the graphical DataWeave editor to transform data
  • Create RESTful interfaces for applications from RAML files
  • Connect API interfaces to API implementations
  • Synchronize changes to API specifications between Anypoint Studio and Anypoint Platform

Deploying and managing APIs

  • Describe the options for deploying Mule applications
  • Deploy Mule applications to CloudHub
  • Use API Manager to create and deploy API proxies
  • Use API Manager to restrict access to API proxies

Accessing and modifying Mule events

  • Log event data
  • Debug Mule applications
  • Read and write event properties
  • Write expressions with the DataWeave expression language
  • Create variables

Structuring Mule applications

  • Create applications composed of multiple flows and subflows
  • Pass events between flows using asynchronous queues
  • Encapsulate global elements in separate configuration files
  • Specify application properties in a separate properties file and use them in the application
  • Describe the purpose of each file and folder in a Mule project
  • Define and manage application metadata

Consuming web services

  • Consume web services that have an API (and connector) in Anypoint Exchange
  • Consume RESTful web services
  • Consume SOAP web services
  • Pass parameters to SOAP web services using the Transform Message component
  • Transform data from multiple services to a canonical format

Controlling event flow

  • Multicast events
  • Route events based on conditions
  • Validate events

Handling errors

  • Handle messaging errors at the application, flow, and processor level>
  • Handle different types of errors, including custom errors
  • Use different error scopes to either handle an error and continue execution of the parent flow or propagate an error to the parent flow
  • Set the success and error response settings for an HTTP Listener
  • Set reconnection strategies for system errors

Writing DataWeave transformations

  • Write DataWeave expressions for basic XML, JSON, and Java transformations
  • Write DataWeave transformations for complex data structures with repeated elements
  • Define and use global and local variables and functions
  • Use DataWeave functions
  • Coerce and format strings, numbers, and dates
  • Define and use custom data types
  • Call Mule flows from DataWeave expressions
  • Store DataWeave scripts in external files

Triggering flows

  • Read and write files
  • Trigger flows when files are added, created, or updated
  • Trigger flows when new records are added to a database table
  • Schedule flows to run at a certain time or frequency
  • Persist and share data in flows using the Object Store
  • Publish and consume JMS messages

Processing records

  • Process items in a collection using the For Each scope
  • Process records using the Batch Job scope
  • Use filtering and aggregation in a batch step
