hymad md

it is great , with the help of anypoint platform we can do restful services and more.

2017-10-09

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

API Manager is a component of Anypoint Platform for managing and publishing APIs.

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.

Anypoint Platform by MuleSoft: Powerful API Management Tool

2018-11-20

What I like most is how easy it is to deploy a project using the easy drag and drop feature. This ensures that much is done in less time. Another thing is the flexibility and support for python, JS, Scala, etc. Lastly, their support is very helpful whenever called upon.

Cons

Anypoint Platform is not cheap at all.

Anypoint Platform: APIs Anywhere

2018-08-31

My company uses this platform to maintain some integration services and to publish these to other companies.

Pros

It's a fantastic tool to create APIs or microservices really quickly if you have the rest of your services in the cloud. For example, you have the possibility to create some microservices to connect your Salesforce platform with your Office platform or your ERP. It implements a fantastic and simple user interface to help you in the process. His knowledge base and his blog with the examples that you can find in these are really fantastic.

Cons

At this time my only cons are to move the MuleSoft on-premises processes to the CloudHub because these requires some adaptations to run in Anypoint Platform.

From the cloud we perform the monitors of our ESB, the integration is of another level thanks to Anypoint Platform.

Pros

We are delighted with the use of the integration platform, the connectors are ready to use. The dataweave is excellent with its ESB feature. The watermark concept for great batch processing.

When batch processing is done extensively causes delays, it represents a big problem at the time of integration.
