where Java geeks meet on the island.

July 2009 VIJUG meeting – Mule in Action

After a bit of a break with life keeping me busy elsewhere, VIJUG is back with another great meeting and presentation. In the hopefully hot July David Dossot, the author of the book Mule in Action, will join us from Vancouver and talk about the Enterprise Service Bus system Mule.

A workhorse named Mule presented by David Dossot

An Enterprise Service Bus—or ESB—lets a developer exploit an enterprise messaging service without writing a lot of custom code. With its recent 2.0 release, Mule has become the most widely used open source ESB, providing a viable alternative to expensive commercial options. As the basis for a standards-based SOA implementation, Mule provides easy integration with popular Java-based software such as Spring and JBoss. Mule is designed to support the messaging patterns defined by Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf. And because it’s open source, developers can readily customize Mule to meet specific needs.

This presentation will lead the audience through a four phase journey with Mule:

  • Introduction, to discover the origins of Mule,
  • Exploration, to dig in its innermosts,
  • Construction: to discuss related development practices,
  • In Action: to put everything together in the light of a few examples.

This presentation will not be a tutorial and will address both Mule newbies and Mule users.

David Dossot has worked as a software engineer and architect for more than 14 years. He has been using Mule since 2005 in a variety of different contexts and is the project despot of the JCR Transport and a member of the Mule Community Committee. He is the project lead of NxBRE, an open source business rules engine for the .NET platform (selected for O’Reilly’s Windows Developer Power Tools). He is also a judge for the Jolt Product Excellence Awards and has written several articles for SD Magazine. He holds a Production Systems Engineering Diploma from ESSTIN.
