Once upon a time, there was a Microsoft SQL Server named DB007 running in a data center in an enterprise organization in Toronto. DB007 was sad. It doesn’t get much attention due to the high demand in the SAAS based database solution. Everyone is excited talking about the cloud-based solution, NoSQL, data lakes, etc. However very few people considering storing data into DB007.
Plekton Labs Inc. is happy to sponsor and organize the webinar – Introduction to the Salsforce.com Platform
We are very excited to announce that we are going to arrange a webinar as part of our regular community workshop, on December 19, 2019 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm.Plekton Labs Inc.
Speaker: Arijit Roy, Solution Architect
A webinar could be the best way to reach your target group. One can have a direct contact and interaction to the resource person and the target group without spending travelling time and money. Plekton Labs designed the community workshops and events to develop talents, transform the mind set by bringing the tech leaders and the community together.
Why you should join!
The world has seen a large-scale digital transformation in recent years. While many different sectors have moved on with the times, others have lagged far behind. This is especially true when it comes to the supply and logistics sector. It is ironic how the areas that depend on and make use of data the most are unable to manage, access and distribute the data effectively.
Data complexity is a major issue in logistics and supply chain management. The sheer volume of data can be overwhelming. Whether dealing with stocks, bills, accounts or inventories, businesses often have no idea how to efficiently handle their data. This can be a major problem as data or information means everything nowadays. Instead, the data is stored up and almost impossible to access.
On the other hand, data complexity is actually a double-edged sword. The data can and should be used to the business’s advantage. Integration can change businesses and their customers can interact with each other using this data. This is where the API-led approach provides real-time, two-way connectivity, accessibility, and communication. This in turn, can revolutionize the world of logistics which depends wholly on reliable and intuitive data.
What is API-Led Connectivity?
The API-led connectivity approach defines an operating model that can help businesses systematically arrange their assets. It is an organized way of linking data with applications through multipurpose APIs. The approach allows and encourages decentralizing access to data. This can lower the dependence and workload of the IT department.
Running a business is not an easy task. Especially considering the numerous logs and cross-checks required for a particular product or business item. With the inception of digitization techniques, businesses are focusing more and more to bring and integrate technological advantages. Digitization has essentially made various business tasks a lot easier as well as brought a notable efficiency and fast pace to business models.
However, the business paradigm is not limited to one functional group or division. Several functional groups work together seamlessly to achieve business goals. As a result, the application of digitization techniques is not limited to IT departments only. Rather the techniques are implemented across multiple platforms.
Imagine yourself as a service agent for retail giants like Amazon or Alibaba. What is the first thing you notice? Customer queries and service demands. Handling such a huge load of queries makes the work even more difficult. And that results in lack of customer retention.
What is it?
It’s easier to get customers than keep the customers. Customer retention can only be ensured through proper customer service. But how to do that?
The energy sector is all about improving the processes that aid in efficient energy production and consumption. This in turn requires constant changes in the way data is managed and accessed. And this is where technology plays a key role: IT is needed by the energy and utilities providers because they depend on constant deployment, integration and implementation. Another important factor is the access, analysis and real-time processing of data. There is a continuous need for improved processes to deliver these facilities in the most cost-effective way in order to reach business objectives. This is where APIs (Application Program Interface) come in handy.
In MULE 4 when a event is processed Messaging errors happens within the flow when there is some kind of processing issue and the flow execution stops. This post explains how messaging errors are handled and how the error objects are created when a Messaging Error occurs. These Error Objects and are handled with error handler. Each error handler contains one or more error handler scopes. Each error scope can contain many number of event processors.
This short tutorial discusses how the objects in a Mule event change when an external source is called through the flow. A Mule event consists of Mule message, attributes, payload and variables. The tutorial is explained with parent and child flow respectively.
Remember those old days, when you need to add the correlationId as a prefix in each and every log messages in Mule 3 just to keep track of an individual HTTP request in your Mule API? Those days are just gone. So does the pain of extra Muley works. Because it is automatically done for you by Mule 4.
We will need appropriate tools and proper environment set up to work with MuleSoft. This writing describes the components and sets up the environment needed to build and run the program.
- JDK (Java Development Kit) version 8
- Anypoint Studio
JDK (Java Development Kit)
JDK is a package of tools which is needed to develop java-based software programs. Oracle provides free JDK to download. We will have an additional tutorial for downloading and installing JDK. For interested readers here is the link to install JDK. We will use version 8 in our environment.
In MuleSoft we will use the Anypoint Platform and write RAML (RESTful API Modeling Language) code to design and manage the RESTful APIs. It requires permission from the owner organization to use the Anypoint Platform. Or anyone can have a free 30 days trial account to access it.
As the name denotes, it is a platform to perform various activities. This is the platform which can connect any application, API, and data source to all sort of devices. Anypoint Platform is active both in the cloud hub and on-premise.
