Anypoint Platform | API Lifecycle | Application Building Block
What can you create with Anypoint Platform?
An application network emerges from the creation of application building blocks. These building blocks encapsulate the ubiqitous connectivity and runtime logic required to power today's applications, and are designed for consumption with security and governance baked in to promote reuse. Anypoint Platform provides the only unified platform for designing, building and managing the full lifecycle of these application building blocks.
While other vendors may present a solution with parts cobbled together from newer cloud solutions, legacy on-premises offerings and acquired products, only Anypoint Platform enables users to move seamlessly from design to implementation to management with unified tooling, an experience powered by a single 250 MB runtime for delivering APIs and hybrid connectivity.
- Design and mock your building block API spec to validate functionality
- Visually compose building block connections, data mappings, and tests
- Browse existing artifacts to incorporate best practices, or share new building blocks
- Deploy to the cloud or on-premise, and change targets without rewriting code
- Manage, secure and analyze building blocks from a single pane of glass
Lifecycle of an Application Building Block
Without writing a single line of code, designers can perfect their application building block through active collaboration on API requirements and examples and even with customers, partners and internal engineers with API Designer and RAML. Share a mocked service to collect early feedback via API Portals and validate functionality before implementation even begins.
Import your API specification into Anypoint Studio and speed up development by visually creating integration flows with the modular and reusable components of the Mule runtime engine. Drop into DataWeave and map data graphically and accurately with real-time data previews and ensure quality by composing MUnit tests while you design.
Don’t start from scratch. Browse Anypoint Exchange to find connectors, templates, examples and APIs built by the MuleSoft ecosystem or internal best practices shared to promote consistency and reuse. Access to assets can be controlled and federated across business groups.
Once deployed, building blocks are automatically registered on the application network, providing instant visibility. Ensure they are secure by applying global or local policies with API Manager and monitor and analyze performance to optimize value.
