Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals

Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals 3.9

Summary

This instructor-led course is for developers and architects who want to get hands-on experience using Anypoint Platform to build APIs and integrations. In the first part, students use Anypoint Platform discover, consume, design, build, deploy, manage, and govern APIs. In the second part, students focus on using Mule and Anypoint Studio to build applications for use as API implementations and/or integrations.

The course includes a voucher code to take the MuleSoft Certified Developer – Integration and API Associate exam.

A downloadable data sheet for the course can be found here.

Objectives

  • Build an application network using API-led connectivity and Anypoint Platform
  • Use Anypoint Exchange as a central repository for the discovery and reuse of assets
  • Use flow designer to build apps that consume assets and connect systems
  • Use API designer to define APIs with RAML, the RESTful API Modeling Language
  • Use Anypoint Studio to build and debug integrations and API implementations and integrations
  • Connect to databases, files, web services, SaaS applications, JMS queues, and more
  • Transform data using DataWeave, the powerful transformation language
  • Add application logic and handle errors
  • Structure applications to facilitate development and deployment
  • Handle batch data processing
  • Deploy API implementations and integrations to CloudHub
  • Use API Manager to create and deploy API proxies that govern access to APIs

Prerequisites

  • Experience with Java (preferred) or another 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

Note: Although students with .NET and other non-Java OOP backgrounds can be successful using MuleSoft technologies, some Java is necessary to leverage all the capabilities of MuleSoft products. See here for Java training resources.

Setup Requirements

  • A computer with:
    • At least 4GB available RAM, 2GHz CPU, and 4GB available storage
    • A minimum screen resolution of 1024x768
    • The latest version of Firefox or Chrome or Internet Explorer 10 or newer
  • Internet access to ports 80, 3306, and 61616 (with > 5Mbps download and > 2Mbps upload)
  • JDK 1.8
  • Anypoint Studio with embedded Mule 3.9 runtime
  • An Anypoint Platform account
  • A Salesforce Developer account (NOT a standard account) and API Access token
  • Postman REST client app (or some other REST client app)
