Average rating: **...
(2.50, 2 ratings)

Increasingly, development teams are leverage virtualization to reduce costs and incorporating cloud-based services into their application architectures. Since companies rarely throw away existing systems, developers need to understand how to build applications around existing or legacy systems in a service-oriented way while also pulling in new cloud services and providing reliability, availability, and scalability. With in-house and in-the-cloud applications, developers are also faced with needing to integrate on both sides of the firewall.

This session details how developers can use Mule – an open source enterprise service bus (ESB) – to develop, deploy and integrate composite applications on both sides of the firewall, and how Mule can work with complementary technology to address virtualization concerns. The session will be a practical guide for building service-based composite applications connecting on-premise and in-the-cloud applications using Mule.

In this session you will learn:

  • What you should consider when building applications that combine on-premise and cloud services
  • How to use Mule and other technologies to enable this type of development
  • Simple rules for designing and implementing services;
  • How to use your existing development skills to build service-oriented composite applications
