Mule ESB is a product that enables integration of many applications in a simple and fast way. ESB (Enterprise Service Bus), in other words the Corporate Service Bus, is a solution in which many systems can be dynamically turned on and off in a multi-layered corporate environment. Mule enables data integration in real time or in batch. It has universal connection and integration capabilities with various systems, including JMS, Web Services, JDBC and HTTP. This solution resembles physical data buses in desktops. However, here we are dealing with Anypoint Platform engine based on Java.
In short, this platform enables communication of various applications, operating on the principle of a transit tunnel through which data travels. The exchange can take place inside a closed environment or via the Internet. The ESB conducts integration without sharing information about the physical location of any of the other information services or protocols.
What makes Mule ESB stand out from other products? Data exchange takes place between different formats and protocols. You can direct messages, filter them, collect and change their order based on their content and rules. ESB Mule will accompany every exchange and protect them from message formatting and separate business logic from communication.
