Quicktipp: Working with more than one package name in a JAXB Context Config in Mule ESB

If you want to structure your code with packages for different JAXB annotated classes, for example after generating JAXB from different WSDLs, do not try to define severall jaxb context elements in Mule ESB, as this is going to fail at runtime.

… <mulexml:jaxb-context name=“JAXB_Context1“ packageNames=“org.example.test1“ doc:name=“JAXB Context1“ /> <mulexml:jaxb-context name=“JAXB_Context2“ packageNames=“org.example.test2“ doc:name=“JAXB Context2“ /> . . . → Read More: Quicktipp: Working with more than one package name in a JAXB Context Config in Mule ESB

Mulesoft Anypoint Platform – Running QUARTZ Scheduler Jobs

(republished on Cattle Crew)

The Java QUARTZ Job Scheduler framework is a common piece of software and can be found in many environments. Although the Mulesoft Anypoint Platform provides its own scheduling API, it is a common task to use the QUARTZ framework instead. Especially, if scheduling might be centralized among different applications and might . . . → Read More: Mulesoft Anypoint Platform – Running QUARTZ Scheduler Jobs

Mulesoft absolute path to files with ${app.home}

I just stumbled over the case that I needed an absolute path to a file inside of my Mulesoft deployment. As I do not know where the archive is going to be deployed and different stages for test, integration and production could be supported, environment based properties were not the best solution.

However, I . . . → Read More: Mulesoft absolute path to files with ${app.home}

The IT trends mentioned in the title can be found in many forums, articles and blogs introducing future scenarios and informing about the next industrial revolution. But what is it all about?

More or less, it is all about situational awareness. With the help of the technologies which these IT trends promote, devices can be . . . → Read More: Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 and Cyber Physical Systems

Prototyping with Mobile Phones – Running Restlet on Android

For prototyping purposes I had to develop a communication mechanism between a mobile phone and computer. I did not want to rely on push services like Google Cloud Messaging [1] as I simply had to push information to a single Android device and I wanted to have full control over the data and communication. Therefore, . . . → Read More: Prototyping with Mobile Phones – Running Restlet on Android

Commercial of the shelf (COTS) and the Internet of Services (IoS) – Recurring principles in Software Engineering

Surely, there are parallels between different visions or concepts in the field of computer science and much research in this field is about identifying these parallels to generate some learning outcome. However, today I had a discussion about the Internet of Services and the possibility to combine the different services to create mashup applications. In . . . → Read More: Commercial of the shelf (COTS) and the Internet of Services (IoS) – Recurring principles in Software Engineering
