Mulesoft represents an online and on-prem automation tool that connects your apps and services. You can connect two or more apps to automate repetitive tasks without coding or relying on developers to build the integration. Mulesoft’s out-of-the-box connectors, integration templates, and drag-and-drop design environment make SaaS connectivity quick and easy.

The Anypoint platform enables you to build your integrations by using different Connectors that are available within the MuleSoft ecosystem.
One way to integrate CloudBlue Connect with Mulesoft is by using the Connect API specification with the API Connector. However, it requires understanding of the API technology and it might be time-consuming. Therefore, in order to simplify and streamline the work of systems integrators, the CloudBlue Connect team developed a Connector for Mulesoft.
Mulesoft provides you with reusable assets to build required APIs and integrations with just a couple of clicks or by coding — whether it is through a web interface of the Design Center or via the desktop IDE of Anypoint Studio.
Note that Mulesoft often refers to integrations as ‘Applications‘. Thus, as mentioned before, Mulesoft offers two ways to design and develop your Application (via the Design Center and via Anypoint Studio) that are described below.
Mulesoft’s Design Center is available from the Anypoint platform. Design Center enables you to build simple workflows and integrations. The following describes and highlights general Design Center features:
Create and document APIs by using a web-based interface. Design Center also enables you to easily generate API specifications in OAS/RAML. In addition, you can use a mocking service to test and validate required APIs.
Move, synchronize, or modify data via a visual interface. By selecting Mulesoft components and 3rd party connectors, you can design and build your Application on Mulesoft.
Build, test, and debug APIs and integrations by using a graphical user interface or by using your XML files. Transform and map complex data or and build custom Connectors by using the Design Center.
Anypoint Studio allows users to quickly build APIs and integrations by simply dragging and dropping components.
Anypoint Studio features hundreds of pre-built connectors, templates, examples, and APIs. Anypoint Studio also includes a Connector, templates and examples developed by CloudBlue Connect. Note that Anypoint Studio is used to:
