The Mule 3.6 release brought a comprehensive and very welcome refresh of XML capabilities, including cutting-edge XSLT support via the Saxon 9.6 HE library. Unfortunately one feature lost in this overhaul was Saxon’s easy mechanism for using Java methods as XSLT extension functions.

The groovy script transformer component is a very powerful piece of Mule. I use it for almost every message transformation that I need to make.

Recently we’ve been writing quite a few ‘bulk’ APIs - where consumers don’t want a single resource, or a screenful of search results but instead need (close to) the entire record set. In this blog we discuss several features of the Mule ESB platform that make is easy to design and implement bulk APIs over a variety of back-end technologies.
