The web has introduced thousands of new applications for business, IT, collaboration, social media, e-commerce and productivity and many of them now expose web APIs to integrate and automate the use of these applications and the data they manage.
Mule Runtime supports a growing number of Cloud Connectors but you or your customers might require connectivity to a application API which is not currently listed. To help with this, there is the Mule DevKit which guides the developer though the setup and creation of a Cloud Connector.
In addition to creating connectors, the DevKit can help you build transformers, filters, transports, and much… much more.
Look at our Your First Cloud Connector section to get started.
If you need help while developing your Cloud Connector you can always visit the Forums and post your question to the community.
If you have found a bug in one of the cloud connectors or the cloud connector development kit itself, you can report it with our bug tracker.
The document includes the following sections:
Writing Mule Extensions explains how to code, document, and package Mule extensions using the Mule DevKit.
Contribute explains how the Community can help improve the Mule DevKit. The Mule DevKit project source code is open to the entire Community.
How the Devkit Works shows how the DevKit works under the covers.
