MuleSoft, provider of the leading platform for building application networks, today announced the next major release of Anypoint Platform. This release introduces a whole new way companies connect, share and manage data and applications with application networks. An application network is built using APIs to connect applications, data and devices, making them pluggable and reusable. By making any application, data or device plug-and-play into an application network, companies can achieve business outcomes faster. With a modern approach to the API development lifecycle and a blueprint for building organization-wide reuse, this new release allows customers to put API-led connectivity at the center of their digital transformation strategies.
MuleSoft's Anypoint Platform is a complete solution for API-led connectivity that creates a seamless application network of apps, data, and devices, both on-premises and in the cloud. The latest Anypoint Platform release enables customers to put API-led connectivity at the heart of their digital transformation strategies. Together with Catalyst™, MuleSoft's proven model for driving business outcomes, customers can achieve business transformation through people, process and technology.

Anypoint Platform June 2016 release highlights include:

Re-architected API development lifecycle provides rails for building pluggable nodes for application networks, regardless of application or data type
* Friction-free experience for designing and implementing APIs: New API designer functionality embedded in Anypoint Studio™ allows multiple stakeholders, including API designers, back-end developers and app developers, to collaborate and iterate on API designs within their native workspaces. Teams can move through the API development lifecycle without switching between environments, reducing process friction and dramatically increasing the speed of API delivery.
* Early access support for RAML 1.0: Leveraging the full power of RAML® 1.0, API developers can now create and reuse design libraries across network components, improving design consistency and speeding API delivery. Annotations and YAML-based examples enhance human readability, easing collaboration and developer onboarding.
* SOAP support in APIkit: In addition to RAML and OData, development of SOAP APIs now take full advantage of the power of APIkit, enabling developers to automatically generate Mule flows from WSDLs with a few clicks. This enables an API-led connectivity approach across more types of APIs across the enterprise.
* More legacy data types available in DataWeave: Define schemas with YAML-based syntax and automatically map schemas with pluggable data connectors for fixed width, flat file, as well as COBOL copybook in beta.
* Expanded connector portfolio: New connectors for Box, Kafka, Redis and Zuora, as well as updated connectors for SAP, Salesforce and Workday, allow more systems than ever to participate in application networks.
