Reviewing the Mule Cookbook from PacktPublisher

Since a few months I am involved in a few Mule ESB projects again. Although it had been a while working with Mule they still know where to find me for some project work with the Mule ESB πŸ™‚
At the same time I was contacted by PacktPub to review their latest book about Mule 3: Mule ESB Cook Book.
I was really looking forward to it. Although I have been using Mule for quite some time and in different environments I haven’t had a project that didn’t teach me something new. So I was hoping to pick up some more hidden gems I wasn’t aware of. However, it is not going to be this book that is showing me some hidden gems. I am not sure who would take advantage of the book to be honest. The recipes discuss rather simple use cases in my opinion and mostly show how to work your way through the Mule Studio, which offers a graphical interface to create your Mule flows. If you want a deeper understanding of the Mule ESB this book isn’t for you. Also I don’t expect this book will be of much use if you run into some real world issues because it is simply too simplistic. The good news is that this leaves space for a more advanced Mule cookbook by, for example, by David Dossot πŸ˜‰
