Mule ESB

You can use mule in conjunction with AnyPoint IDE(Eclipse based) or as standalone runtime, which I prefer. Download the community edition standalone from https://developer.mulesoft.com/download-mule-esb-runtime Extract the zip and probably place it to a dir where you normally put software. For me it is ~/installs

$ cd <where_you_unzipped_mule>
# To start mule 

$ ./bin/mule
# To start mule as daemeon

$ ./bin/mule start
# To stop|restart

$ ./bin/mule stop|restart

To deploy applications to the standalone mule runtime, drop your project’s zip file to $MULE_HOME/apps and start mule
