In the previous blog, we have seen how to create an API specification in the Anypoint Design Center using RAML. Now, we need a platform to publish it so that other developers can discover and access it. Anypoint Exchange is the platform that helps in accessing the APIs. Let’s discuss the Anypoint Exchange now.
Introduction to Anypoint Exchange
Exchange is the platform provided by MuleSoft’s Anypoint platform for sharing and reusing of assets within the Anypoint Platform ecosystem. Using the Anypoint Exchange, developers can access the pre-built assets that other developers have shared in the MuleSoft community. It promotes joint effort by allowing developers to reuse existing ready-to-use APIs and connectors rather than building everything from scratch. Developers can now import shared assets from the exchange directly into their projects. This saves a lot of time and effort during the development.
