5. How to use the Invoke, Get Function, and List Functions Lambda Connectors
In this blog post, I will demonstrate how to Integrate AWS Lambda with MuleSoft. The GitHub repository with the Mule Project can be found at the end of the post.
AWS Lambda is an on-demand cloud computing resource offered as a function-as-a-service by AWS. AWS Lambda allows you to add custom logic to AWS resources such as Amazon S3 buckets and Amazon DynamoDB tables, so you can easily apply it to compute data as it enters or moves through the cloud. AWS Lambda was designed for use cases such as image or object uploads to Amazon S3, updates to DynamoDB tables, responding to website clicks, or reacting to sensor readings from an IoT-connected device. AWS Lambda can also be used to automatically provision back-end services triggered by custom HTTP requests, and "spin down" such services when not in use, to save resources.
Anypoint Connector for Amazon Lambda (Amazon Lambda Connector) enables you to execute AWS Lambda operations within your Mule flows. You can then use the response of the Lambda operation to process another Mule flow as needed.
In this article, we will see how we can use the Anypoint Lambda Connector to Integrate.
