Github repository with the Mule Project can be found at the end of the post.

In this blog post we will be gathering the scattered thoughts by routing them into a singular direction. You would have probably guessed it by now, we will be discussing an Enterprise Integration Pattern for Message Routing called the Scatter-Gather. We will first try to understand the concept of Scatter-Gather and then demonstrate its ability with the help of MuleSoft ESB connector for the same.

If you are someone who doesn’t like a lot of text, the depicted pictures will whisper the secret, in parallel.
