There are a wide range of scheduling options that are made available to a Boomi application once it is deployed. Depending on the inbound connector used in the application, once deployed the process can run on a schedule or it can continuously poll some existing data source. How the process runs is dependent on if the inbound connector being a “Get” operation or a “Listen” operation.
A “Get” operation allows the process to get a set of inbound records from a data source. Upon deployment this process can either be triggered manually or can have a schedule set up so that it runs on set intervals, for example perhaps it is desired that the process runs every Tuesday and Thursday of every week.
A “Listen” operation allows a data source to be continuously polled and will retrieve data as it comes in. An…
While the Dell Boomi user interface is highly robust and user friendly there are times when using the user interface can prove to be quite tedious. One example that we have discovered to be an example of this are process deployments. In order to deploy a set of Boomi processes one must search for each individual process and deploy. This may not seem overly tedious if AtomSphere only has a few processes. But in some cases AtomSphere could have numerous applications each consisting of many processes. It is easy to see given the scenario how frequent deployments could prove to be very time consuming.
Luckily, there is an alternative to using the AtomSphere user interface. Dell Boomi offers a set of APIs (both REST and SOAP) that can be used for various sets of tasks and that includes deploying Boomi processes….
Setting Verbose mode for a Boomi Process using a Dynamic Process Property
In most instances developers will have to accommodate certain reporting, notification and logging requirements of a given interface within the Dell Boomi AtomSphere platform.
Often times, the logging or emailing may need to be disabled for testing and/or faster iterative cycling through test cases and, of course, to not annoy the user community with email test messages.
The most straightforward way to accomplish or implement a verbose or Test Mode Boolean flag (as is very common in other platforms) is to create and enable a Dynamic Process Property and then assign its default value while allowing to reassign the same with extensions directly after deployment.
Dell Boomi’s AtomSphere integration platform provides a simple, yet very powerful feature – the ability to utilize temporary, and semi-temporary files system folders. Coming from a Microsoft BizTalk integration background, the ability to store documents to a temporary directory is a huge advantage over storing into a database such as the BizTalk MessageBox, especially with larger files. While BizTalk does provide the necessary mechanism to save files to a local folder through the use of the file adapter, Boomi provides an easier way of achieving this.
Dell Boomi continues to lead the iPaaS platform with leading edge features and cloud specific tools to help you succeed with your integration implementation. For the month of January Tallan is excited to announce AtomSphere’s latest feature set:
Release Details for 2016.01.13
Atom and Connector Updates
To improve the efficiency of Atom and connector updates, these updates now originate from a content delivery web service.
To enable updates from this service, ensure your network or firewall is configured to allow connections to https://software.cdn.boomi.com/.
For the next few releases, should an update from this service fail, the update will automatically be requested from the Dell Boomi platform (https://platform.boomi.com/).
The topic Hostnames and IP Addresses for Connecting to Dell Boomi is updated to reflect this enhancement.
During a Java migration for your Atom, Molecule or Atom Cloud, you can automatically migrate your custom certificates from the prior Java version’s…

Java 8 Support
Atom Cloud upgraders and installers (for Windows and Linux) for Java 8 are available.
For new Molecule and Cloud installations on Java 8, the default cluster library is JGroups 3.
Additionally, if a non-Atom folder is selected during an upgrade to Java 8, clicking OK returns to the previous screen to select a different installation folder.
