Getting around mixed content errors when using Snaplogic XML Parser

We're doing a Snaplogic proof of concept and the UI is quite pretty so I thought I would write some blog posts about it. This will make a break from the normal boring badly spelled content I publish! Snaplogic works very well with JSON data in its pipelines but the integrations that we need to build make heavy use of XML. One solution is to use the XML Parser snap which will convert the XML into JSON. Unfortunately, the XML Parser failed for the first pipeline we tried in our POC!

My plans for a SAAS multi-tenant security microservice

I have been thinking a lot recently about how microservice based approaches can work for me in resolving many of the problems I encounter. The trouble is there is a tonne of information on the subject and working out a clear definition of a microservice is not easy. I needed to work out what I think a microservice actually is. (See To do this I want to build an experimental microservice to see how the technical challenges pan out.
