Amazon DynamoDB XML and Maven Support - Mule 4

If you manually code a Mule runtime engine (Mule) app in XML, either from the Anypoint Studio XML editor or from a text editor, you can get access to the connector in your app by adding reference statements to both your XML Mule flow and the Apache Maven pom.xml file.

You can avoid this manual process by using Studio. When you install the connector in Studio, Studio automatically populates the XML code with the connector’s namespace and schema location. It also adds a dependency to the pom.xml file.

Add a Namespace for the Connector

Paste the following code inside the <mule> tag of the header of your configuration XML:

http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/dynamodb
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/dynamodb/current/mule-dynamodb.xsd

This example shows how the namespace statements are placed in the <mule> XML block:

<mule xmlns:ee="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core"
        xmlns:dynamodb="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/dynamodb"
        xmlns:http="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http"
        xmlns="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core"
        xmlns:doc="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/documentation"
        xmlns:spring="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
        xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
        xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans
        http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-current.xsd
        http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core
        http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core/current/mule.xsd
        http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http
        http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/
        http/current/mule-http.xsd
        http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/dynamodb
        http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/dynamodb/current/mule-dynamodb.xsd
        http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core
        http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core/current/mule-ee.xsd">

Add a POM File Dependency

The Apache Maven pom.xml file generated by Studio contains dependencies for a Mule app. When you code a Mule app manually, include this XML snippet in your pom.xml file to enable access to this connector:

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.mulesoft.connectors</groupId>
  <artifactId>mule-amazon-dynamodb-connector</artifactId>
  <version>n.n.n</version>
  <classifier>mule-plugin</classifier>
</dependency>

Replace n.n.n with the version that corresponds to the connector you are using.

To obtain the most up-to-date pom.xml file information:

  1. Go to Anypoint Exchange.

  2. In Exchange, click Login and supply your Anypoint Platform username and password.

  3. In Exchange, search for amazon dynamodb.

  4. Select the connector.

  5. Click Dependency Snippets near the upper right of the screen.
