Amazon EC2 - XML and Maven Support - Mule 4

Although you can manually code a Mule app in XML, it is more efficient to use Anypoint Studio:

  • 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 access the connector from your app by adding reference statements to both your XML Mule flow and the Apache Maven pom.xml file.

  • If you add the connector in Studio, Studio automatically populates the XML code with the connector’s namespace and schema location and it also adds a dependency to the pom.xml file.

Add a Namespace for the Connector

  1. Include the Amazon EC2 namespace and schema location in your configuration file.

    Namespace: http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ec2
    Schema Location: http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ec2/current/mule-ec2.xsd

    These statements appear in the <mule> block that starts a Mule app:

    <mule xmlns:ec2="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ec2"
    	xmlns="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core"
    	xmlns:doc="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/documentation"
    	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    	xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core
    	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core/current/mule.xsd
    	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ec2
    	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ec2/current/mule-ec2.xsd">
  2. Create a global Amazon EC2 configuration outside your flows, using the following global configuration code:

    <ec2:config name="Amazon_EC2_configuration" doc:name="Amazon EC2 Configuration" >
    	<ec2:basic-connection
    		accessKey="${amazon.accesskey}"
    		secretKey="${amazon.secretkey}"
    		region="${amazon.region}"
    		sessionToken="{amazon.sessionToken}"/>
    </ec2:config>

    == Add a POM File Dependency

The Apache Maven pom.xml file generated by Anypoint Studio contains dependencies for a Mule app. If 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-ec2-connector</artifactId>
    <version>x.x.x</version>
    <classifier>mule-plugin</classifier>
</dependency>

Replace x.x.x 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 ec2.

  4. Select Amazon EC2 Connector.

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