Amazon SQS Connector 5.6 XML and Maven Support - Mule 4

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

You can avoid the manual process described next by using Studio. When you install Amazon SQS Connector in Studio, Studio automatically populates the XML code with the Amazon SQS Connector namespace and schema location, and 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/amazon-sqs
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/amazon-sqs/current/mule-amazon-sqs.xsd

This example shows how the namespace statements are placed in the XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<mule xmlns:ee="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core"
xmlns:http="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http"
xmlns:sqs="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/sqs"
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/sqs
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/sqs/current/mule-sqs.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/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 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-sqs-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 <connector-name>.

  4. Select the connector.

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

Next Step

After completing your namespace and pom.xml file, you can try the example.
