Mule Hazelcast server documentation

Setting this up is an optional step when configuring Anypoint Platform for PCF. You need this in case you plan to deploy your applications to clusters on PCF.

Mule Hazelcast server is a customization of the hazelcast distribution adapted for the needs of the Mule Runtime.

This custom implementation doesn’t change the Hazelcast behavior at all. It just set up basic configuration required by the Mule Runtime plus default configuration for logging using log4j.


The only requirement is to have JDK 1.8 installed and the JAVA_HOME environment variable properly set


To install:
  • Unzip the distribution into your working directory

  • Execute bin/ (in linux) or bin.start.bat (in windows)

This will start a Hazelcast server node using the default configuration located in the conf/hazelcast.xml file.


Log4j Configuration

To configure log4j just customize the log4j configuration file located in conf/log4.xml.

Hazelcast Configuration

To customize the Hazelcast configuration, just modify the file located in conf/hazelcast.xml following the hazelcast documentation instructions. Take into account that the Hazelcast version being used is 3.6.2.

Proper configuration requires:

  • Change the default group name and group password. These values are used to define a cluster with Hazelcast. All nodes with the same group name/password will create a cluster

  • Configure the network parameters for proper communication between the cluster nodes
