Box XML and Maven Support - Mule 4

If you manually code a Mule application in XML either from the Studio XML editor or a text editor, you must perform the following actions to get access to a connector:

  1. Add the namespace for the connector to your XML flow.

  2. Add dependency information to your Maven pom.xml file.

In the Studio visual editor, when you drag a connector from the palette to the canvas, Studio automatically populates the XML code with the connector namespace and schema location.

Add a Namespace for the Connector

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

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

<mule xmlns:mule-box-connector=""

Add a POM File Dependency

The pom.xml Maven file generated by Anypoint 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 the connector.


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, access the connector in Anypoint Exchange and click Dependency Snippets.


Now that you have read about XML support, you can try out the Box Examples Examples.
