Include XML Namespaces

DataWeave 2.1 is compatible with Mule 4.1. Standard Support for Mule 4.1 ended on November 2, 2020, and this version of Mule will reach its End of Life on November 2, 2022, when Extended Support ends.

Deployments of new applications to CloudHub that use this version of Mule are no longer allowed. Only in-place updates to applications are permitted.

MuleSoft recommends that you upgrade to the latest version of Mule 4 that is in Standard Support so that your applications run with the latest fixes and security enhancements.

This DataWeave example defines different namespaces in the header and then references them on each tag.

This example uses:

  • namespace definitions in the header.

  • @ to define other attributes in an XML element.

    orders#orders: {
        stores#shipNodeId: "SF01",
        stores#shipNodeId @(shipsVia:"LA01"): "NY03"
        }
