Azure Service Bus Connector 3.1 Examples - Mule 4

The examples in this section show application flows that:

These examples use variables for some field values. You can either:

  • Replace the variables with their values in the code

  • Provide the values for each variable in a properties file and then refer to that file from the connector configuration

    For more information about using a properties file, see Configuring Property Placeholders

Prerequisites

  • Java 8

  • Anypoint Studio 7.1.0 or later

  • Mule Runtime 4.2.x EE or later

  • Creation of a new queue for testing purpose on Azure Portal

Create a Mule Project

After you create a new Mule project and configure your credentials, you can create an application flow for each example by using the provided XML code.

To create a Mule project:

  1. In Studio, select File > New > Mule Project.

  2. Enter a name for your Mule project and click Finish.

  3. Create a file named mule-app.properties and save it in <project-name>/src/main/resources.

  4. Configure your Azure connection credentials in the file mule-app.properties, and include the name of the Azure queue you created, for example:

    #==============================================================
    #Connection Parameters
    #==============================================================
    # Azure
    azure.namespace=myazure
    azure.keyname=SAStokenname
    azure.key=SAStoken
    queue.name=mytestqueue
  5. Save the file.

  6. Open the Global Element Configuration and click Test Connection to verify your credentials.

Send and Receive Example

This flow shows an example of how to use the Send and Receive From Queue operations to send and receive messages:

To create this flow:

  1. In the Studio canvas, click Configuration XML.

  2. Delete all the contents after the line <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>.

  3. Copy and paste the following XML after the line <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>:

Send, Listen, and Acknowledge the Message Example

This application flow uses the Send and Message Listener operations. The Message Listener is using the MANUAL acknowledgment type, which means that the application logic is responsible for acknowledging receipt of the message. In this example, that logic is provided by adding the Complete operation to the same flow as the Message Listener.

The following screenshot shows this flow:
