MongoDB 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 get access to the <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 in this topic by using Studio. When you install the MongoDB Connector in Anypoint Studio, Studio automatically populates the XML code with the MongoDB Connector namespace and schema location, and adds a dependency to the pom.xml file.

Add a Namespace for the Connector

Paste the following into the header of your configuration XML, inside the <mule> tag:

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

<mule xmlns:mongodb=""

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 this 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.


After completing your namespace and pom.xml file, you can try out the MongoDB Examples.
