MongoDB Connector 6.3 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 Anypoint Connector for MongoDB (MongoDB 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 MongoDB Connector in 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 inside the <mule> tag of the header of your configuration XML:

http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/mongodb
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/mongodb/current/mule-mongo.xsd

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

<mule xmlns:mongodb="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/mongodb"
	xmlns:ee="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core"
	xmlns:http="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http"
	xmlns:file="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file"
	xmlns="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core"
	xmlns:doc="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/documentation"
	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core/current/mule.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file/current/mule-file.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http/current/mule-http.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core/current/mule-ee.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/mongodb
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/mongodb/current/mule-mongo.xsd">

Add a POM File Dependency

The pom.xml Maven file generated by 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:

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.mulesoft.connectors</groupId>
  <artifactId>mule-mongodb-connector</artifactId>
  <version>6.x.x</version>
  <classifier>mule-plugin</classifier>
</dependency>

To obtain the most up-to-date pom.xml file information, access the connector in Anypoint Exchange and click Dependency Snippets. Replace 6.x.x in the <version> element with your MongoDB version.
