POJO Class Bindings and Factory Classes

Mule Runtime Engine versions 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7 reached End of Life on or before January 25, 2020. For more information, contact your Customer Success Manager to determine how you can migrate to the latest Mule version.

Anypoint™ DataMapper allows you to map an interface or abstract class as a POJO. Binding in this case, refers to linking your POJO (which can be an interface or abstract class) to concrete class. Thus, when instantiating your POJO, Mule uses concrete class you specified.

Factory class allow you to delegate object construction to another class. In this case, your factory class must have static method called create that returns the object you want to instantiate.


This document assumes the reader is familiar with the Anypoint™ DataMapper Transformer. Consult the [DataMapper User Guide and Reference] document for details. For a listing of all available tools in DataMapper, consult [DataMapper Visual Reference].
