Modules Reference

Modules are similar to transports in that they provide pluggable functionality, configured via dedicated schema, but they differ in that there is no underlying transport to send or receive data. Following is a list of the default Mule modules.

Module Description

Atom Module

Support for consuming and creating Atom feeds.


Mule’s support for BPM allows you to send/receive messages to/from a running process. A message from Mule can start or advance a process, the message can be stored as a process variable, and a running process can send messages to any endpoint in your Mule application.

CXF Module

Mule 3.0 architectural changes bring much better support for CXF, meaning it can be used just like another pipe/filter element.

Client Module

MuleClient and the remote dispatcher, giving simple access to the Mule server.

JAAS Module

Security via JAAS.

JBoss Transaction Manager

JBoss transaction support.

Jersey Module

Support for RESTful web services built using Jersey.

JSON Module

JSON data and binding support.
