writeLinesWith(Array<String>, String): Binary

Writes the specified lines and returns the binary content.

Introduced in DataWeave 2.2.0. Supported by Mule 4.2 and later.


Name Description


Array of items to write.


String representing the encoding to use when writing.


This example inserts a new line (\n) after each iteration. Specifically, it uses map to iterate over the result of to(1, 10), [1,2,3,4,5], then writes the specified content ("Line $"), which includes the unnamed variable $ for each number in the array.

Note that without writeLinesWith "UTF-8", the expression { lines: to(1, 10) map "Line $" } simply returns an array of line numbers as the value of an object: { "lines": [ "line 1", "line 2", "line 3", "line 4", "line 5" ] }.


%dw 2.0
import * from dw::core::Binaries
output application/json
{ lines: to(1, 10) map "Line $" writeLinesWith  "UTF-8" }


  "lines": "Line 1\nLine 2\nLine 3\nLine 4\nLine 5\n"
