Getting Started with the Mule SDK for Java
Create your first Mule SDK project in just a few steps:
Install required software
Generate a project using Maven and explore it
Set up your IDE
Build the project you generated
Develop a connector or module
Run the connector or module in Anypoint Studio
The SDK provides a Maven plugin and a Maven archetype to create new projects. The archetype is a project template; use it to ensure your new project has a consistent structure, employs recommended practices, and contains a few elements for you to experiment with.
Install and verify that the following tools are working in your local environment:
Java Development Kit 8 (JDK 8) to compile and build your Java code.
Apache Maven, version 3.3.9 or higher, to manage your project’s build.
generate command to create an extension project based on the Maven archetype:
You are prompted to provide required field values, then a new project is generated.
The generated project contains the basic Mule module structure with some basic classes, a dummy implementation, and two running tests that use the generated module.
Because this project is a Maven project, it contains a
pom.xml file that contains all the information and configuration details used by Maven to perform the build. This generated POM file inherits from the module’s parent POM, which contains all the common configurations and defaults for all Mule module projects.
1 2 3 4 5 <parent> <groupId>org.mule.extensions</groupId> <artifactId>mule-modules-parent</artifactId> <version>1.1.0</version> </parent>
For the SDK to work, you must pass the command line parameter
-parameters to the Java compiler.
If you use Anypoint Studio or Eclipse:
Right-click the project.
Java Compiler, and enable
Store information about method parameters (usable via reflection).
Once your project is generated, build it:
mvn clean install
This command compiles your project, runs the tests, and installs the project in your local Maven repository.
@Extension annotated class and examine module structure and the different elements that you can add to a module. Use these elements to modify a connector.
Once your connector is working, you can try it in Anypoint Studio.
Go to your Mule app
pom.xml file and add the connector as a
<dependency> with its
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 ... <dependencies> ... <dependency> <groupId>org.mule.connector</groupId> <artifactId>mule-connector</artifactId> <version>1.0.0</version> <classifier>mule-plugin</classifier> </dependency> ... </dependencies> ...
|Different features are available in different vesions of the SDK for Java. See Choosing the SDK version to pick the right version for your connector.|
