Example Implementation

  1. Drag an HTTP connector into a new flow, followed by an HTTP Static Resource Handler.

  2. Leave the HTTP connector with its default settings, pointing to localhost:8081.

  3. Create a new folder on your local hard drive, then place a static html file in it. Any html file will do.

  4. Configure the HTTP Static Resource Handler to reference the folder and file. In this example, the path is /Users/aaron/Desktop/Input and the file name is mulesoft.html.

  5. Save, then run your project.

  6. Open any browser window, then type localhost:8081/mulesoft.html into the address bar (or whatever your html file is named). 

  7. Your html file loads.

The payload produced by this component is the HTTP content of the mulesoft.html file. The folder specified in the Resource Base may also contain other files such as .css stylesheets or .js scripts that the main .html file can reference.

  1. Create a new flow and add an HTTP inbound endpoint. Set the host to localhost and the port to 8081.

    <flow name="Flow1" doc:name="Flow1">
        <http:inbound-endpoint exchange-pattern="request-response" host="localhost" port="8081" doc:name="HTTP"/>
    </flow>
  2. Create a new folder on your local hard drive, then place any static html file in that folder. In this example, the path is /Users/aaron/Desktop/Input and the file name is mulesoft.html.

  3. Add a HTTP Static Resource Handler and configure it to reference this file.

            <http:static-resource-handler resourceBase="/Users/aaron/Desktop/Input" doc:name="HTTP Static Resource Handler" defaultFile="mulesoft.html"/>
    </flow>
  4. Save, then run your project.

  5. Open any browser window, then type localhost:8081/mulesoft.html into the address bar (or whatever your html file is named).

The payload produced by this component is the HTTP content of the mulesoft.html file. The folder specified in the Resource Base may also contain other files such as .css stylesheets or .js scripts that the main .html file can reference.

In this example, the resource handler deals with documents in the project folder src/main/app/web, referenced dynamically through the expression ${app.home}/web
