Object Store Connector

Select

The Object Store Connector lets you connect to the object storage facility in Mule and exposes convenient methods for exploiting the capabilities of Mule Object Stores. Internally, Mule uses object stores in various filters, routers, and other message processors that need to store state between messages. The Object Store connector works with the Object Store through references. Any transformations a user applies to an object store using the Object Store connector propagate to all references of that object store.

Prerequisites

This document assumes that you are familiar with Mule, Anypoint Studio, global elements, and DataSense.

Note: ObjectStore does not support TTL in its default configuration.

Namespace and Schema

When designing your application in Studio, the act of dragging the connector from the palette onto the Anypoint Studio canvas should automatically populate the XML code with the connector namespace and schema location.

Namespace

xmlns:objectstore="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/objectstore"

Schema Location

http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/object/current/mule-objectstore.xsd

For example, include the connector namespace and schema location in the XML for your application:

Compatibility

The Object Store connector is compatible with:

Application/Service Version

Mule Runtime

3.6.0 or later

Anypoint Studio

5.2 or later

Starting with version 2.0.0, the Object Store connector is licensed commercially with Anypoint Platform as with other Select connectors.

To Install this Connector

  1. In Anypoint Studio, click the Exchange icon in the Studio taskbar.

  2. Click Login in Anypoint Exchange.

  3. Search for the connector and click Install.

  4. Follow the prompts to install the connector.

When Studio has an update, a message displays in the lower right corner, which you can click to install the update.

About the Object Store Spring Bean Instances

By default, Mule includes three default object stores instantiated every time you run Mule both on premises and on Runtime Manager.

Each Mule runtime includes these three spring bean instances:

  • _defaultInMemoryObjectStore

  • _defaultUserObjectStore

  • _defaultTransientUserObjectStore

You can also code your own object store Java class, then include an instance in your application as a Spring bean. You can then reference your custom object store when you define a new Object Store global element.

Object Store version 2 overrides the _defaultUserObjectStore object store. See Object Store v2.

About Persisting Object Stores in Runtime Manager

The persistent option persists data in on premises applications; however to persist data in Runtime Manager’s Application Data user interface, you need to use the _defaultUserObjectStore spring bean instance in your ObjectStore configuration.

The _defaultUserObjectStore spring bean instance ensures that an Object Store in a Runtime Manager application survives across redeployments. When you use this bean instance, data persists outside the Runtime Manager worker (but in the cloud), which is why the data is available after restarts.

Reference the Spring bean instance using the Object Store Reference field.

The _defaultUserObjectStore parameter is declared as follows in XML:

<objectstore:config ... objectStore-ref="_defaultUserObjectStore" .../>

The Persistent option is declared as follows in XML:

<objectstore:config ... persistent="true"/>

Setting up the Global Configuration Using Studio Visual Editor

Configure a global Object Store element to use by all instances of the Object Store connector in your application.

  1. Click the Global Elements tab at the base of the canvas.

  2. On the Global Mule Configuration Elements screen, click Create.

  3. In the Choose Global Type wizard, expand Connector Configuration and select ObjectStore: Configuration and click Ok.

    Global Element Configuration Wizard

  4. Configure the parameters according to your needs. This is the screen you configure the connector global element from:

    Global Element Configuration

    Parameter Description

    Name

    (Required) Enter a name for the configuration to reference it.

    Partition

    (Required) Name of the partition in the default in-memory or persistent object stores. Important: You must specify a partition name in your configuration.

    Object Store Reference

    Specify the Object Store spring bean instance. This is optional and if not specified, the default in-memory or persistent store is used. See About the Object Store Spring Bean Instances.

    Entry Ttl

    TimeToLive for stored values in milliseconds. "Max Entries" and "Expiration Interval" are mandatory for using this param. You must either provide all Entry TTL, Max Entries, and Expiration Interval, or none of them. The default value is 14 days. The maximum value you can set in this field is 24 days (2,147,483,647 milliseconds). Note: The Object Store v2 REST API, lets you set a TTL of up to 30 days.

    Expiration Interval

    Specifies the expiration check interval in milliseconds.

    Max Entries

    Specifies the maximum number of entries.

    Persistent

    Specified whenever the required store needs to be persistent or not. See About Persisting Object Stores in Runtime Manager.

    Note: In the image above, the placeholder values refer to a configuration file placed in the src folder of your project. See Learn how to configure properties.

    You can either enter your credentials into the global configuration properties, or reference a configuration file that contains these values. For simpler maintenance and better re-usability of your project, Mule recommends that you use a configuration file. Keeping these values in a separate file is useful if you need to deploy to different environments, such as production, development, and QA, where your access credentials differ.

  5. Click OK to save the global connector configurations.

Setting up the Global Configuration Using XML

Follow these steps to configure the connector in your application: Create a global Object Store configuration outside and above your flows, using the following global configuration code.

<objectstore:config name="ObjectStore__Configuration" partition="${objectstore.partition.counter}" doc:name="ObjectStore: Configuration"/>
When you manually code the Mule application in Studio’s XML editor or another text editor, paste these into the header of your Configuration XML inside the <mule> tag as in the example below.
Name Description

name

The identifier of the object store configuration. Other components must reference this configuration via this name.

Studio Field: Name
Default: none
Java Type: String
MIME Type: /
Encoding: UTF-8

doc:name

The string displayed in Anypoint Studio.

Studio Field: Name
Default: none
Java Type: String
MIME Type: /
Encoding: UTF-8

partition

Unique name of the partition in the default in-memory or persistent object store. Important: You must specify a partition name in your configuration.

Studio Field: Partition
Default: none
Java Type: String
MIME Type: /
Encoding: UTF-8

objectStore-ref

Optional. Reference to an object store spring bean instance. Use an instance depending on the context (stand-alone Mule runtime, Mule runtime cluster, or CloudHub cluster). You can also specify one of the default object stores by name _defaultInMemoryObjectStore, _defaultUserObjectStore, or _defaultTransientUserObjectStore. See About the Object Store Spring Bean Instances. Note: You must specify _defaultUserObjectStore to get data to display in Runtime Manager’s Application Data user interface.

Studio Field: Object Store Reference
Default: none
Java Type: String
MIME Type: none
Encoding: none

entryTtl

Time To Live for stored values in milliseconds. If using this parameter, maxEntries, and expirationInterval are mandatory. The default value is 14 days. The maximum value you can set in this field is 24 days (2,147,483,647 milliseconds). Note: The Object Store v2 REST API, lets you set a TTL of up to 30 days.

Studio Field: Entry Ttl
Default: 14 days (1209600000 milliseconds)
Java Type: Integer
MIME Type: /
Encoding: UTF-8

expirationInterval

Specifies the expiration check interval in milliseconds.

Studio Field: Expiration Interval
Default: none
Java Type: Integer
MIME Type: /
Encoding: none

maxEntries

Specifies the maximum number of entries.

Studio Field: Max Entries
Default: none
Java Type: Integer
MIME Type: /
Encoding: none

persistent

Specifies if the required store needs to be persistent or not (this argument is ignored if the object store is passed by reference using the objectStore-ref attribute, or if no partition name is defined). If persistent is false, then data may be lost when a Mule runtime restarts. See About Persisting Object Stores in Runtime Manager.

Studio Field: Persistent (checkbox)
Default: false
Java Type: Boolean
MIME Type: /
Encoding: none

The following is an example objectstore configuration that specifies a partition named customers within the defaultUserObjectStore, and specifying that the object store should be persistent.

<objectstore:config ... partition="customer"  persistent="true"/>

If you do not specify a value for the objectstore-ref, the _defaultUserObjectStore is used, which is equivalent to this configuration:


         
      
1
2
<objectstore:config name="ObjectStore__Configuration"
objectstore-ref="_defaultUserObjectStore"  persistent="true"/>

If you don’t want to use one of the default object stores, you can define your own Java bean and reference it instead in the objectstore-ref attribute.

Updating from an Older Version

If you’re currently using an older version of the connector, a small popup appears in the bottom right corner of Anypoint Studio with an "Updates Available" message.

  1. Click the popup and check for available updates. 

  2. Click the Object Store connector checkbox for the version you require and click Next, following the instructions provided by the user interface. 

  3. Restart Studio when prompted. 

  4. After restarting, when creating a flow and using the Object Store connector, if you have several versions of the connector installed, you may be asked which version you would like to use. Choose the version you would like to use.

We recommend that you keep Studio up to date with its latest version. 

Using This Connector

The Object Store connector is an operation-based connector, which means that when you add the connector to your flow, you need to configure a specific operation for the connector to perform. See the entire operation processors list in the github.io or click individually on the listed operations below. The connector currently supports the following list of operations, each requiring certain attributes to be set:

The Dual store operation may be misleading. The function of this operation is to do two writes to the object store, the first with objectStore.store(key, value) and the second with the objectStore.store(value, key) operation.

Adding to a Flow

  1. Create a new Mule Project in Anypoint Studio.

  2. Add a suitable Mule Inbound Endpoint, such as the HTTP listener or File endpoint, to begin the flow.

  3. Drag and drop the Object Store connector onto the canvas.

  4. Click on the connector component to open the Properties Editor.

    Flow Settings

  5. Configure the following parameters:

Run Time

  1. Save and run the project as a Mule Application.

  2. Open a web browser and enter the below to check the response.

    To store a employee record enter the URL:
    http://localhost:8081/store?id=1&name=David&lname=Malhar&age=10.

    To retrieve a employee record enter the URL:
    http://localhost:8081/retrieve?id=1

    The logger displays the employee record in JSON format in the browser.

  • The object store throws an exception when an attempt is made to overwrite an existing key; this is expected behavior. The object store throws an exception when an attempt to read is made using a key that does not exist in the object store; this too is expected behavior.

  • This example uses a simple in-memory store; to clear the contents of this store, restart Mule runtime.
