Example: Reference Multiple Inputs

This example takes three different input JSON files, one in the payload, another in a variable and the third in an attribute. All of them are parts of the same Mule Event. The payload contains an array of book objects, the variable has a set of currency exchange rates, and the attribute specifies a year to be used as a query.

The example uses the following:

  • filter to leave out the books that are older than the date specified in the incoming attribute.

  • map to go through each book in the incoming array. Another map function then goes through the currencies in the variable to calculates the book’s price in each one. A third map function lists out all authors of a book in case there are more than one.

  • @ to define an XML attribute in the output.
