Issues Impacting Migration

Issue Description

EE-7092

MMC agent was removed from the Mule distribution. Please use the Runtime Manager Agent (ARM) instead.

MULE-8817

Spring Framework was upgraded from 4.1.9 to 4.3.25, and Spring Security was upgrated from 4.2.3 to 4.2.13. Minor incompatibilities are possible in the following components:

  • The getConnectionFactory() method in JmsConnector now returns a DefaultXAConnectionFactoryWrapper, regardless of the ConnectionFactory implementation in use. If you depend on this, use the ConnectionFactory interface to avoid problems.

  • The CxfInboundMessageProcessor no longer includes a newline character in the response stream by default. This might cause problems if you are writing the raw response to an OutputStream in a custom implementation.

  • For more details on the migration from Spring 4.1.x to 4.3.x, see Upgrading to Spring Framework 4.x.
