VeevaVault Connector XML and Maven Support - Mule 4

If you manually code a Mule app in XML either from the Anypoint Studio XML editor or from a text editor, you can get access to the connector in your app by adding reference statements to your XML Mule flow and in the Apache Maven POM file.

You can avoid the manual process described in this topic by using Studio. When you install the connector in Anypoint Studio, Studio automatically populates the XML code with the connector’s namespace and schema location, and adds a dependency to the pom.xml file.

Add a Namespace for the Connector

Paste the following code inside the mule tag of the header of your configuration XML:

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

This example shows how the namespace statements are placed in the XML:

<mule xmlns:veevavault="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/veevavault"
xmlns:ee="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core"
xmlns:http="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http"
xmlns:file="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file"
xmlns="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core"
xmlns:doc="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/documentation"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core/current/mule.xsd
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file/current/mule-file.xsd
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http/current/mule-http.xsd
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core/current/mule-ee.xsd
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/veevavault
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/veevavault/current/mule-veevavault.xsd">

Add a POM File Dependency

The pom.xml Apache Maven file generated by Anypoint Studio contains dependencies for a Mule app. When you code a Mule app manually, include this XML snippet in your POM file to enable access to this connector:

<dependency>
<groupId>org.mule.extension</groupId>
<artifactId>mule-veevavault-connector</artifactId>
<version>x.x.x</version>
<classifier>mule-plugin</classifier>
</dependency>

Verify that the connector version corresponds to the one you are using.

To obtain the most up-to-date pom.xml file information:

  1. Go to Anypoint Exchange.

  2. In Exchange, click Login and supply your Anypoint Platform username and password.

  3. In Exchange, search for hdfs.

  4. Click Dependency Snippets.

Maven Dependencies Information

When creating an app manually from the XML, you need to set up the pom.xml for your project:

	<build>
		<plugins>
			<plugin>
				<groupId>org.mule.tools.maven</groupId>
				<artifactId>mule-maven-plugin</artifactId>
				<version>${mule.maven.plugin.version}</version>
				<extensions>true</extensions>
				<configuration>
					<sharedLibraries>
						<sharedLibrary>
							<groupId>org.json</groupId>
							<artifactId>json</artifactId>
						</sharedLibrary>
					</sharedLibraries>
				</configuration>
			</plugin>
		</plugins>
	</build>
	<repositories>
		<repository>
			<id>anypoint-exchange-v2</id>
			<name>Anypoint Exchange</name>
