WSS Module XML and Maven Support - Mule 4

If you manually code a Mule application in XML either from the Studio XML editor or a text editor, you must perform the following actions to get access to a connector:

Add the namespace for the connector to your XML flow.

Add dependency information to your Maven pom.xml file.

In the Studio visual editor, when you drag a connector from the Mule Palette to the canvas, Studio automatically populates the XML code with the connector namespace and schema location.

Add a Namespace for the Connector

If you manually code the Mule application in the Studio XML editor or another text editor, paste the following code inside the <mule> tag in your XML configuration:

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

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

<mule
	xmlns:wss="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/wss"
	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/wss
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/wss/current/mule-wss.xsd">

</mule>

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.modules</groupId>
        <artifactId>mule-wss-module</artifactId>
        <version>1.0.0</version>
        <classifier>mule-plugin</classifier>
    </dependency>

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 WSS Module.

  4. Select the connector.

  5. Click Dependency Snippets near the upper right of the screen.
