ceived lately a lot of questions regarding Community Edition of Mule ESB in version 4. Therefore I have decided to write a couple of articles about this . First of all MuleSoft has rebranded community version into the Mule 4 Kernel. In this article I had in mind to show, how to write a simple application using IntelliJ IDEA community IDE. However this is impossible yet. You will see only how to setup Kernel runtime and what is going on with IntelliJ plugin for newest Mule Runtime. In the next article I will use Anypoint Studio instead.
