Mule 4 Kernel – IntelliJ IDEA

Mule 4 Kernel – IntelliJ IDEA

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.

Error Handling simplified – Try Scope

Errors occurs all the time. All you can do is to implement error handling. In this article I will describe how to use introduced layer of abstraction in exceptions area. Prior to Mule 4, developer only could access raw Java exception as Mule is a Java based ESB. This lead to situation where you, as a developer, needed analyse documentation to find exact exception that you would like to handle. Now an Error concept was introduced.
