Section Summary: OpenSpaces Mule ESB integration allows you to use the Space as a Mule external transport, replace Mule VM transport with transport over the Space, enhances the Mule SEDA model, and can be packaged and run as a Processing Unit.
OpenSpaces Mule ESB support is available with Mule version 2.0 GA and onwards.
OpenSpaces comes with comprehensive support for Mule 2.0. It allows you to use the Space as a Mule external transport, enabling receiving and dispatching of POJO messages over the Space.
An additional transport called os-queue allows you to replace Mule VM transport with highly available inter VM transport over the Space.
Mule Event Container Transport — OpenSpaces event container transport uses event components that allow you to send and receive POJO messages over the Space using Mule.
Mule Processing Unit — The Mule Processing Unit allows you to run Mule within a Processing Unit, thus leveraging all of the Processing Unit and SLA-driven container capabilities.
Mule Queue Provider — The OpenSpaces queue provider is used for internal space-based communication between services managed by Mule.
Mule SEDA Model — OpenSpaces Mule SEDA model allows you to define services that are aware of the space mode they are working with; and to store SEDA queues in a virtualized space queue instead of Mule's default VM queues.
