Complex Choice flow in Mule

Complex Choice flow in Mule

Content-based routing is used to examine messages and route them to the correct channel or destination depending on a message's content. We use content-based routing when we want to route messages to the right destination.

Choice Flow Control
In Mule, the choice flow control is used to achieve content-based routing where routing will be done based on the message content, like inbound properties, flow variables, and payload. A choice router will always choose only one route. If no route matches, then the default route is used. In a choice router, we use the MEL expression to specify the path for the message.

The choice flow control adds conditional programming to a flow; it is similar to an if/else code block in Java.

Here we are using choice flow control in mule 3 in Anypoint studio 6.2

Here we are routing payload based on 3 parameters id,name and address

Below is the screenshot of choice router conditions :

HTTP Listener Configuration :

path : /testchoice

Below is the flow of choice flow control

URL : http://localhost:8085/api/testchoice
method : POST
