VM Connector in Mule with Example

  VM Connector in Mule with Example





  • The Virtual Machine (VM) connector handles intra-app and inter-app communication through asynchronous queues that can be transient or persistent.
  • Transient queues are faster than persistent queues, but they are not reliable in the case of a system crash.
  • Persistent queues are slower but reliable.
  • When running on a single instance, persistent queues work by serializing and storing the contents on the disk.


When to Use the VM Connector : 
  • When you want to pass messages from one flow to another through a queuing mechanism, instead of using <flow-ref /> directly.
  • When you want to distribute work across a cluster.
  • When you want to communicate with different apps that are running in the same Mule domain.
  • When you need simple queuing that does not justify a full JMS broker.
flow of VM Connector : 


VM connector configuration of test_vmFlow : 





VM connector configuration of test_vmFlow1 :




Note that Queue path should be same in both VM connectors.
flow variable of first flow can not be accessed in second flow because of transport barrier.
