AS4Web Connector

Properties   Configuration Settings  

The AS4Web Connector adds AS4 receive functionality to MuleSoft.


The AS4Web Connector supports receiving files into BizTalk. Using a simple application-like design, the connector allows you to easily incorporate secure EDI (EDI-INT) exchange into your current e-Business process architecture.

AS4Web Receive Connector

The AS4Web Receive Connector handles incoming push requests (accepts files sent by your partner to you). The AS4Web Receive Connector requires another entity to listen for incoming HTTP requests and to send responses back to the client. An HTTP Listener may be used in conjunction with the AS4Web Receive Connector to create a fully-functional AS4Web server.

In order to use the AS4Web Receive Connector, you must set the TradingPartner and ReceivingPartner properties. It is recommended that you set an MDNSigningCert in order to provide non-repudiation for your AS2 response.

To decrypt incoming messages set DecryptionCert to your private key. To verify the signature of incoming message set SignerCert to your partner's public certificate. To sign receipts sent back to you partner set SigningCert. If a receipt should be sent, set SendReceipt to Yes.

Once the incoming AS4 request has been parsed and verified, the files are submitted to your flow as individual Mule events. Upon successful submission, the connector will generate a receipt as necessary.

Connector Attributes

Aside from generating the receipt, when AS4Web connector finishes processing it will also produce a group of AS4 attributes. AS4RecAttributes is a special attribute consisting of a collection of EDIData entities from the request.

Each item in the collection has its own set of attributes such as EDIProperties, EDISchemaLocation, EDISchemaNamespace, EDISchemaVersion, EDIType and Output. The 'For Each' Scope will allow you to iterate through the collection of EDIData entities and query these attributes. The sample XML configuration is as follows:

		<foreach collection="#[attributes.AS4RecAttributes]">
			<logger  message="#[payload.AS4FromId]"/>

HTTP Listener Configuration

In a typical scenario a HTTP listener is used to receive the original request and send the response because the connector does not have a webserver of its own. The connector will process the request and generate the response, but will rely on the HTTP Listener to relay the response back to the client. In order to configure the HTTP Listener to relay the response to the client, follow the below steps.

In the Mule HTTP Listener's Responses section set the Body to #[attributes.ResponseBody]. Then, add a new header with value 'Content-Type' and value attributes.ResponseHeaders.'Content-Type'.

The corresponding Configuration XML may look like:

<http:response >
				<http:body ><![CDATA[#[attributes.ResponseBody]]]></http:body>
				<http:headers ><![CDATA[#[output applicaton/java
	"Content-Type" : attributes.ResponseHeaders.'Content-Type'
