    You have not uploaded the main file for 27 July article (Spring ,hibernate and mongo db).
    Please upload that also if you have that.
    I hope you will respond soon.

    thanks for replying, what i want to say is that when we ll run these files on IDE they ll ask for a main file which is not there as a java main class, but now i have created that main file and the project is working fine just with the warnings such as :
    log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.springframework.core.env.StandardEnvironment).
    log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
    log4j:WARN See for more info.
    i am running it on netbeans IDE and your “&quot” thing was giving some errors in one file at four places.

    would you please let me know about these warnings and how to fix it.

    • Pascal Alma says:

      The warnings means the logging framework Log$J isn’t initialized well. To do so, add a file name ‘’ to your /src/main/resources/ directory. in the file put the following:

      # default properties to initialise log4j
      log4j.rootLogger=INFO, A1
      log4j.appender.A1.layout.ConversionPattern=[%d{MM-dd HH:mm:ss}] %-5p %c{1} [%t]: %m%n

      Save it and the file should be put on your classpath when you run your class.

        One thing i want to know that whether .properties file, the IDE will recognize it or not because in my case with net-beans its not doing that. And one more thing can i put this file in / src /main/config etc. and your above solution is not helping me coming out of that

      • Abhinandan says:

    Hi Pascal,
    I am using Mule 3.1.2 and have a secured secured service proxy defined in Mule.

    I need to consume a webservice having 1.2 as soapversion. I believe mule by default uses 1.1 as soapversion. I am aware that an attribute was introduced in Mule 3.2.
    Is there a way so that we can force it to use soapversion 1.2 without having to upgrade the mule to 3.2.
    Please suggest.

  4. MuleCoder says:

    Thank you Pascal a lot.for quick reply. Yes this issue is same as Mule defect/enhancement 5961. I tried implementing CXF interceptor but it didn’t work.
    Yeah i agree, it seems there is only option left to upgrade the Mule from 3.1.2 to 3.3,x version. do you know if there is any backward compatibility compatibility issue in Mule if i recommend up-gradation from 3.1.2 to 3.3.x.

    Thanks again for help!!

    Best Regards,
    Mule Coder

  5. MuleCoder says:

    Hello Pascal, Hope you are doing well! We need to validate the SOAP service request and response through schematron file. Do you know if there is a way i can apply schematron validations in mule proxy service? I was searching on Google and didn’t find any document around it. Thanks for help!

  6. MuleCoder says:

    Thank you Pascal for quick response. I will try this option.

  8. Hi,

    Please, could you help me , how do I confirm that messages routed via mule jms pass-through-router is not lost ?

    Basically, we have a mule jms pass-through-router taking a message from one Q1 and passing on to Q2 based on some regex. All good.
    However, if the client which is reading the Q2 is not available, the messages are lost.

    If I send messages directly to Q2, the messages are persistent.

    Can you help how do I check this scenario while messages are getting lost from one queue to another while using mule jms pass-through-router ?

    Hi Pascal,

    just a comment about (comments are closed there)

    using ActiveMq 5.10 I’m hitting the same issue the other person reported (can’t lock file). There are a couple different steps needed:
    1) the generated instanceX\bin\instanceX.bat files are incomplete, I had to add

    set ACTIVEMQ_CONF=”/instanceB/conf”
    set ACTIVEMQ_DATA=”/instanceB/data”

    2) there are a few more connectors to update in activemq.xml (stomp, mqtt and ws). I had to specify different ports there

    3) to start, now use “instanceX\bin\instanceX.bat start”

    Besides that, thanks a lot for the excellent article!
