What is ?

But now, we’re bringing Training closer to you! We are excited to announce our new blog series “Training Talks“. After spending some time (and answering many questions) with our Training team, I got to see for myself how awesome our instructors are and wanted to come up with a way of sharing their expertise with our developer community.

Several brainstorming sessions — and coffees— later, I gathered a list of FAQs from the forum and student classes and asked Poornima Sundararam and Ethan Port (AKA our awesome technical instructors) to address them directly through a short video or demo. This is how Training Talks was born. The idea is that these videos will be a short, simple and helpful way of answering your quick and burning questions fast.

Today’s Talk – Episode 1

In this video, you will learn:

  • What is Maven
  • How to import Maven into the latest version of Anypoint Studio using a POM file or a deployable archive

  1. Can you do a video on mule 4.
    The import maven project is now gone. I was told this is not required.
    However, import “Anypoint studio project from file system” does not work for me as expected.

    My personal development process is to use git to clone a project and then import it into my IDE. I do most git operations from the command line.
    I would like to be able to import my project into Anypoint. However, it has various “quirks” and does not actually import but copies the project. This is not what I expect or want as it is a real pain having 2 copies of same project and when manipulating projects you get various “errors”.

    It could simply import the project, keep the same directory name like other importers.
