The new FTP and SFTP Connectors

sftp ftp mulesoft connector anypoint

We recently released new connectors for FTP and SFTP connectivity in Mule 4, now available in Anypoint Exchange. Even though FTP and SFTP are two very different protocols, we crafted these connectors to be practically identical, providing an easy and consistent experience. As a result, the same use cases are addressed in a similar way in both protocols.

And it gets better! Remember the new file connector we discussed a while ago?

Reliable Acquisition using the Sftp connector

motif

A high-reliability application (one that has zero tolerance for message loss) not only requires the underlying ESB to be reliable, but that reliability needs to extend to individual connections. If your application uses a transactional transport such as JMS, VM, or DB, reliable messaging is ensured by the built-in support for transactions in the transport. This means, for example, that you can configure a transaction on a JMS inbound endpoint that makes sure messages are only removed from the JMS server when the transaction is committed.
