Fixing the Import Problem in Mule ESB

If you are programming with the MuleESB suite you are may be forced with the problem, that it is not able to find imports or throws "ClassNotFoundExceptions" after trying to compile your source code. Even after checking the class/build path and adding every jar to them, the problem still exists.

Using Maven to Compile those Projects

The solution to that problem is quite simple, you just have to install maven (if you haven't done it already) and then compile the projects with e.g. "mvn eclipse:eclipse".

In the beginning, it takes maven approx. 30 minutes to download all dependencies and required files but then is able to compile it without any problems..
