I had a quick look here:

But was wondering why a name wasn't specified as it was for ServiceMix?

Ditto P100-101 : Listing 3-18
Ditto P102 : Listing 3-20.
Why didn't you put comment at top of each listing to signify Listing#/artifact name? This would be far simpler to maintain from you perspective and follow from mine. smilie

Re: P93:What's name of Mule config file/Listing 3-15/3-18/3-20?
3.18, 3.19 and 3.20 are all part of the following file:

workspaceworkspace-mulemule esourceschapter3mule-config.xml

3.15 is not included in the source code, but there are a lot of examples using this JMS configuration.

Let me know if you have the same question about other listings.

Best regards,

Cheers for feedback this helps a lot.

When you are learning something new it really helps when you have either a table of listings and artifact names. Something akin to 4.2 with Listing numbers alongside.

If a table summary was at start or end of each chapter or even in the appendices it would really help. Makes book a better reference in process.(or the comment idea). (Or host as web page somewhere)

XML is a different beast to something like a Java class or interface where the name of the first line of code gives some indication of the artifact name.
So the reconciliation process is more painful with XML.
I've found this problem a lot when initially reading books on Spring too.
