Traits are functions in RAML which defines common properties for HTTP methods, can be declared once and used at multiple places by keyword “is“. traits should be defined in a separate file and import it into the main RAML to follow Best practices.

ApiKit router plays a key role in mapping the resources(RAML) and Mule flows. Any Request entering into mule app through the inbound will hit ApiKit router and the request will be validated according to the RAML description.

Success Requests will be mapped to their corresponding flow and Bad requests will be mapped to their corresponding exception flow and respond back with appropriate HTTP Status code.

4.  What are the parameters defined for methods in RAML?
