Sample 151: Custom Sequences and Endpoints with Proxy Services

Demonstrate how to use predefined endpoints and sequences in a proxy service


  • Deploy the SimpleStockQuoteService in the sample Axis2 server and start Axis2
  • Start Synapse using the configuration numbered 151 (repository/conf/sample/synapse_sample_151.xml)
    Unix/Linux: sh -sample 151
    Windows: synapse.bat -sample 151

Executing the Client

This configuration creates two proxy services. The first proxy service 'StockQuoteProxy1' uses the sequence named 'proxy_1' to process incoming messages and the sequence named 'out' to process outgoing responses. The second proxy service, 'StockQuoteProxy2' is set to directly forward messages to the endpoint named 'proxy_2_endpoint' without any mediation.

You can send a stock quote request to each of these proxy services and receive the reply generated by the actual service hosted on the Axis2 server instance.

ant stockquote -Daddurl=http://localhost:8280/services/StockQuoteProxy1
ant stockquote -Daddurl=http://localhost:8280/services/StockQuoteProxy2
