Demonstrate how to use the XQuery mediator for message content transformations


  • Deploy the SimpleStockQuoteService in the sample Axis2 server and start Axis2
  • Start Synapse using the configuration numbered 390 (repository/conf/sample/synapse_sample_390.xml)
    Unix/Linux: sh -sample 390
    Windows: synapse.bat -sample 390

Executing the Client

This example uses the XQuery mediator to perform transformations. This sample behaves the same as sample 8 and the only difference is that this sample uses XQuery instead of XSLT for transformation.

Send a custom quote request to Synapse as follows.

ant stockquote -Daddurl=http://localhost:8280/services/StockQuoteProxy -Dmode=customquote

Request is transformed into a standard stock quote request by the XPery mediator. The XQuery definition is loaded through a local entry. The response from Axis2 is transformed back to a custom quote response. In this case the XQuery definition is loaded from the registry.
