Output SOAP event adapter is an internal event adapter, which comes with WSO2 products. It sends SOAP events over Thrift using  HTTP and HTTPS to external servers, which can receive XML messages.

Configuring output SOAP event adapter

You can configure output SOAP event adapter using the management console or using a configuration file.

Follow the instructions below to configure output SOAP event adapter using the management console. This deploys the event adapter in the <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/deployment/ server/outputeventadaptors/ directory.

  1. Log in to the product's management console, and click Configure.
  2. Click Output Event Adaptors in the Event Processor Configs menu,  and then click Add Output Event Adaptor.

Configure using a configuration file

Follow the instructions below to to configure output SOAP event adapter using a configuration file.

  1. Create an XML file with the following output SOAP event adapter configurations. Output event adapter implementation must start with <outputEventAdaptor> as the root element.

    <outputEventAdaptor name="soapOutputEventAdaptor" statistics="disable"
    trace="disable" type="soap" xmlns=""/>
  2. Add the XML file to the <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/outputeventadaptors/ directory. Since hot deployment is supported in the product, you can simply add/remove output event adapter configuration files to deploy/undeploy output event adapters to/from the server.

After an adapter is successfully added, it gets added to the list of adapters displayed under Event Processor Configs in the Configure menu of the product's management console. Click Edit to change its configuration and redeploy it. This opens an XML-based editor allowing you to edit the event adapter configurations from the UI.  Do your modifications and click  Update . You can also delete it, enable/disable statistics or enable/disable tracing on it using the provided options in the UI.

Configuring output SOAP event adapter message properties

The configured output event adapters are used in event formatters. With output event adapter message properties, event formatters are able to extract data from event streams and format the output events. Message properties specific to output event adapters of the soap type can be configured as follows.
  1. Log into the CEP Management Console. For detailed instructions, see Running the Product.
  2. Click the Configure tab and then click Event Formatters to open the Available Event Formatters page.
