Apache Axis2's local transport implementation is used to make fast, in-VM service calls and transfer data within. The transport does not have a receiver implementation. The following class implements the sender API:
To use this transport, configure an endpoint with the
local:// prefix. For example, to make an in-VM call to the HelloService, use
local://HelloService. Note that the local transport cannot be used to send REST API calls, which require the HTTP/S transports.
By default, WSO2 provides CarbonLocalTransportSender and CarbonLocalTransportReceiver, which are used for internal communication among Carbon components and are not suitable for service invocation. To enable the local transport for service invocation, follow these steps.
1. In the carbon.xml file at location <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf, an endpoint is available as follows by default.
Replace it with
2. In the axis2.xml file at location <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/axis2/axis2.xml, there is a transport sender and receiver named 'local' specified as follows in two different places:
Remove both these lines and add following line.
