Note that WSO2 EI is shipped with the following changes to what is mentioned in this documentation:
repository/samples/directory that includes all Integration profile samples is changed to

This sample demonstrates dual channel messaging through synapse.
For a list of prerequisites, see Prerequisites to Start the ESB Samples.
Building the sample
Start the ESB with the sample 0 configuration. For instructions on starting a sample ESB configuration, see Starting the ESB with a sample configuration.
The operation log keeps running until the server starts, which usually takes several seconds. Wait until the server has fully booted up and displays a message similar to "WSO2 Carbon started in n seconds."
Start the Axis2 server. For instructions on starting the Axis2 server, see Starting the Axis2 server.
Deploy the back-end service SimpleStockQuoteService. For instructions on deploying sample back-end services, see Deploying sample back-end services.
Now you have a running ESB instance and a back-end service deployed. In the next section, we will send a message to the back-end service through the ESB using a sample client.
Executing the sample
This example invokes the
getQuote operation of the
SimpleStockQuoteService using the custom client which uses the Axis2 ServiceClient API with
useSeparateListener set to true, so that the response comes through a different channel than the one that is used to send the request to a callback defined in the client.
The sample client used here is the Stock Quote Client, which can operate in several modes. For further details on this sample client and its operation modes, see Stock Quote Client.
To execute the sample client
Run the following command from the
Analyzing the output
When you execute the client, you will see the dual channel invocation through Synapse into the sample Axis2 server instance, which reports the response back to the client over a different channel.
If you send your client request through TCPmon, you will see that Synapse replies to the client with a HTTP 202 acknowledgment when you send the request. The communication between Synapse and the server happens on a single channel. You will get the response back from Synapse to the client's callback through a different channel, which cannot be observed through TCPmon.
Also note the
wsa:Reply-To header similar to
It is required to engage addressing when using the dual channel invocation since the
wsa:Reply-To header is required.
