Note that WSO2 EI is shipped with the following changes to what is mentioned in this documentation:

  • <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/samples/ directory that includes all Integration profile samples is changed to <EI_HOME>/samples/service-bus/.
  • <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/samples/resources/ directory that includes all artifacts related to the Integration profile samples is changed to <EI_HOME>/samples/service-bus/resources/.


This sample demonstrates how to use scripts in mediation using the Nashorn support of the Script mediator. The Script Mediator is an extension of the ESB profile.


Follow the steps below before starting these sample configurations.

  1. Start WSO2 EI with the sample 908 configuration. For instructions on starting a sample configuration, see Starting 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."
  2. Start the Axis2 server. For instructions on starting the Axis2 server, see Starting the Axis2 server.
  3. 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 WSO2 EI instance and a back-end service deployed.

Building the Sample

The XML configuration for this sample, which is available in the <EI_HOME>/samples/service-bus/synapse_sample_908.xml file is as follows: 

<!-- Introduction to the script mediator using nashornJs scripts -->
<definitions xmlns="">

<localEntry key="stockquoteScript" src="file:samples/service-bus/resources/script/stockquoteTransformNashorn.js"/>

<sequence name="main">
<!-- transform the custom quote request into a standard quote request expected by the service -->
<script language="nashornJs" key="stockquoteScript" function="transformRequest"/>
<address uri="http://localhost:9000/services/SimpleStockQuoteService"/>
<!-- transform the standard response back into the custom format the client expects -->
<script language="nashornJs" key="stockquoteScript" function="transformResponse"/>

The content of <EI_HOME>/samples/service-bus/resources/script/stockquoteTransformNashorn.js, which is referred from the above synapse_sample_908.xml file is as follows:

function transformRequest(mc) {
var symbol = "IBM";
"<m:getQuote xmlns:m=\"http://services.samples\">"
+ "<m:request>"
+ "<m:symbol>"+ symbol +"</m:symbol>"
+ "</m:request>"
+ "</m:getQuote>");

function transformResponse(mc) {

var payload = mc.getPayloadXML();

var expression = "//*[local-name()='symbol']";
var xpath = mc.getXpathResult(expression);
var nodeList = xpath.selectNodes(payload);
var symbol = nodeList.get(0).getText();

expression = "//*[local-name()='last']";
xpath = mc.getXpathResult(expression);
nodeList = xpath.selectNodes(payload);
var price = nodeList.get(0).getText();

"<m:CheckPriceResponse xmlns:m=\"http://services.samples/xsd\">"
+ "<m:Code>"+ symbol +"</m:Code>"
+ "<m:Price>"+ price +"</m:Price>"
+ "</m:CheckPriceResponse>");

Navigate to the <EI_HOME>/samples/service-bus/synapse_sample_908.xml file and execute the ant command to build this sample.

Executing the Sample

Navigate to the <EI_HOME>/samples/axis2Client directory and execute the following command to use the stock quote client to issue a custom quote as follows.

ant stockquote -Daddurl=http://localhost:9000/services/SimpleStockQuoteService -Dtrpurl=http://localhost:8280/ -Dmode=customquote

For further details on this sample client and its operation modes, see Stock Quote Client.

Analyzing the output

This sample is similar to Sample 350, but this uses Nashorn JavaScript and XPath Queries to do the transformation. The stockquoteTransformNashorn.js script used this sample has two functions, transformRequest() and transformResponse(). The Synapse configuration defined in the synapse_sample_908.xml file uses the function attribute to specify which function should be invoked. 

The ESB profile uses the Script mediator and the transformRequest() JavaScript function to convert the custom request to a standard quote request. Subsequently, the received response is transformed and sent back to the client.
