The Class Mediator creates an instance of a custom specified class and sets it as a mediator. The class must implement the org.apache.synapse.api.Mediator interface. If any properties are specified, the corresponding setter methods are once invoked on the class during initialization.

   <property name="string" value="literal">
    (either literal or XML child)

UI Configuration

Class Name - The name of the class. You have to give the qualified name of the class and click on the "Load Class" button.


You can configure the Mediator using XML. Click on "switch to source view" in the "Mediator" window.


<definitions xmlns="">

        <sequence name="fault">
                <code value="tns:Receiver" xmlns:tns=""/>
                <reason value="Mediation failed."/>

        <sequence name="main" onError="fault">
                    <endpoint name="stockquote">
                        <address uri="http://localhost:9000/services/SimpleStockQuoteService"/>
                <class name="samples.mediators.SimpleClassMediator">
                    <property name="varible1" value="10"/>
                    <property name="varible2" value="5"/>


In this configuration, ESB hands over the request message to the specified endpoint, which sends it to the Axis2 server running on port 9000. But the response message is passed through the Class Mediator before sending it back to the client. Two parameters named varible1 and varible2 are passed to the instance mediator implementation class (SimpleClassMediator). Look at the following sample Class Mediator. Note how the SynapseMessageContext and to the full Synapse API in there.
