The registry provides a mechanism of creating and storing configuration elements outside the ESB. These Registry contents can be dynamically loaded or modified that will allow runtime modification of the ESB behaviors. The folder structure gives a clear view of the available files and easy access to modifying the files. Once these files are loaded, their content are cached in the ESB for the specified duration, and is updated at the end of the caching period.
The WSO2 Registry is a repository that stores resources in a structured way. Here are some of the features provided by the Registry interface:
- Provides the facility to organize resources into collections.
- Keeps multiple versions of resources.
- Manages social aspects such as rating of resources.
- AtomPub interfaces to publish, view and manage resources from remote or non-Java clients.
