Objective: POX to SOAP conversion

Following is the XML configuration for the sample:

<definitions xmlns="">
   <sequence name="main">
       <!-- filtering of messages with XPath and regex matches -->
       <filter source="get-property('To')" regex=".*/StockQuote.*">
           <header name="Action" value="urn:getQuote"/>
                   <address uri="http://localhost:9000/services/SimpleStockQuoteService" format="soap11"/>


  • Start the Synapse configuration numbered 50: i.e. -sn 50
  • Start the Axis2 server and deploy the SimpleStockQuoteService if not already done.

Execute the 'ant stockquote' specifying that the request should be a REST request as follows:

ant stockquote -Dtrpurl=http://localhost:8280/services/StockQuote -Drest=true

This example shows a http REST request (as shown below) being transformed into a SOAP request and forwarded to the stock quote service.

POST /services/StockQuote HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/xml; charset=UTF-8;action="urn:getQuote";
SOAPAction: urn:getQuote
User-Agent: Axis2
Transfer-Encoding: chunked

<m0:getQuote xmlns:m0="http://services.samples/xsd">
