  • Sample setup is same as LoadBalance endpoint scenario (#154).
  • Start the Synapse configuration numbered 752: i.e. wso2esb-samples -sn 752
  • Start the Axis2 server and deploy the LoadbalanceFailoverService if not already done

Configuration demonstrates a single endpoint template named 'endpoint_template'. Three endpoint templates are created inside loadbalance endpoint which will point to this template. Note different parameters passed on to the same template ie:- service url and suspend duration as parameters

Invoke the client as follows.

ant loadbalancefailover -Dmode=session -Dtrpurl=http://localhost:8280/services/LBProxy

As in the previous loadbalance samples client console will show loadbalance requests going towards three endpoints created from the same template. Notice differnt suspension times for three services in a failed endpoint scenario as well. (reflects different parameters passed onto the template).
