In service mediation, the ESB exposes an endpoint that accepts messages from clients on behalf of an external Web service. Typically, proxy services are used to receive and mediate these messages before they are proxied to the actual Web service. This allows WSO2 ESB to expose a Web service already available in one transport over a different transport, or expose a Web service that uses one schema or WSDL as a Web service that uses a different schema or WSDL.
WSO2 ESB provides many tools to manage Web services that are deployed.
