Objective: Demonstrate the dual channel invocation with Synapse proxy services.

<definitions xmlns="">
    <proxy name="StockQuoteProxy">
                <address uri="http://localhost:9000/services/SimpleStockQuoteService">
                    <enableAddressing separateListener="true"/>
        <publishWSDL uri="file:repository/samples/resources/proxy/sample_proxy_1.wsdl"/>
  • Start the Synapse configuration numbered 155: i.e. -sn 155
  • Start the Axis2 server and deploy the SimpleStockQuoteService if not already done.

This sample shows the action of the dual channel invocation within client and Synapse as well as within synapse and the actual server.


If you want to enable dual channel invocation, you need to set the separateListener attribute to true of the enableAddressing element of the endpoint.

Execute the stock quote client by requesting for a stock quote on a dual channel from the Proxy Service as follows:

ant stockquote -Daddurl=http://localhost:8280/services/StockQuoteProxy -Dmode=dualquote

In the above example, the request received is forwarded to the sample service hosted on Axis2 and the endpoint specifies to enable addressing and do the invocation over a dual channel. If you observe this message flow by using a TCPmon, you could see that on the channel you send the request to synapse the response has been written as an HTTP 202 Accepted, where as the real response from synapse will come over a different channel which cannot be observed unless you use tcpdump to dump all the TCP level messages.

At the same time you can observe the behavior of the invocation between synapse and the actual Axis2 service, where you can see a 202 Accepted message being delivered to synapse as the response to the request. The actual response will be delivered to synapse over a different channel.
