This sample demonstrates an introduction to error handling with the "fault" sequence. It sends a message from a sample client to a back-end service through the ESB through 3 mediation options as: success scenario, a failure scenario without error handling and a failure scenario with proper error handling.


Refer to Prerequisites section in ESB Samples Setup pageSee Installation Prerequisites.

Building the Sample

1. Start the ESB with sample 4 configuration using the instructions given in Starting Sample ESB Configurations.


1. Run the following ant command from <ESB_HOME>/samples/axis2Client directory to trigger a sample message to the back-end service.


Code Block
ant stockquote -Daddurl=http://localhost:9000/services/SimpleStockQuoteService -Dtrpurl=http://localhost:8280/ -Dsymbol=IBM

When the IBM stock quote is requested, the configuration routes it to the defined inline endpoint, which routes the message to the SimpleStockQuoteService on the local Axis2 instance. Therefore, a valid response message is shown at the client.
