Apache Axis2's local transport implementation is used to make fast, in-VM service calls and transfer data within proxy services. The transport does not have a receiver implementation. The following class implements the sender API:

  • org.apache.axis2.transport.local.NonBlockingLocalTransportSender

To use this transport, configure an endpoint with the local:// prefix. For example, to make an in-VM call to the HelloService, use local://HelloService. Note that the local transport cannot be used to send REST API calls, which require the HTTP/S transports. 

Configuring the Local Transport

By default, WSO2 provides CarbonLocalTransportSender and CarbonLocalTransportReceiver, which are used for internal communication among Carbon components and are not suitable for service invocation. To enable the local transport for service invocation, follow these steps.

1. In the carbon.xml file at location <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf, an endpoint is available as follows by default.

Code Block

Replace it with

Code Block

2. In the axis2.xml file at location <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/conf/axis2/axis2.xml, there is a transport sender and receiver named 'local' specified as follows in two different places:

Code Block
<transportReceiver name="local" class="org.wso2.carbon.core.transports.local.CarbonLocalTransportReceiver"/>

<transportSender name="local" class="org.wso2.carbon.core.transports.local.CarbonLocalTransportSender"/>

Remove both these lines and add following line.

Code Block
<transportSender name="local" class="org.apache.axis2.transport.local.NonBlockingLocalTransportSender"/>
