Table of Contents


This sample demonstrates how you can setup reusable connection pools for the DBLookup and DB Report mediators.


Building the sample

The XML configuration for this sample is as follows:

Prerequisites: Setting up DataBase and DataSources according to the sample setup guide.

  • Start the Synapse configuration numbered 363: i.e. wso2esb-samples -sn 363
  • Start the Axis2 server and deploy the SimpleStockQuoteService if not already done

Runs the client as follows


This configuration file  synapse_sample_363.xml is available in the <ESB_HOME>/repository/samples directory.

When you go through this configuration, you will see that there are two instances of the dblookup mediator and a single instance of the dbreport mediator. 

To build the sample

  1. Start the ESB with the sample 363 configuration. For instructions on starting a sample ESB configuration, see Starting the ESB with a sample configuration.

    The operation log keeps running until the server starts, which usually takes several seconds. Wait until the server has fully booted up and displays a message similar to "WSO2 Carbon started in n seconds."

  2. Start the Axis2 server. For instructions on starting the Axis2 server, see Starting the Axis2 server.

  3. Deploy the back-end service SimpleStockQuoteService. For instructions on deploying sample back-end services, see Deploying sample back-end services.

Executing the sample

The sample client used here is the Stock Quote Client, which can operate in several modes. For further details on this sample client and its operation modes, see Stock Quote Client.

To execute the sample client

  • Run the following command from the <ESB_HOME>/samples/axis2Client directory.

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


Analyzing the output

If you look at debug log output on the ESB console, you will see the following:

Code Block
INFO LogMediator text = ** Looking up from the Database **

 INFO LogMediator text = Company ID - c1
 INFO LogMediator text = ** Reporting to the Database **


INFO LogMediator text = ** Looking up from the Database **


INFO LogMediator text = Stock price - 183.3635460215262

When you analyze the log, you will understand that the ESB the logs the above output as it reads from and writes to the database.
