Table of Contents


This sample demonstrates how one way message bridging from JMS to HTTP can be done using the inbound JMS endpoint.


  • Download and set up Apache ActiveMQ. Instructions can be found in section Installation Prerequisites.  
  • Copy the following client libraries from from the <AMQ_HOME>/lib directory to the <ESB_HOME>/repository/components/lib directory directory.  

             ActiveMQ 5.8.0 and above  
      • activemq-broker-5.8.0.jar
      • activemq-client-5.8.0.jar
      • geronimo-jms_1.1_spec-1.1.1.jar
      • geronimo-j2ee-management_1.1_spec-1.0.1.jar
      • hawtbuf-1.9.jar  

               Earlier version of ActiveMQ


      • activemq-core-5.5.1.jar

      • geronimo-j2ee-management_1.0_spec-1.0.jar

      • geronimo-jms_1.1_spec-1.1.1.jar

  • Start the Axis2 server and deploy the SimpleStockQuoteService if not already done.
  • Start the Synapse configuration numbered 901: -sn 901

Building the sample

The XML configuration for this sample is as follows:

Code Block

This example invokes the one-way placeOrder operation on the SimpleStockQuoteService using the Axis2 ServiceClient.fireAndForget() API at the client. To test this, use ant -Dmode=placeorder... and you will notice the one way JMS message flowing through ESB into the sample Axis2 server instance over HTTP, and Axis2 acknowledging it with a HTTP 202 Accepted response.

Code Block
ant stockquote -Dmode=placeorder -Dtrpurl="jms:/JMStoHTTPStockQuoteProxy?transport.jms.ConnectionFactoryJNDIName=QueueConnectionFactory& <definitions xmlns="">
   <registry provider="org.wso2.carbon.mediation.registry.WSO2Registry">

         <parameter name="transport.jms.ContentTypeProperty=Content-Type&transport.jms.DestinationType=queue"
Code Block
SimpleStockQuoteService :: Accepted order for : 7482 stocks of IBM at $ 169.27205579038733

The second example shows how ESB can be made to respond with a HTTP 202 Accepted response to a request received. The Proxy Service simply logs the message received and acknowledges it. On the ESB console you could see the logged message, and if TCPMon was used at the client, you would see the 202 Accepted response sent back to the client from ESB.

Code Block
ant stockquote -Dmode=placeorder -Dtrpurl=http://localhost:8280/services/OneWayProxy
Code Block
HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted
Content-Type: text/xml; charset=UTF-8
SOAPAction: "urn:placeOrder"
Date: Sun, 06 May 2007 17:20:19 GMT
Server: Synapse-HttpComponents-NIO
Transfer-Encoding: chunked

         <parameter name="transport.jms.ConnectionFactoryType">queue</parameter>
   <sequence name="request" onError="fault">
            <address format="soap12" uri="http://localhost:9000/services/SimpleStockQuoteService"/>

This configuration file synapse_sample_901.xml is available in the <ESB_HOME>/repository/samples directory.

To build the sample

  1. Start the ESB with the sample 901 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

To execute the sample client

  • Log on to the ActiveMQ console using the http://localhost:8161/admin url.
  • Browse the queue ordersQueue listening via the above endpoint.
  • Add a new message with the following content to the queue:

    Code Block
    <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="" xmlns:wsa="">
        	<m0:getQuote xmlns:m0="http://services.samples"> 

Analyzing the output

You will see that the JMS endpoint gets the message from the queue and sends it to the stock quote service.
