Output HTTP event adapter is used to send events to a specific Web service location using POST. 

Configuring output HTTP event adapter

You can configure the output HTTP event adapter using the management console or using a configuration file.

  1. Log in to the product's management console, and click Configure.
  2. Click Output Event Adaptors in the Event Processor Configs menu, and then click Add Output Event Adaptor.

  4. Click Add Event Adaptor.

Configure using a configuration file

Follow the steps below to configure output HTTP event adapter using a configuration file.

  1. Create an XML file with the following output HTTP event adapter configurations. Output event adapter implementation must start with <outputEventAdaptor> as the root element.

    <outputEventAdaptor name="httpEventAdaptor" statistics="disable"
      trace="disable" type="http" xmlns="">
      <property name="">localhost</property>
      <property name="http.proxy.port">8280</property>
  2. Add the XML file to the <PRODUCT_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/outputeventadaptors/ directory. Since hot deployment is supported in the product, you can simply add/remove output event adapter configuration files to deploy/undeploy output event adapters to/from the server.

After an adapter is successfully added, it gets added to the list of adapters displayed under Event Processor Configs in the Configure menu of the product's management console. Click Edit to change its configuration and redeploy it. This opens an XML-based editor allowing you to edit the event adapter configurations from the UI.  Do your modifications and click Update. You can also delete it, enable/disable statistics or enable/disable tracing on it using the provided options in the UI.
