Class Endpoints:Sample

In my older post , I mentioned that Class endpoint(ie: custom endpoints) feature is available in later versions of synapse, which is branched in WSO2 svn location.
Since, there are number of usecases to implement the class endpoint, i thought to write a simple sample using class endpoints.

All message sending logic is handled in the class in synapse core. For instance, if we want to have our custom client which to do its own message sending  logic,we could write this type of endpoints.

In the following sample, i have defined an Custom Class Endpoint(ie:UAddressEndpoint) which extends the Synapse.AbstarctEndpoint class to define its own endpoint logic.

I read a parameter (this parameter ,we provide from endpoint configuration) from registry , where i saved my custom endpoint configuration . From that endpoint configuration i read  all endpoint related parameters, and use that as an Endpoint and have a separate   logic to send out message,

package org.wso2.carbon.endpoint.uep;

import org.apache.axis2.AxisFault;
import org.apache.commons.logging.Log;
import org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory;
import org.apache.synapse.MessageContext;
import org.apache.synapse.endpoints.AbstractEndpoint;
import org.wso2.carbon.endpoint.uep.util.UEndpointUtil;
import org.wso2.carbon.unifiedendpoint.core.UnifiedEndpoint;

 * ESB specific UAddressEndpoint class,extended from synapse Abstractendpoint.
public class UAddressEndpoint extends AbstractEndpoint {

* The registry location of the uep configuration,where it is stored
* Eg:conf:/repositoryuepTestEP.xml
private String uepConfigurationPath;

private static final Log log = LogFactory.getLog(UAddressEndpoint.class);

public UAddressEndpoint() {


* Getter and Setter of the parameter which we define at the classendpoint
* configuration.
* eg:
* name="uepConfigurationPath">conf:/repositoryuepTestEP.xml

         * @param uepConfiguration
public void setUepConfigurationPath(String uepConfigurationPath) {
this.uepConfigurationPath = uepConfigurationPath;

public String getUepConfigurationPath() {

return uepConfigurationPath;

* Override the AbstractEndpoint.send(). Use the UEP handler to
* get endpoint specific
* Configurations

public void send(MessageContext synMessageContext) {
if (log.isDebugEnabled()) {
log.debug("Executing UAddressEndpoint Sender ");

try {

UAddressEndpointDefinition addressEPDefinition = new UAddressEndpointDefinition();
UEndpointUtil uepUtil = new UEndpointUtil();

UnifiedEndpoint unifiedEndpoint = uepUtil.getUnifiedEndpoint(uepConfigurationPath);

UEndpointAxis2MEPClient.send(unifiedEndpoint, getDefinition(), synMessageContext);
} catch (AxisFault e) {
log.error("Error in executing the message", e);


In the above sample,if you notice that I have my own class(ie: UEndpointAxis2MEPClient) to handle the message sending logic.

If we want to use this type of class endpoint, in synapse configuration we have to define our custom endpoint like this;

<endpoint name="CustomEndpoint">
                    <class name="org.wso2.carbon.endpoint.uep.UAddressEndpoin">
                                 <parameter name="uepConfigurationPath">conf:/repositoryuepTestEP.xml</parameter>

Retrieving Axis2MessageContext from SynapseMessagecontext

Some times, we need to access Axis2 MessageContext in the sequence flow, using a custom class mediator.
Here is how you can access it;

public boolean mediate(MessageContext synapseMessageContext) {

org.apache.axis2.context.MessageContext axis2MsgContext;
axis2MsgContext = ((Axis2MessageContext) synapseMessageContext).getAxis2MessageContext();
