    Http listener client side - esb clients

    Johan Kumps Newbie

      Hi all,

      I've been implementing the http endpoint as a org.jboss.soa.esb.listeners.HttpInvocationListener using JBoss Remoting. As such a http request (POST) can be handled by an actionClass you configure. This works like the pollers already in the project.

      Now I'm thinking of the client side. How are we going to implement the client side of this? When using a directory poller it is simple, the OS is the client. Just put a file in the right directory and it will be handled by the ESB.

      I'm thinking of implementing a EsbClient class wich can be used to send events to a certain endpoint url to be handled by the esb. What do you guys think of this approach.

      Next to this I think we should be able to 'chain' our endpoints/services together. Are we going tho use JBPM for this? Or are we going to implement 'routers' for this like Mule is doing?

      I suggest we start a brainstorming thread about this.

      Kind regards to you all,
      Johan
