I have domain model implemented as an XML schema which I want to use as the message content for the ESB. I want to use JAXB as the Java <-> XML serialization technology as an enterprise standard.
Lets assume that in a Java web service client I have a java object model (based on the domain model) which I populate in the code and which is serialized into XML (e.g. JAXB) to make up message payload.
Can JBoss ESB accomodate this approach? The user's guide discusses the Message, Header and Body interfaces which seems to talk about objects, plugins and I think it can support this.
Yes, you can use whatever mapping technology you wish on the client side.
