    ESB will not deploy if external web service is not available.

    Robert Usey Newbie

      I am using SOAPProxy action to pass the message to an external web service.  i.e.:


      <action name="proxy_ws" class="org.jboss.soa.esb.actions.soap.proxy.SOAPProxy">

      <property name="wsdl" value="http://externalhost:8080/external_webservice/ExternalWS?wsdl"/>


      My issue is that the esb will not deploy if the web service is not available.  I get a "org.jboss.soa.esb.listeners.lifecycle.ManagedLifecycleException: Error configuring action processing pipeline" exception.


      Is there any way to get around this because it would be possible in a production environment that has multiple web services in which one would not be available and not under our control.  I would still like to be able to deploy the esb.
