  • a Security Proxy.

To get started, follow the SOAP and REST tutorials or have a look at the examples or the FAQ.

Samples

Hosting virtual REST services is easy:

<serviceProxy port="80">
    <path>/restnames/</path>
    <target host="www.thomas-bayer.com" />
</serviceProxy>

SOAP proxies configure themselves by analysing WSDL:

<soapProxy wsdl="http://thomas-bayer.com/axis2/services/BLZService?wsdl">
</soapProxy>

Add features like logging or XML Schema validation against a WSDL document:

<soapProxy wsdl="http://thomas-bayer.com/axis2/services/BLZService?wsdl">
    <validator />
    <log />
</soapProxy>
