This schema library includes a simple server framework for SOAP and RESTful web services.
The server framework contains utility methods to receive SOAP and RESTful messages, test the requests for validity and send a reply.
Included in the server framework are utilities to manipulate and check namespace aware XML schema. You can easily convert your JiBX object tree to XML or DOM. You can convert your XML using XSL Transformation. You can also search your XML trees using XPATH.
Having all these tools available make the server library the perfect toolbox to create your server test cases. The server library also has a utility that can read XML message files from the local classpath storage and use these messages as replies.
For more detailed example, check out my blog here.
In this example you will install a simple web service that uses SOAP and REST protocols. This web service implements the opentravel.org hotel res service. When you send a HotelRes request this service echos a HotelRes reply
The project source code for this example is in our repository here: https://github.com/jibx/schema-library/tree/master/org.opentravel/_2012B/opentravel-ws/opentravel-hotel-ws-test-service.
This example uses three services:
Step 1: Download Apache karaf and start it up.
tar zxvf apache-karaf-x.x.x.tar.gz cd apache-karaf-x.x.x bin/karaf
Step 2: Add and run the JiBX OSGi bundles in this example.
features:install obr obr:addurl http://www.jibx.org/repository/repository.xml obr:start -d org.jibx.schema.org.opentravel._2012B.hotel.ws.test.service obr:start -d org.jibx.schema.org.opentravel._2012B.hotel.ws.rest obr:start -d org.jibx.schema.org.opentravel._2012B.hotel.ws.soap
Step 3: You will find the wsdl file here: http://localhost:8092/soap/hotel?wsdl.
You will find the RESTful web services located at http://localhost:8092/rest/hotel/function, where function is the action such as search, res, resmodify, etc.
