A SOAP proxy can be deployed on front of a SOAP Web Service. It conceals the server and offers the same interface as the target server to its clients.

Can be used in

spring:beans, router


				<soapProxy name="string" 
					<path />?
					<ssl />?
					<localhost />?
Listing 1: serviceProxy Syntax


				<soapProxy wsdl="http://www.thomas-bayer.com/axis2/services/BLZService?wsdl">
					<soapStackTraceFilter />
					<validator />
Listing 2: soapProxy Example

There is also a step-by-step introduction on how to use the <soapProxy> element.


Name Required Default Description Example
blockRequest false false legacy attribute for usage by Membrane Monitor
blockResponse false false legacy attribute for usage by Membrane Monitor
host false not set

A space separated list of hostnames. If set, Membrane will only consider this rule, if the "Host" header of incoming HTTP requests matches one of the hostnames.

The asterisk '*' can be used for basic globbing (to match any number, including zero, characters).

predic8.de *.predic8.de
ip false not set If present, binds the port only on the specified IP. Useful for hosts with multiple IP addresses.
name false By default, a name will be automatically generated from the target host, port, etc. The name as shown in the Admin Console.
port false 80 The port Membrane listens on for incoming connections. 8080
portName false -
wsdl true - The WSDL of the SOAP service. http://predic8.de/my.wsdl or file:my.wsdl
wsdlHttpClientConfig false -



Child Elements

2 0..1 Configures the usage of inbound SSL (HTTPS). ssl
