Synapse application is an ESB engine built completely on the Web Services standards on top of Apache Axis2.
It is a mediation framework for Web services that allows messages flowing through, into, or out of an organization to be mediated, including aspects such as logging, service lookup, performance mediation, versioning, failover, monitoring, fault management, and tracing.
Synapse is an effort undergoing incubation at the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Web Services PMC.
Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects.
While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
We have released a first Milestone M1. The release will supports:
· Simple mediation based on regex and xpath rules
· Onbound routing of messages
· Deploy simple Java mediators to perform logging, routing, message transform etc
· XSLT transformation of messages
· HTTP Proxy support
· Stages and in/out handling of messages
