Using the HTTP Binding Component


HTTP Binding Component User Guide


HTTP Binding Component Features

Features of the HTTP/SOAP Binding Component include the following:

  • Supports the WSDL 1.1, SOAP 1.1, SOAP 1.2 specifications and Basic Profile 1.1. Message exchanges to and from this binding component make use of the JBI WSDL 1.1 wrapper for the normalized message
  • Implements HTTP and SOAP binding as defined by the WSDL 1.1 specification
  • Follows WS-I 1.0 conventions and adds additional support for non-conforming components
  • Supports Document and Remote Procedure Call (RPC) style web services
  • Supports literal and encoded use
  • Supports the common convention of WSDL retrieval, such as <service uri>?wsdl
  • Uses XML Catalogs following the OASIS Committee Specification, which enable the component to resolve schemas locally without resorting to network access
  • Supports JBI service unit deployments to define the web services to provide or consume
  • Makes use of the WSDL extensibility (standard HTTP and SOAP extensions) to define external communication details for the web services to provision or consume
  • Supports, which allows direct HTTP Binding Component to HTTP Binding Component connections within a composite application
  • Provides enhanced Application Variable Support
  • Supports HTTP and HTTPS connections
  • Provides Metro (JAX-WS, Tango/WSIT) integration to support WS-* features (such as WS-Security, WS-Addressing, WS-Reliable Messaging, WS-Transaction, and so forth) for incoming and outgoing requests
  • Provides full JAX-WS integration for incoming and outgoing requests
  • Supports GlassFish V2 cluster mode

Service Provider Features

An HTTP Binding Component acting as a service provider supports sending HTTP or SOAP messages to an external web service.

Service provider features include:

  • Outbound requests handled through the Java API for XML Web Services (JAX-WS)
  • Support for proxy and proxy server authentication

Service Consumer Features

The HTTP Binding Component, acting as a service consumer, services HTTP requests or SOAP requests from HTTP clients, transforms (normalizes) them, and sends them to the normalized message router.

Service consumer features include:

  • Uses asynchronous I/O (NIO) in the server to service thousands of concurrent incoming requests
  • Packaged with an embedded HTTP server (Grizzly)
  • Supports clustering

Security Features

Security features include support for transport level security through:
