Receiving XML Events via HTTP


This application demonstrates how to configure WSO2 Streaming Integrator to receive events to the SweetProductionStream via HTTP transport in XML default format and log the events in LowProductionAlertStream to the output console.


Save this sample.

Executing the Sample:

1) Start the Siddhi application by clicking on 'Run'. 2) If the Siddhi application starts successfully, the following messages would be shown on the console.

* Source Listener has created for url http://localhost:8006/productionStream
* ReceiveHTTPInXMLFormatWithDefaultMapping.siddhi - Started Successfully!

Testing the Sample:

Option 1: Publish events with http sample client:

Navigate to {WSO2SIHome}/samples/sample-clients/http-client and run ant command as follows:

Run ant command in the terminal as follows:

ant -Dtype=xml
If you want to publish custom number of events, you need to run ant command as follows:
ant -Dtype=xml -DnoOfEventsToSend=5

Option 2: Publish events with curl command:

Publish few events in xml format to the http endpoint as follows (The values for name and amount attributes can be changed as desired).

curl -X POST -d '<events><event><name>sugar</name><amount>300</amount></event></events>' http://localhost:8006/productionStream --header "Content-Type:application/xml"

Option 3: Publish events with Postman:
  1. Install 'Postman' application from Chrome web store.
  2. Launch the application.
  3. Make a 'Post' request to 'http://localhost:8006/productionStream' endpoint. Set the Content-Type to 'application/xml' and set the request body in xml format as follows.


If you edit this application while it's running, stop the application -> Save -> Start. If the message "Source Listener has created for url http://localhost:8006/productionStream" does not appear,it could be due to port 8006, defined in the Siddhi application is already being used by a different program. To resolve this issue, please do the following, * Stop this Siddhi application (Click 'Run' on menu bar -> 'Stop') * Change the port 8006 to an unused port, in this Siddhi application's source configuration. * Start the application and check whether the specified messages appear on the console

Viewing the Results:

See the output. Following message would be shown on the console if you use option 2 or 3 to publish events.

ReceiveHTTPInXMLFormatWithDefaultMapping : LowProducitonAlertStream : Event{timestamp=1511938781887, data=[sugar, 300.0], isExpired=false}
