Cuubez sample application

Step 1: Download cuubez from the Repository

The first step is to download the latest cuubez stable release from:
Maven repo


Step 2: Add the following libraries to your Web application


Step 3: Define listeners and bootstrap classes\

  <display-name>Employee Example</display-name>

Step 4: Create your first RESTful service

In a REST based architecture everything is a resource. A resource is accessed via a common interface based on the HTTP standard methods (e.g., POST, GET, PUT or DELETE). Every resource should support the HTTP common operations. Resources are identified by global ID's (which are typically URIs). In the first example, we will recall a RESTful Web service which returns a User object when a certain path is request with an HTTP GET:

User object :
public class User {
    private String id;
    private String name;
    private int age;

    public User(String id, String name, int age) { = id;
        this.age = age; = name;

    public String getId() {return id;}

    public int getAge() {return age;}

    public String getName() {return name;}

    public void setId(String id) { = id;}

    public void setAge(int age) {this.age = age;}

    public void setName(String name) { = name;}

REST service class :
public class UserDetail {

    public User getUser(@PathParam(value = "userId")String userId) {
      User user = new User(userId, "jhone", 35);
      return user;

The @Path annotation at class level is used to specify the base URL of the Web service. Then you can assign a @Path annotation at method level to specify the single action you want to invoke.
In this example, if you need to invoke the userDetail service, you have to use the following URL: (we suppose that the web application is named cuubez.war)


would return:
 "name": "jhone",
 "age": 35

How does it deal with circular references during marshalling and unmarshalling?
Cuubez used Xstream and gson libraries for the marshaling and marshaling process. These libraries handle circular references in different manner. If you need more information about how each library handle circular references. I think better to use google :)

How to enable proxy service security in ESB 4.9.0?

Security is  one of the major concern when we developing API base integrations or application developments. WSO2 supports WS Security, WS-Policy and WS-Security Policy specifications. These specifications define a behavior model for web services. Proxy service security requirements are different from each others. WSO2 ESB providing pre-define commonly used twenty security scenarios to choose based on the security requirements. This functionality is provided by the security management feature which is bundled by default in service management feature in ESB. This configuration can be done via the web console until ESB 4.8.1 release, but this has been removed from the ESB 4.9.0. Even though this feature isn't provided by the ESB web console itself same functionality can be achieved by the new WSO2 Dev Studio. WSO2 always motivate to use dev studio to prepare required artifacts to the ESB rather than the web console. Better way to explain this scenario is by example. Following example …

How SSL Tunneling working in the WSO2 ESB

This blog post assumes that the user who reads has some basic understanding of SSL tunneling and the basic message flow of the ESB. If you are not familiar with the concepts of the SSL tunneling you can refer my previous blog post about the SSL tunneling and you can get detail idea about the message flow from this article.
I will give brief introduction about the targetHandler for understand concepts easily. As you may already know TargetHandler(TH) is responsible for handling requests and responses for the backend side. It is maintaining status (REQUEST_READY, RESPONSE_READY .. ,etc) based on the events which fired by the IOReactor and executing relevant methods. As the example if a response which is coming from the backend side hits to the ESB, IOReactor fire the responseRecived method in the targetHandler side. Followings are the basic methods contain in the target handler and their responsibilities.
