With the CXF inbound-endpoint I can create a webservice which invokes a POJO and the response also comes from the POJO.

With the CXF outbound-endpoint I can consume a webservice and can then use the output (routing via a chaining router for example).

But what I want is:

Receive a SOAP msg via an inbound-endpoint, then call another webservice, transform this output and use the outbound-endpoint to send the output back to the webservice client (which invokes the inbound-endpoint).

I hope it is understandable what I want and I really hope someone can help me.

Re: Problem with Mule and CXF
Hm, a nested-router seems to be a good choice, but how can I use it? Has anybody an example for me? And how can I pass the response back to the webservice client?

Re: Problem with Mule and CXF

Good question, and yes the nested router is the component you should use if you want the functionality you describe.

Let's look at a small example configuration:

<cxf:inbound-endpoint address="http://localhost:8080/test"/>
<component class="com.test.YourWebService">
<binding interface="com.webservice.WebServiceInterface">
<outbound-endpoint address="http://test/webservice"/>

Now what this configuration does is expose the YourWebService class as a web service on the http://localhost:8080/test address. The YourWebService class must define a class attribute with type WebServiceInterface and define a public setter for it. Then you can invoke the other web service from the YourWebService operation by calling the WebServiceInterface method.If you want to transform the response from the http://test/webservice web service you can simply define a transformer on the outbound-endpoint.
Hope this provides some help for you.

Best regards,
