  3. Can anyone explain how JBI is supported?
  4. Can anyone explain how JBI is supported?
    WSO2 ESB uses Apache Synapse underneath, and the approach of the Synapse is different from the JBI... It doesn't really supports JBI integration at least for the moment. WSO2 ESB is configured with a very simple Configuration Language and provides and administration console. If the community is asking for it, we were willing to add the JBI integration on top of our approach, by allowing users to plugin any JBI BCs and SUs to WSO2 ESB, but it didn't seem to be interesting to the users. If there is a requirement from the community we can still do that integration. You may have a look at the ESB (Apache Synapse) operational model which is far more simple than JBI.
  5. Further extending the WSO2 ESB is also very simple with the approach that we have been following; You may have a look at the ESB Extending Guide and the Configuration Guide. JBI BCs are analogous to the transports in WSO2 ESB and the SUs are analogous to the Mediators and tasks.
