How to do content-based routing with conversion

Content-based routing with conversion for SOAP to REST in the Vordel API Server

The Vordel API Server has some really neat features which make it very easy to do content-based routing based on parameters in a SOAP message, and to use these parameters to construct a REST request. Here is an example of how this is setup. First, I register the WSDL service (a Parlay-X AmountCharging Service) in the Web Service Repository in the Vordel Policy Studio, as shown below:

The world is moving from SOAP to REST. Many applications continue to send old-style SOAP messages. Therefore, a very common usage of the Vordel API Server is to convert from legacy SOAP messages into REST API calls. This provides the best of both worlds: (1) Existing SOAP apps continue to work and don't have to be re-coded, and (2) going forward, REST APIs are used instead.






How to orchestrate a REST API with SOAP

How to send a message on to a queue with JMS. Sending a SOAP message onto JMS using the "SOAP over Java Message Service" proposal, or as a Text Message

Did you know that you can use Vordel SOAPbox to send a SOAP message onto a JMS message queue? You can choose to send it as a normal TextMessage, or an ObjectMessage. But you can also choose to use the "SOAP over JMS Message Service" proposal to place the message.

How to convert from REST to SOAP

The popular advantages of REST over SOAP are well known: It's easier to write a REST client, the messages are smaller, you can cache REST traffic using standard Web infrastructure. But what if you have SOAP Web Services and your clients are crying out for REST Web Services instead?

Here is how you create REST Web Services in front of SOAP services using Policy Studio and the Vordel XML Gateway...(http://www.vordel.com/products/API-Server.html)

To do this, create a policy which reads parameters from the REST URL and then inserts those parameters into a SOAP message which it creates on-the-fly.

How to Secure REST Service-Application Firewalling of a REST Web Service

This video demonstrates how to secure REST-based services.

Secure REST APIs With Enterprise-Strength Protection And Integrations
REST (Representational State Transfer) style or RESTful APIs have gained great popularity among the developers and architects. REST, JSON and OAuth are becoming the de facto Web Oriented Architecture (WOA) building blocks. REST is easy to implement and lightweight, especially suitable for mobile applications. REST is not a standard but a pattern, thus it is not straight forward securing REST APIs, as compared to securing SOAP APIs using the WS-Security standard. Vordel API Server makes it simple to implement enterprise-strength security for REST APIs.

Make Legacy APIs Secure And Compliant With Vordel API Server
APIs from legacy applications may not have the proper access control to meet security policy and compliance requirements. Lack of role-based or attribute-based access control for APIs can result in excessive exposure of sensitive data such as personal identifiable information (PII) or personal health record (PHR). Fine-grained authorization / entitlement management technologies can add much needed security and control to legacy applications and APIs. Vordel API Server enforces fine-grained authorization policies for legacy APIs and applications.
