I was wondering what I would need to do to use some of the ServiceMix components in SwordFish? Is their anything I need to do special? Do I have to create some custom type of assembly or do I just include the appropriate jars in my project and the <bean> specs in the cxf-endpoint.xml file? When creating a process workflows that use many services is their some other file that I need to define that defines all those beans and their connectivity?
You basically have two options here:
1. Use the ServiceMix components as-is along with the JBI 1.0 backwards compatibility bundles from the ServiceMix project. Since Swordfish is purely SMX4-based and we try to keep JBI 1.0 legacy out as much as possible, we currently don't provide these as part of Swordfish, though.
2. Repackage the 'old' JBI components as OSGi bundles. For an example on how to do this, you could take a look at the org.apache.servicemix.http bundle in the Swordfish SVN repo.
An example workflow might be a HTTP-Consumer pulling data from a web site, then feeding that to the XSLT component for some work, then to a Camel component to run a EIP setup, then finally to a HTTP Provider. All those are pretty much ServiceMix components. How do I go about deploying that to SwordFish and debugging it as well?
Well, now it gets a bit more complicated. .-)
The point here is that what you're describing is not exactly what Swordfish is currently designed for. That doesn't mean that it cannot be done, but, frankly, pure ServiceMix 4 (on Felix and the ServiceMix Kernel) might be a more obvious and more convenient choice in your case. The reason is that most things that you require are pretty much automated via Maven in ServiceMix.
The real value of the Swordfish Framework comes in when you need things like registry-based runtime service registry lookup, policy-based message processing and so on in combination with SOAP-based web services, so I fell that you won't gain much from it for your integration-oriented usage scenario.
Does that make sense to you?
