Subject RE: Getting payload in the client side.
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2011 21:09:29 GMT
Thank you very much Dan for your reply. I am able to hit the interceptor and set headers there
and get it in the server. I still cannot get hold of content of the post in the interceptor
level. This is what I have: 

//in my main method 
	String payload = "This is what I want in ICOutBoundInterceptor";
      WebClient xmlClient2 = WebClient.create(BASE_URI);    
      WebClient.getConfig(xmlClient2).getOutInterceptors().add(new ICOutBoundInterceptor(Phase.WRITE));
      String cResponse =, String.class);              

//I want to get only the payload (content) part (The value of string payload (value: "This
is what I want in ICOutBoundInterceptor") from main method) in //the handleMessage method
of my interceptor (ICOutBoundInterceptor)

I want to create hash of only the payload not the output stream. It is because I found the
output stream changes along the way until it reaches the server side. I tried that but the
hash is never equal in the client side and server side. 

I will appreciate your help.

You could grab the source for the Logging interceptors and use that as a 
starting point.

That said, I'd suggest an alternative approach.   Stick an interceptor that 
runs prior to the StaxOutInterceptor that would do:

OutputStream out = message.getContent(OutputStream.class);
DigestOutputStream dos = new DigestOutputStream(out, 
message.setContent(dos, OutputStream.class);
message.put("", dos);

That will calculate the digest while writing.    A second interceptor that 
runs later can do:

DigestOutputStream dos = message.get("");

to compute the digest and then do whatever it is you need to do with it.

Actually, instead of the second interceptor, you could override the close 
method on the stream to do it:

DigestOutputStream dos = new DigestOutputStream(out, 
MessageDigest.getInstance("MD5"))   {

public void close() {
   byte digest[] = getMessageDigest().digest();
   //do something with it
