14.2. Configuring an Action by Setting Properties for It

Actions generally act as templates, requiring external configuration in order to perform their tasks. For example, a PrintMessage action might use a property named message to indicate what to print and another property called repeatCount to indicate the number of times to print it. If so, the action configuration in the jboss-esb.xml file should look like this:
<action name="PrintAMessage" class="test.PrintMessage">
 <property name="information" value="Hello World!" />
 <property name="repeatCount" value="5" />
</action>
How this configuration is then mapped on to the action instance will depend on the type of action.
