Error happens when undeploying SwitchYard application with transformers

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • I’m having trouble with undeploying SwitchYard applications with pending requests and their response transformations.
  • It seems that after the JBoss FSW waits for all requests to be completed and undeploys the applications, all response transformations are skipped.
  • As an example, I have two simple SwitchYard applications: Hello and World.

    • The Hello application communicates with the World application using a SCA Binding.
    • The World application contains a bean that returns a WorldOutput object, but since the SCA Binding returns a String, I created the SCATransformer class to transform the response into a String.
    • All requests to the World application will take longer than 15 seconds, because it contains a Thread.sleep command.
    • After Hello application received a request and called the World application, I tried to undeploy the World application and the JBoss FSW waited for 30 seconds for all pending requests to be completed.
    • Afterwards, the application was undeployed and I got this exception:

      org.switchyard.HandlerException: SWITCHYARD014011: Transformations not applied.  Required payload type of 'java:java.lang.String'.  Actual payload type is 'java:com.example.switchyard.interfaces.WorldOutput'.  You must define and register a Transformer to transform between these types.
    • The Hello application received a response that was not transformed.

  • Does this exception make sense or is it a bug? If it’s not a bug, is there any workaround?
