The IHEWebServiceClient is a simple example of how IHE producer endpoints can be hidden behind a service facade. The service methods are not exposing any part of the Apache Camel machinery that IPF builds up to implement IHE producers:

    ...

    // ===================
    // XDS-related queries
    // ===================

    public QueryResponse iti18StoredQuery(StoredQuery query, String host, int port, String pathAndParameters) throws Exception {
        QueryRegistry storedQuery = new QueryRegistry(query);
        String endpoint = String.format("xds-iti18://%s:%d/%s", host, port, pathAndParameters);
        return send(endpoint, storedQuery, QueryResponse.class);
    }

    // Use this for RAD-68, too
    public Response iti41ProvideAndRegister(ProvideAndRegisterDocumentSet documentSet, String host, int port, String pathAndParameters) throws Exception {
        String endpoint = String.format("xds-iti41://%s:%d/%s", host, port, pathAndParameters);
        return send(endpoint, documentSet, Response.class);
    }

    public RetrievedDocumentSet iti43RetrieveDocumentSet(RetrieveDocumentSet retrieve, String host, int port, String pathAndParameters) throws Exception {
        String endpoint = String.format("xds-iti43://%s:%d/%s", host, port, pathAndParameters);
        return send(endpoint, retrieve, RetrievedDocumentSet.class);
    }

    ...

Internally, a Camel ProducerTemplate is used to send the objects to the desired producer endpoints. It is not even necessary to predefine the endpoints in the Camel context in advance - they will be created on the fly. The only required piece of infrastructure is a plain CamelContext:

    <camel:camelContext id="clientContext">
        <camel:jmxAgent id="jmxAgent" usePlatformMBeanServer="true" disabled="false"/>
    </camel:camelContext>

The other context files of the example deal with setting up the ATNA details, optional interceptors and CXF conduit information to attach security aspects to the web service requests.

The source code for this example is located in the ipf-tutorials-iheclient module.
