@ Jaffna

We were @ Jaffna last weekend, following are few shots. If you are planning to go a) it takes about 14-16hours drive b) it is good if you have a SUV/Pickup as some parts of the road is not in that good condition (around Vavuniya). c) You have to leave Elephant pass by 5pm on your way back.

Binary-Relay: An Efficient way to pass both XML and non-XML content through Apache Synapse

Finally got the article done on Binary Relay, which enables Apache Synapse/WSO2 ESB to pass through non-xml data (and xml data if they need to) at the byte level--a very useful tool when using Synapse/WSO2 ESB as a load balancer. It can be enabled by adding a message formatter and a builder to Axis2 via axis2.xml. Read the article for more details.
