Pinned topic ServiceGateway pattern for external services?

‏2013-07-24T09:05:03Z |

Is it possible to create a Service Gateway pattern that calls external services as imports? I only seem to be able to use the pattern for other Websphere ESB services, but not for calling external web services for e.g.


I would like to create a Service Gateway implementation that takes any type of data as input (which the caller has to assure is correctly formatted), and calls a service specified by the caller. The service should respond with the reply (without ever having to parse the body).


Is this possible somehow? Or do I need to know the service wsdl before calling it? (making it impossible to write a service gateway service that calls external services without having to be updated every time we add another one)
