16.07.27 (UI) - Apigee Edge for Public Cloud release notes

On Wednesday, July 27, 2016, we released a new version of Apigee Edge for Public Cloud.

New features and updates

Following are the new features and updates in this release.

SOAP proxy behavior when using the proxy wizard

When creating a SOAP-based proxy from a WSDL using the proxy wizard, there are two options for proxy creation:

  • Pass-Through SOAP, where the proxy simply passes through a SOAP request payload as is.
  • REST to SOAP to REST, where the proxy converts an incoming payload such as JSON to a SOAP payload, then converts the SOAP response back to the format the caller expects.

This release includes the following updates to how these options behave. The differences between the old and new behavior are in the policies and configurations that are automatically generated by the proxy wizard.

Pass-Through SOAP

  • All WSDL operations are now sent to the proxy base path "/" rather than to proxy resources (such as "/cityforecastbyzip"). Operation names are passed through to the target SOAP service. This behavior matches the SOAP specification.

  • The generated proxy no longer supports JSON in the request. It supports only XML. The proxy ensures SOAP requests have an Envelope, Body, and a http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/ namespace.


  • The proxy no longer support WSDL RPC (only Document/Literal is supported). This has not been tested with WSDL 2.0.
  • The new behavior hasn't been tested with WS-Policy.
  • The proxy lets you POST JSON data instead of FormParams.
  • When you add CORS (Cross-origin resource sharing) support to the proxy using the proxy builder, you'll see the following enhancements:
    • Access-Control-Allow-Headers header: In addition to Origin, x-requested-with, and Accept headers, the Access-Control-Allow-Headers header also includes Content-Type, Accept-Encoding, Accept-Language, Host, Pragma, Referrer, User-Agent, and Cache-Control.
    • Access-Control-Allow-Methods header: In addition to GET, PUT, POST, DELETE, this header also includes the PATCH and OPTIONS verbs.
  • When generating an API proxy for a WSDL, Edge reads any ComplexTypes that are defined as abstract in the WSDL and properly recognizes any instance types that are based on the abstract types.

wsdl2apigee open source command-line utility

Apigee also provides an open source command-line utility to generate passthrough or rest-to-soap API proxies from WSDLs. See https://github.com/apigee/wsdl2apigee.
