The Java Call Out policy provides a way to inject custom Java modules as part of the message flow. The callout handler implements a Java interface onto which complete processing context is passed.
The properties that have to be configured to use the policy are described below.

Is Streaming Supported
This option can be checked if the class does not access or modify the payload and that it works only with parameters and context variables.
Accessing Processor Context
This method has the variable processor context whose methods are listed below. The methods can be used to access or modify the message.
The following class demonstrates the use of Java call out. The class inspects the parameter ID and verifies whether or not the details corresponding to the ID are present in a local database. If present, the details are set as payload and a flag RETRIEVED_FROM_DB will be set so that the execution of other policies can be controlled by rules based on this flag.
