    How do I

    Kevin Richards Newbie


      Please help, I'm sure I'm missing something simple (or misunderstanding something) but I just can't seem to enable CXF.

      I started by developing a "normal" (JSR181 annotated web service)

      My java class

       style = SOAPBinding.Style.DOCUMENT,
       use = SOAPBinding.Use.LITERAL,
       parameterStyle = SOAPBinding.ParameterStyle.WRAPPED
      public class EntryPointWs
       public String sendMessage( @WebParam(name = "message")
       String message )
       return "Hello " + message;

      and my web.xml

      <web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
       xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/web-app_2_4.xsd"

      This works fine.

      My question is how do I enable CXF?

      If I look at http://jbossws.jboss.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=Stack_CXF_User_Guide

      It seems I only need to add jbossws-cxf.xml to my WEB-INF directory

      (my jbossws-cxf.xml)
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
       http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-2.0.xsd
       http://cxf.apache.org/jaxws http://cxf.apache.org/schemas/jaxws.xsd
       <!-- Load CXF modules from cxf.jar -->
       <import resource="classpath:META-INF/cxf/cxf.xml" />
       <import resource="classpath:META-INF/cxf/cxf-extension-soap.xml" />
       <import resource="classpath:META-INF/cxf/cxf-servlet.xml" />
       <bean class='org.jboss.wsf.stack.cxf.InvokerJSE'/>

      However, I have reason to believe it is actually not doing anything for 2 reasons.
      1. If I use my browser to browse to "http://localhost:9080/jaxws-samples-wsa" (as defined in the endpoint) I get an error
      saying nothing is listening on port 9080.

      2. If I make a "mistake" in the above file (e.g. make the last "tag" "bean" instead of "/beans") I do not get notified
      of any issue.

      I realise I'm doing something obviously wrong, but if someone can just point me in the right direction,
      it would be greatly appreciated.

      PS. I assume the CXF stack is running since I'm getting the following in the JBoss log when it starts up
      19:46:46,859 INFO [CXFServerConfig] JBoss Web Services - Stack CXF Runtime Server

          Once JBossWS-CXF is installed, every endpoint you deploy is handled by the cxf version of jbossws, no need for further "enabling" process.
          The jbossws-cxf.xml descriptor is optional and has to be used in case you need to customize the integration, for instance for using ws-reliable messaging or other advanced technologies.
          Regarding not being able to reach your endpoint, double check the port address.
