    Feedback on JBossWS/CXF integration of WS-RM

    Thomas Diesler Master

      I just sent this to the CXF dev forum


      Hi Folks,

      over the last couple of days I tried to integrate CXF's WS-RM implementation with JBossWS. Last summer, we announced that JBossWS would provide a pluggable WS framework (see the links below) that would allow JBoss customers to run CXF as the preferred WS implementation in JBoss.

      We have setup a common testsuite for JAX-WS endpoints and clients that we test against (JBossWS) Native, Metro and CXF. In a nutshell, the integration of cxf-2.0.3 looks promising with only a few outstanding issues

      The next thing I tried was to integrate CXF's WS-RM implementation. In essence I tried to setup JAX-WS RPC/Document endpoints that I configured to use RM. On the client side I tried to stick to standard JAX-WS API as much as I could. The issues that I encountered on the way are aggregated here

      some of them have workarounds, others not. What I currently have are endpoints that reject non RM messages, but choke on RM messages because of [CXF-1321]. The client seems to work ok for Document but not for RPC [CXF-1322]

      Ideally, I would like to get this work completed early next year. Perhaps there is somebody available, who I could contact to discuss what I should expect in terms of working functionality and how to get things working in an integrated environment.

      As a result I would write a step by step guide on howto enable a JAX-WS endpoint for RM [CXF-1311].

      Have a good holiday & cheers
