Features

CXF includes a broad feature set, but it is primarily focused on the following areas:

...

CXF implements the JAX-WS APIs (TCK compliant). CXF JAX-WS support includes some extensions to the standard that make it significantly easier to use, compared to the reference implementation: It will automatically generate code for request and response bean classes, and does not require a WSDL for simple cases.

...

For REST, CXF also supports a JAX-RS (TCK compliant) frontend.

  • Ease of use: CXF is designed to be intuitive and easy to use. There are simple APIs to quickly build code-first services, Maven plug-ins to make tooling integration easy, JAX-WS API support, Spring 2.x XML support to make configuration a snap, and much more.
  • Binary and Legacy Protocol Support: CXF has been designed to provide a pluggable architecture that supports not only XML but also non-XML type bindings, such as JSON and CORBA, in combination with any type of transport.

...

  • Basic support: WS-I Basic Profile 1.1
  • Quality of Service: WS-Reliable Messaging
  • Metadata: WS-Policy, WSDL 1.1 - Web Service Definition Language
  • Communication Security: WS-Security, WS-SecurityPolicy, WS-SecureConversation, WS-Trust (partial support)
  • Messaging Support: WS-Addressing, SOAP 1.1, SOAP 1.2, Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism (MTOM)
OpenAPI Specification (OAS) Support
  • OAS 2.0 (classic Swagger specification)
  • OAS 3.0.x (new revised specification)
