Attribute

Description

ConnectionTimeout

Specifies the amount of time, in milliseconds, that the client will attempt to establish a connection before it times out. The default is 30000 (30 seconds).
0 specifies that the client will continue to attempt to open a connection indefinitely.

ReceiveTimeout

Specifies the amount of time, in milliseconds, that the client will wait for a response before it times out. The default is 60000.
0 specifies that the client will wait indefinitely.

AutoRedirect

Specifies if the client will automatically follow a server issued redirection. The default is false.

MaxRetransmits

Specifies the maximum number of times a client will retransmit a request to satisfy a redirect. The default is -1 which specifies that unlimited retransmissions are allowed.

AllowChunking

Specifies whether the client will send requests using chunking. The default is true which specifies that the client will use chunking when sending requests.
Chunking cannot be used used if either of the following are true:

  • http-conf:basicAuthSupplier is configured to provide credentials preemptively.
  • AutoRedirect is set to true.
    In both cases the value of AllowChunking is ignored and chunking is disallowed.
    See note about chunking below.

ChunkingThreshold

Specifies the threshold at which CXF will switch from non-chunking to chunking. By default, messages less than 4K are buffered and sent non-chunked. Once this threshold is reached, the message is chunked.

Accept

Specifies what media types the client is prepared to handle. The value is used as the value of the HTTP Accept property. The value of the attribute is specified using as multipurpose internet mail extensions (MIME) types. See note about chunking below.

AcceptLanguage

Specifies what language (for example, American English) the client prefers for the purposes of receiving a response. The value is used as the value of the HTTP AcceptLanguage property.
Language tags are regulated by the International Organization for Standards (ISO) and are typically formed by combining a language code, determined by the ISO-639 standard, and country code, determined by the ISO-3166 standard, separated by a hyphen. For example, en-US represents American English.

AcceptEncoding

Specifies what content encodings the client is prepared to handle. Content encoding labels are regulated by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). The value is used as the value of the HTTP AcceptEncoding property.

ContentType

Specifies the media type of the data being sent in the body of a message. Media types are specified using multipurpose internet mail extensions (MIME) types. The value is used as the value of the HTTP ContentType property. The default is text/xml.
Tip: For web services, this should be set to text/xml. If the client is sending HTML form data to a CGI script, this should be set to application/x-www-form-urlencoded. If the HTTP POST request is bound to a fixed payload format (as opposed to SOAP), the content type is typically set to application/octet-stream.

Host

Specifies the Internet host and port number of the resource on which the request is being invoked. The value is used as the value of the HTTP Host property.
Tip: This attribute is typically not required. It is only required by certain DNS scenarios or application designs. For example, it indicates what host the client prefers for clusters (that is, for virtual servers mapping to the same Internet protocol (IP) address).

Connection

Specifies whether a particular connection is to be kept open or closed after each request/response dialog. There are two valid values:

  • Keep-Alive(default) specifies that the client wants to keep its connection open after the initial request/response sequence. If the server honors it, the connection is kept open until the consumer closes it.
  • close specifies that the connection to the server is closed after each request/response sequence.

CacheControl

Specifies directives about the behavior that must be adhered to by caches involved in the chain comprising a request from a client to a server.

Cookie

Specifies a static cookie to be sent with all requests.

BrowserType

Specifies information about the browser from which the request originates. In the HTTP specification from the World Wide Web consortium (W3C) this is also known as the user-agent. Some servers optimize based upon the client that is sending the request.

Referer

Specifies the URL of the resource that directed the consumer to make requests on a particular service. The value is used as the value of the HTTP Referer property.
Note: This HTTP property is used when a request is the result of a browser user clicking on a hyperlink rather than typing a URL. This can allow the server to optimize processing based upon previous task flow, and to generate lists of back-links to resources for the purposes of logging, optimized caching, tracing of obsolete or mistyped links, and so on. However, it is typically not used in web services applications.
Important: If the AutoRedirect attribute is set to true and the request is redirected, any value specified in the Refererattribute is overridden. The value of the HTTP Referer property will be set to the URL of the service who redirected the consumer's original request.

DecoupledEndpoint

Specifies the URL of a decoupled endpoint for the receipt of responses over a separate server->client connection.
Warning: You must configure both the client and server to use WS-Addressing for the decoupled endpoint to work.

ProxyServer

Specifies the URL of the proxy server through which requests are routed.

ProxyServerPort

Specifies the port number of the proxy server through which requests are routed.

NonProxyHostsSpecifies a list of hosts that should be directly routed. This value is a list of patterns separated by '|', where each pattern may start or end with a '*' for wildcard matching.

ProxyServerType

Specifies the type of proxy server used to route requests. Valid values are:

  • HTTP(default)
  • SOCKS
