This page is meant to help keep track of the status of various portions of Apache CXF.
Web Services Standards Support Modules
CXF supports a variety of web service standards including SOAP, the WS-I Basic Profile, WSDL, WS-Addressing, WS-Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Security, WS-SecurityPolicy, WS-SecureConversation, and WS-Trust.
Frontend Programming Modules
CXF supports a variety of "frontend" programming models.
CXF includes its own transport abstraction layer to hide transport specific details from the binding and front end layers. Currently supported transports include: HTTP, HTTPs, HTTP-Jetty, HTTP-OSGI, Servlet, local, JMS, In-VM and many others via the Camel transport for CXF such as SMTP/POP3, TCP and Jabber.
Protocol Binding Modules
CXF feature that allows automatic detection of when a client and a service are stuck on the same bus and then bypasses much of the interceptor chains during processing.
CXF feature that allows (when combined with the local transport), directly passing objects from client/server in the same bus without marshalling.
Data Binding Modules
Data bindings implement the mapping between XML elements and Java objects. Data bindings convert data to and from XML, produce XML schema, and provide support for wsdl2java code generation. Not all data bindings support all of this functionality. At very least, a data binding must provide the data conversion.
Schema validation used for Aegis
CXF uses Spring by default
