Chapter 4.  WS Addressing

CXF provides support for the 2004-08 and 1.0 versions of WS-Addressing. Users can enable WS-Addressing either using the standard JAX-WS approach or using the Apache CXF WS Addressing Feature on their service.

4.1. Using JAX-WS for enabling WS-Addressing

As per JAX-WS 2.1 specification, users can enable WS-Addressing on a web service endpoint by simply adding the @javax.xml.soap.Addressing annotation.
 
package org.jboss.test.ws.jaxws.samples.wsa; 

import javax.jws.WebService;
import javax.xml.ws.soap.Addressing;
@WebService
@Addressing(enabled=true, required=true)
public class ServiceImpl implements ServiceIface
{
   public String sayHello()
   {
      return "Hello World!";
   }
}
On the client side, WS-Addressing can be explicitly enabled by providing org.apache.cxf.ws.addressing.WSAddressingFeature when getting the proxy instance from the service:
  ServiceIface proxy = (ServiceIface)service.getPort(ServiceIface.class, new AddressingFeature());
proxy.sayHello());

4.1.1. Using CXF proprietary WSAddressingFeature

To enable WS-Addressing, enable the WSAddressingFeature on your service. If you wish to use XML to configure this, use the following syntax:
    
<jaxws:endpoint id="{your.service.namespace}YourPortName">
   <jaxws:features>
     <wsa:addressing xmlns:wsa="http://cxf.apache.org/ws/addressing"/>
   </jaxws:features>
</jaxws:endpoint>
You can also use the same exact syntax with a <jaxws:client>:
 
<jaxws:client id="{your.service.namespace}YourPortName">
   <jaxws:features>
     <wsa:addressing xmlns:wsa="http://cxf.apache.org/ws/addressing"/>
   </jaxws:features>
</jaxws:client>
