D.3. CXF endpoint discovery

For connections between Web service clients and Web services within the cloud, you have the option of supporting location transparency and load balancing through the Fabric discovery mechanism. This mechanism is not supported for connections coming into the cloud, however, so that you cannot advertise a Web service externally using this discovery mechanism.
To enable Fabric discovery on the server side, you must install the requisite Fabric load balancer feature into the CXF bus object. When this feature is installed, all Web services created in this bus will automatically be registered in the Fabric registry.
On the client side, you must install the fabric load balancer feature directly in the client proxy instance. The Web service client will then look up the server's location in the Fabric registry, ignoring the address configured in the client endpoint (you can use a dummy value for the URL).
