Procedure 19.1. Task

  1. To build the example, navigate to its directory and run the following command:
    mvn clean install
  2. To run the example, deploy it in JBoss EAP by copying the camel-example-cxf-tomcat.war located in the target directory to the standalone/deployments/ folder.
    The webservice is available in http://localhost:8080/camel-example-cxf-tomcat/webservices/incident?wsdl.

19.21.6. Sample Client With Camel CXF

<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="">
        <ns1:reportIncident xmlns:ns1="">
                <details>Accounting Department</details>

<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="">
        <ns1:statusIncident xmlns:ns1="">
