[Willem] I got that , since "cxf" is used for the CXF bus instance in 
the Spring context ,we need to resolve
 the conflict of cxf and camel-cxf component.

[Willem] Can you show me the SEI that you have in your project?
camel-cxf consumer component pass the message to the router in three 
 data formate. 
You can find the more information by reading the comments in the[1]

Now I am working on the refactoring work CAMEL-312 [2] , and if you have any
 requirement please free to add comment on the JIRA

[Willem] I think we need to make the SEI more clear.
It just is an interface and CXF will delegate to the SEI implementor 
when it received a SOAP request.
For camel-cxf component, the CXF endpoint consumer will delegate the 
request to the camel router

For the WebServcieProvider , the SEI just have one invoke method and we 
skip the the XML
unmarshal and marshal processing in CXF. In this case we do not need to 
use the type classes to
do the data bind work.

Setting the cxfEndpoint bus with another bus instance is a way to do it 
. Because there are lots of CXF
 component which injected into the "cxf" bus , so it is not easy way to 
do it.
