Subject Re: Handling CXF endpoint values
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2008 14:37:55 GMT
Hi ,
After I went through your mail,  I think I should point out what exactly 
CXF consumer do for the exchange.
In the CXF consumer , we just replace the regular invoker of the CXF 
endpoint , so we can direct the request to the Camel processors for 
further processing.

So what you get from the exchange.getIn() is the invoking parameter, all 
the magic things are happened in the CamelInvoker[1]'s  Object 
invoke(Exchange exchange, Object o) method.
The parameter could be an instance of List class or an Object due to the 
WSDL operation's parameter definition.
