Subject CXFEndpoint and SOAPAction HTTP header
Date Thu, 02 May 2013 10:20:23 GMT
I'm using the cxfEndpoint in my camel flow to act as a webservice producer.

I have a number of clients that are able to send SOAP messages to that
endpoint, where Camel does the 
required processing and returns either a valid SOAP response or a SOAP

        <cxf:cxfEndpoint id="soapMessageEndpoint" 
                        <entry key="dataFormat" value="PAYLOAD"/>

        <from uri="cxf:bean:soapMessageEndpoint"/>

This endpoint is very dynamic in nature as 

* we are using payload mode
* are not bound to a particular WSDL / service class
* can accept different type of soap request payloads (for different soap

We discovered an issue with a Soap 1.1 client that is sending a SOAPAction
HTTP header to the endpoint. When the SOAPAction HTTP header is present the
following soap fault is returned:

The given SOAPAction
does not match an operation.

As there is no WSDL associated with the endpoint (the endpoint is running in
payload mode) how can the SOAPAction HTTP header ever be matched ? 

What is the proper way to handle this ?
