Subject Re: Cross war comms using direct-vm and cxf
Date Tue, 11 Feb 2014 08:43:24 GMT
Thanks very much Claus & Dan for replying - Dan I will take a look at what you suggest
regarding local transport and mail you on the cxf user group if I have further questions (which
is very likely :-))

Claus - I'd really appreciate it if you could send me a sample camel route which shows how
to route via direct-vm from one CXF rest service in one war to another in another war as I
just don't understand what the format of the uris in the from/to should look like. 

Many thanks

 It would likely also require you to have the CXF jars in the shared/lib area of your app
server so that the actual java classes are shared and can be cast to one another.   You’d
probably need to create a very small jar (also in shared/lib) with a Spring factory thing
that would return a LocalTransportFactory singleton (instead of a new instance per bus). 
Each of your wars would then grab their LocalTranportFactory via that factory.    May also
be able to do it via a BusLIstener or similar that would register a singleton factory for
each bus that is created.
