Subject Re: Camel CXF Jaxrs service implementation class's methods are not executing
Date Fri, 04 Apr 2014 14:34:09 GMT

It is not possible to use jaxrs:server in combination with cxfrs, it is 
only possible to do

<jaxrs:server id="userManagerREST" address="camel:/route">

and then direct to from the camel route typically starting from a 
servlet. This approach is somewhat limited unless one is prepared to 
have JAX-RS server implementation be written with Camel API in mind.

CXF ships org.apache.cxf.jaxrs.provider.CachingMessageBodyWriter and
org.apache.cxf.jaxrs.provider.CachingMessageBodyReader, the idea is that 
that they can be used to let jaxrs:server be used in arbitrary parts of 
the route, however I still have to experiment with them myself.

I have another idea about making native jaxrs;server endpoints easier 
reusable in the routes, but I haven;t had time to code them.

have a look at CAMEL-7147, it has a project attached showing the 
combination of cxfrs:server & cxfrs:bean

HTH, Sergey
