Subject CXF-437: @Resources are not injected into Handlers
Date Thu, 01 Mar 2007 09:10:09 GMT
Hi, I am currently looking into CXF-437 What
I am trying to figure out is what kind of @Resource are valid resources that can be injected
into handlers. Through a quick search into JSR-109, as far as I can find, following resouces
are injectable into handlers:

1. When CXF is deployed into a servlet container, the component's context and environment
entries are injected into handlers. JSR-109, section 6.2.3:

With JAX-WS, the handler allows for resources to be injected, typically by using the @Resource
annotation. So
a Handler.handle<action>() method may access the component's context and environment
entries by using any
resources that were injected. It can also use JNDI lookup of the "java:comp/env" context and
the env-entry-names defined in the deployment descriptor by performing a JNDI lookup. See
chapter 15
of the Enterprise JavaBeans specification - Enterprise JavaBeans Core Contracts and Requirements
for details.
The container may throw a java.lang.IllegalStateException if the environment is accessed from
any other Handler method and the environment is not available. The element init-params in
deployment descriptors is no longer used for JAX-WS based container. If needed, the developer
should use the
environment entry elements (<env-entry>) declared in the application component's deployment
descriptor for
this purpose. These can be injected into the handler using the @Resource annotation or looked
up using JNDI.

An example of this use case: [1]. As a side note, we also need to support the JNDI look up
of environment entries from handlers in order to make CXF JAX-WS spec compliant. 

2. The injection of JSR-109, section 6.2.4:

A JAX-WS based container must carry out any injections (if any) requested by the handler,
typically via the
@Resource annotation (see section 2.2 of JSR-250 Common Annotations for Java Platform specification).
JAX-WS handler should use the, which is an injectable resource,
to access message context and security information relative to the request being served. A
unique Handler
instance must be provided for each Port component declared in the deployment descriptor or
annotated by
javax.jws.WebService or annotations.

CXF does support the injection of WebServiceContext in endpoint but not in handlers yet. I
presume a code snippet that has the injection of  WebServiceContext would look like below:

public class MyHandler implements SOAPHandler<SOAPMessageContext> {
WebServiceContext context

Am I reading the spec correctly? anything missing? I will create two jiras to support case
1 and 2 if it looks ok.
