Subject Re: Abstraction on getting headers of different transports
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2007 15:14:18 GMT


There is the Header object (org.apache.cxf.headers package in API) that 
was added to start going down that route.   It's currently just used for 
out of band headers, but ideally, the header in/out interceptors would 
work with those (copy/move the objects to/from the parameter list to the 
header list) and the SOAP binding would just need to deal with the 
header list.   That second part hasn't really been started yet though.
