Subject Re: Proposal to deprecate CXF HTTP Binding
Date Tue, 20 Jan 2009 20:30:30 GMT

The XML binding is separate from the HTTP binding.   The HTTP binding is the 
first "REST" stuff that was in CXF based on the JRA annotations.      

The XML binding is the thing that does the XML/HTTP stuff required by the 
JAX-WS spec.

That said, I would say deprecate for 2.2 unless we can get a client side API 
for the JAX-RS stuff.
