Subject Re: Improving JBossWS-CXF Client Side Integration
Date Wed, 03 Jun 2009 06:11:22 GMT
Hi Daniel,

   Yes, I know about solution 1) you suggested. However I don't like it.
It's hacky and could cause a lot of troubles to our customers.
Thus I'd like to go the way to modify CXF code base.

   Before I'll write my suggestion let me clarify that we don't need to
wrap your ServiceDelegate. We just need to register properties
on the proxy and that can be achieved using listener approach.
So here are my thoughts how it could be achieved in another way (no 
delegation):

---
ad1)
---
// CXF provides listener interface
package org.apache.cxf.jaxws;

public interface ServiceListener
{
   void onPortCreated(T proxy, Class<T> sei);
}
---
ad2)
---
// JBossWS provides listener implementation
package org.jboss.wsf.stack.cxf.client;

public class ServiceListenerImpl implements ServiceListener
{
   public void onPortCreated(T proxy, Class<T> sei)
   {
      // ... our integration code
   }
}
---
ad3)
---
// JBossWS somehow registers the listener
---
ad4)
---
// finally replace the following code in 
org.apache.cxf.jaxws.ServiceImpl.createPort(...)
protected <T> T createPort(QName portName, EndpointReferenceType epr, 
Class<T> serviceEndpointInterface, WebServiceFeature... features)
{
   // ...
   return serviceEndpointInterface.cast(obj);
}
// with the following code:
protected <T> T createPort(QName portName, EndpointReferenceType epr, 
Class<T> serviceEndpointInterface, WebServiceFeature... features)
{
   // ...
   T proxy = serviceEndpointInterface.cast(obj);
   for (ServiceListener listener : listeners)
   {
      listener.onPortCreated(proxy, serviceEndpointInterface);
   }
   return proxy;
}

If you like this approach then let's disscuss how ad3) could be 
achieved, i.e. how to register the listener on the service.

Cheers,

Richard
