Subject Schemas passed by ServiceFactoryBean.setSchemaLocation() are not accessible in DataBinding model
Date Wed, 16 Jun 2010 10:28:40 GMT

I am working on implementing the JiBX databinding implementation for Apache
CXF and I've come across the following situation which I think could be a
possible shortcoming. I've also attached two patches as a solution for that.

I've used the following code to start up a simple service and I've used
serviceFactoryBean.setSchemaLocations() method to pass a list of schema

LibraryServiceImpl libraryServiceImpl = new LibraryServiceImpl();
ServerFactoryBean svrFactory = new ServerFactoryBean();
ArrayList<String> schemaLocations = new ArrayList<String>();
svrFactory.getServiceFactory().setDataBinding(new JiBXDataBinding());

However that information is inaccessible in the service model or in the
AbstractDataBinding classes. When I looked in more deeply I found that
AbstarctDataBinding is populated with  schemas that are specified
by serviceFactoryBean.setSchemaLocations() when no DataBinding is specified
and when ReflectionServiceFactoryBean.createDefaultDataBinding() is invoked.
I think AbstarctDataBinding should be populated not only when no databinding
is specified but also when particular databinding object is provided with
schemas specified by setSchemaLocations() method.

In my propose fix ReflectionServiceFactoryBean.fillDataBindingSchemas()
method does the actual filling and it is invoked before
AbstractServiceFactoryBean.initializeDataBindings() is invoked in
ReflectionServiceFactoryBean.initializeDataBindings() method. Perhaps we
should implement  fillDataBindingSchemas() in AbstractServiceFactoryBean
class instead of ReflectionServiceFactoryBean class.

Any thoughts ?

Thanks & Best Regards,
