Hi Glen,

I have got it.
Sure, my intention was to add published information directly to CXF User's Guide or link it
to User's Guide Table of Content.

Could you give me some advises what is the right way to do it:
a) not sure how to update CXF User's Guide and User's Guide Table of Content: should I provide
a JIRA patch or is it editable via apache cwiki?
b) is it necessary to have kind of review before update it?

Actually, I see it so:
1)  can be added to
(as additional topic in the list to HTTP Transport, JMS Transport, Local Transport)
2) information from
 can be added / merged to
is candidate to external blog, because it is not directly about CXF features, but more regarding
Spring JMS configuration in CXF projects. I will move it from Apache wiki to external blog
and link it into Resources and Articles afterwards.

What is your opinion and the next steps?

Andrei, the CXF Wiki is not a good place for "articles" -- that information you wish to impart
to the community should either go to an external blog with a reference on our Resources page
or incorporated within the CXF User's Guide, where everyone can update it and we don't have
to maintain duplicate information in multiple places.  If you have anecdotal information not
really fitting for a User's Guide, external blog entries are best.

If everyone placed his own articles separate from the User's Guide on the CXF wiki, I fear
we'd eventually have dozens of obsolete and duplicative articles as one-time authors write
something and forget about it afterwards as they move on to other things, and others become
reluctant to update what is identified as somebody else's work.

I pulled out your links from the External Resources page (

Non-external CXF wiki pages should instead be linked to within the CXF User's Guide directly
or listed in the User's Guide Table of Contents (as an intermediate step before directly incorporating
the article into the guide.) Also, note nothing on the Wiki is owned by anybody but the whole
team, and anyone can update any page.  The moment you claim or imply ownership/authorship
of a page as you had on the Resource page--i.e., this page is my work, only I should be updating
it, or if the article is written in the first person, etc.--off to an external blog it needs
to go, with a link on the CXF resources page instead.
