Subject [jira] Created: (CXF-1619) Move bus wiring out of Spring XML handlers
Date Fri, 30 May 2008 13:42:45 GMT
Move bus wiring out of Spring XML handlers

                 Key: CXF-1619
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Configuration
    Affects Versions: 2.1
            Reporter: Ian Roberts

Several classes in CXF, such as JaxWs{Proxy,Server}FactoryBean, EndpointImpl, etc. that take
a reference to a Bus automatically wire in a reference to the Spring bean "cxf" if no bus
has been explicitly specified.  However, this wiring is currently handled in the custom XML
handlers, so happens at XML parsing time.  This means it is sensitive to the order in which
the Spring beans have been defined - the "cxf" Bus bean is only wired in if its definition
exists in the Spring context at the time the custom XML is parsed.

This patch implements an alternative behaviour where we first parse all the bean definitions,
then go back and check for the existence of the "cxf" bean and wire it in if necessary.  This
would mean that the CXF <import>s could go anywhere in your Spring config file (even
after your <jaxws:endpoint>s), or even in a separate file.  At present, if you put the
imports in a separate file you must arrange for this file to be loaded before your others,
but this isn't always possible to guarantee.

Summary of the patch:
- Anywhere where a Spring XML handler currently does a check for the existence of a bean called
"cxf" and wires it into the new definition, replace this code with code to add a custom attribute
to the new bean definition instead.
- BusWiringBeanFactoryPostProcessor, registered by default in cxf.xml, checks bean definitions
for this custom attribute and does the wiring.
