Subject [jira] Created: (CXF-2779) CXF ignores @XmlAttribute when serializing exception

CXF ignores @XmlAttribute when serializing exception

                 Key: CXF-2779
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: JAXB Databinding
    Affects Versions: 2.2.7
            Reporter: Chris Wilson

JAXBEncoderDecoder#unmarshallException} doesn't normally write to private fields, so exception
data isn't propagated, unless:

* either the {@link @XmlAccessorType} annotation is present on the class and used to set the
default access method to something other than the default XmlAccessType#PUBLIC_MEMBER,
* or the {@link XmlAttribute} annotation is present on the individual private members that
you want to be serialized.

The [|Caucho documentation]

bq. Adding @XmlAttribute to a private field will mark that field as serializable.

class Bean {
  private String _myField;


* JAXBEncoderDecoder#marshallException calls org.apache.cxf.jaxb.JAXBContextInitializer#isFieldAccepted
to see whether the field should be copied
* that method fails to check for the XmlAttribute annotation on the field
* so its value is never serialized or deserialized

and the attached test case fails unless:

* either a public getter and setter are provided to turn the field into a property, 
* or the access type is changed to something other than PUBLIC_MEMBER.
