Subject [jira] Updated: (CXF-2779) CXF ignores @XmlAttribute when serializing exception
Date Thu, 22 Apr 2010 10:31:53 GMT


Chris Wilson updated CXF-2779:


Relatedly, JAXBEncoderDecoder.unmarshallException() uses getField() instead of
getDeclaredField() to get the private field, which fails, because private fields are only
accessible using getDeclaredField().

It was clearly intended to work with private fields, because it then calls f.setAccessible(true)
on the field, but I guess this was never tested.

Updated test case with a test for this second issue attached.

> 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.

> {code}
> @XmlRootElement
> class Bean {
>   @XmlAttribute("sample-field")
>   private String _myField;
> }
> {code}
> Nevertheless:
> * 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.
