Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-3617) Automatic Type Converters for Restful Clients
Date Thu, 21 Jul 2011 17:28:58 GMT


Shaun Elliott commented on CXF-3617:

No, I think a better solution would be automatic registration. This is how the Restlet library
does it. You don't have to worry about mappings. 

Furthermore, I would think a generic MessageBody[Reader|Writer] like the accepted answer would
be part of the library already. I don't understand why it is not (though, admittedly, I am
ignorant to some of the workings of restful web service clients).

> Other competing libraries (such as Restlet) support automatic type mapping out of the
box via XStream and Jackson. Given CXF's compliance to JAX-RS it would be helpful if this
boilerplate type code were given out of the box too.
