Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-4033) Interceptor and Features annotations require context classloader
Date Mon, 16 Jan 2012 17:19:39 GMT
Interceptor and Features annotations require context classloader

                 Key: CXF-4033
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Daniel Kulp
            Assignee: Daniel Kulp
             Fix For: 2.4.6, 2.5.2

The @InInterceptors and @Features annotations  currently define their types via a String[].
 This causes a few issues:

1) Spelling of the classnames is not checkable until runtime.  

2) No type checking until runtime.

3) The context classloader needs to be set correctly to load the classes which is not always
the case (think OSGI).

It would be good to add:

Class<? extends Interceptor>[] classes() default { };

to the annotations to allow the developer to use the actual class objects which will provide
type checking (class is the correct type) as well as allow the regular class loading mechanisms
to work properly.
