Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-4339) Dispatch client fails to set soap action header automatically unless WS-Addressing is enabled
Date Wed, 23 May 2012 22:01:43 GMT


Aki Yoshida commented on CXF-4339:

are you setting the operation in the request context? (i.e. MessageContext.WSDL_OPERATION)?
If not and if no addressing is enabled, the payload-based operation finding is only triggered
if the request context's property find.dispatch.operation is set to Boolean.TRUE. It is not
set by default. Could you check if either of these approaches is taken?

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: JAX-WS Runtime
>    Affects Versions: 2.5.3

> If I have a Dispatch client and I have WS-Addressing enabled on it and I send a request
then I see the following:
> {quote}
> Content-Type: application/soap+xml; *action="urn:ihe:iti:2007:RegistryStoredQuery"*
> Headers: \{Accept=[*/*]}
> Payload: <soap:Envelope xmlns:soap=""><soap:Header><Action
> {quote}
> But when I just disable WS-Addressing then the content-type header changes to the following:
> {quote}
> Content-Type: application/soap+xml; charset=UTF-8
> {quote}
> There's no action attribute any more.  Manually setting the soap action uri on the dispatch
object puts it back:
> {code}
> disp.getRequestContext().put(Dispatch.SOAPACTION_URI_PROPERTY, soapAction);
> {code}
> So there's a workaround possible (where your dispatch use case can accommodate it) but
the problem is that CXF shouldn't require WS-Addressing enabled to set the Content-Type header's
action attribute automatically.
> This is a bigger problem in SOAP 1.1 where many services rely on the SOAPAction header
and CXF is sending a blank SOAPAction header by default unless WS-Addressing is enabled.
