Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-4289) Coping Request SOAP Headers to Fault response
Date Sun, 06 May 2012 09:56:59 GMT
Andrei Shakirin created CXF-4289:

             Summary: Coping Request SOAP Headers to Fault response
                 Key: CXF-4289
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Andrei Shakirin
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: JAXWSMethodInvoker.patch


Actually JAXWSMethodInvoker and AbstractJAXWSMethodInvoker contain code to copy request soap
headers (except security one) to SOAP Fault: AbstractJAXWSMethodInvoker.updateHeader().

I see some use cases when it is not really desired:

1) Request SOAP headers contains some labelling information about request elements and they
make sense only with request
2) Request SOAP headers extending request elements with meta-information

If request headers are copied into fault response, they can be invalid in response context
and cause undesired effects:

a) it makes response processing on the client side more difficult, especially if processing
interceptor is called before incoming fault message is recognized and placed into exchange.getInFaultMessage()
b) response fault message has larger size

Proposal is to define context property that give user the possibility to switch-off coping
request headers into fault response.
Patch is attached.
