Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-5320) HTTP Conduits allow for little flexibility when matching URLs

             Summary: HTTP Conduits allow for little flexibility when matching URLs
                 Key: CXF-5320
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.7.7, 2.6.10
            Reporter: Raul Kripalani

The current architecture to configure HTTP Conduits in Spring doesn't allow for enough flexibility
when matching against endpoint URLs.

URLs can change between one environment and the other, not just the host and port, but also
the context. Most developers don't have a guarantee of what URLs will look like in upper environments,
now or in the future.

Ideally the matching regex would be parameterized, but this is impossible because the pattern
goes in the bean name, and Spring won't resolve placeholders for bean names!

Something like this is not possible:

    <http:conduit name="${service.url}">
        <http:client ConnectionTimeout="${service.timeouts.connect}" 

A way to achieve this this level of parameterization is to use the HTTPTransportActivator
Managed Service Factory. But this mechanism is only available in OSGi containers.

I propose adding an 'url' attribute to the http conduit XML element, so that the pattern can
be resolved from a property file.
