Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-5354) faultTo address is ignored when fault is thrown
Date Wed, 23 Oct 2013 02:21:42 GMT
Jesse Pangburn created CXF-5354:

             Summary: faultTo address is ignored when fault is thrown
                 Key: CXF-5354
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: WS-* Components
    Affects Versions: 2.7.7
            Reporter: Jesse Pangburn

I have a Provider based service and find that with WS-Addressing enabled, it doesn't handle
FaultTo addresses properly.  The case I found that caused this is when I turned on Schema
Validation and sent a request that doesn't match the schema, then it throws a fault but instead
sends the reply to the replyTo address.  I then tried using a bogus mustUnderstand header
to cause a fault to see if it was just related to the schema validation, but it has the same

Here's a sample request message to cause this (using mustUnderstand header so you don't have
to setup schema validation to test):
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="">
    <Action xmlns="">anything</Action>
    <MessageID xmlns="">urn:uuid:2eae8433-d42a-4749-b053-f5b5805fe8e9</MessageID>
    <To xmlns="">http://localhost:9003/xdsregistryb</To>
    <ReplyTo xmlns="">
    <FaultTo xmlns="">
    <bogus soap:mustUnderstand="true">this junk will fault</bogus>

Note the ReplyTo is http://localhost:9003/replyBack and the FaultTo is http://localhost:9003/faultBack.
 When I send to my Provider service, the log file shows the response going to the replyBack
url, but the To address in WS-Addressing header shows the faultBack url- so it's halfway right!
 This is the case with both schema validation faults and the above example of bogus mustUnderstand

Here's the Wireshark network trace (so there is no possibility of bad logging being the issue):
POST /replyBack HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/soap+xml; charset=UTF-8
Accept: */*
User-Agent: Apache CXF 2.7.7
Cache-Control: no-cache
Pragma: no-cache
Host: localhost:9003
Connection: keep-alive
Content-Length: 706

<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap=""><soap:Header><Action
xmlns=""/><MessageID xmlns="">urn:uuid:6a5190fc-256f-428c-9e5e-8b79520bbf0c</MessageID><To
xml:lang="en">MustUnderstand headers: [bogus] are not understood.</soap:Text></soap:Reason></soap:Fault></soap:Body></soap:Envelope>

Sorry, wiki markup is making bogus in red, not intentional.  See how the address listed at
the top doesn't match the WS-Addressing To address?  With anonymous replyTo address then you
get the fault back on the same synchronous request channel, and it still shows the /faultBack
url in the To address.
