Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-5427) set-jaxb-validation-event-handler=false not working when fault message is changed.
Date Thu, 28 Nov 2013 06:39:35 GMT
Pranab Baishya created CXF-5427:

             Summary: set-jaxb-validation-event-handler=false not working when fault message
is changed.
                 Key: CXF-5427
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: JAXB Databinding
    Affects Versions: 2.6.2
         Environment: CXF 2.6.2, JAXB2.2.4
            Reporter: Pranab Baishya

We have a requirement to consumed web services for non-breaking changes in the producer web
services so that we need not generate/ recompile CXF generated clients code every time for
some non breaking changes in the Web service producer/server.

The changes that can happen in the producer web services or server are as follows:

1.Changes to the Data Structures such as addition of a new element at the end for both inbound
and outbound messages.

This has an impact on the CXF client as if the data structure changes, in the client code,
we will get marshal and unmarshall error. To resolve the issue, we did a small fix to add
@EndpointProperties({@EndpointProperty(key = "set-jaxb-validation-event-handler", value="false")})

in the Service interfaces code generated by CXF . This fix seems to fix the problem when the
message are in request and response format.

But, the above fix is not taking care of the scenerio when the CXF client is receiving a fault
error message and there is a change in the structure of fault error message say, a new field
is added to the message which is not available in the cxf generated code.

The XML structure of response in error scenario:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<s:Envelope xmlns:s="">
      <faultstring xml:lang="en-US">eInvalidArguments</faultstring>
        <Error xmlns="<abc>" xmlns:i="">
          <CorrelationId xmlns="<abc>">1234</CorrelationId>
          <DateTime xmlns="<abc>">XXXX-XX-XXTXX:XX:XX.XXXXXXXX</DateTime>
          <Description xmlns="<abc>">eInvalidArguments</Description>
          <InternalDescription xmlns="<abc>">Access denied to this user</InternalDescription>
          <UserToken xmlns:a="<abc>">

Here, internalErrorCode is a newly added element in the webservice which is breaking our client
code by throwing "unwinding now org.apache.cxf.interceptor.Fault: Unmarshalling Error: unexpected
element" because the in the generated client code InternalErrorCode field doesnt exists. 

We are not getting the marshal and unmarshall exception in case of proper request and response
message even though there is change in the inbound or outbound message.

Can we fix the issue quickly or CXF provide any quick fix for the fault error scenerio when
there is a change in the error structure. Pleas suggest.
