Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-6064) Improve WADL Generator Extensibility for ID generation

             Summary: Improve WADL Generator Extensibility for ID generation
                 Key: CXF-6064
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: JAX-RS
    Affects Versions: 3.0.1
            Reporter: Mikhail S

WADLGenerator class is not extensible and prevents extensions for simple customizations.

Example: We would like to use custom IDs on the resource and methods. The mechanism provided
in CXF requires to either use {{@XmlRootElement}} or rely on the default mechanism which will
use fully qualified class name as the resource ID. 

Our beans are annotated with {{@WebService}} annotation (and other metadata) so it would only
require a slight extension of the WADL generator to utilize a different strategy. 

However, this task becomes quite unattainable given the current design of the WADLGenerator.
It basically requires to create (and maintain) a copy of the class that extends WADL generator.

In general, WADL generator extensibility could be reviewed (at least private vs protected
methods, allowing additional strategy injection for ID generation that defaults to some built-in
