Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-6064) Improve WADL Generator Extensibility for ID generation
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2014 14:15:12 GMT


Mikhail S commented on CXF-6064:

Yes, it is the case when the resource locator is a JAXB bean. We currently annotate subresources
with the @XmlRootElement while 3.0.3 is not released yet.

> 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
