Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-6869) Consider adding Spring Boot starter
Date Fri, 27 May 2016 11:48:12 GMT


Sergey Beryozkin commented on CXF-6869:

thanks for the clarification, and in advance, for your patience :-).

So I did experiment with removing @JaxRsConfig from the CXF JAX-RS source - I feel that if
it is what blocks the AutoConfigure feature from being operational in JAX-RS cases then it
is reasonable to ask existing users to import it directly if needed - minor migration issue.
However it did not make any difference as far as loading the auto configuration feature is
concerned - it did not work when I updated the demo to start the application which imports
SpringComponentScanServer (which this time does not bring @JaxRsConfig any longer).  I'm a
bit confused right now :-)

FYI, I'm not sure having SpringComponentScanServer imported for JAX-RS auto configure by default
would work for all the users, there will be cases where they'd prefer to avoid the auto-discovery.

 I'd like to understand first why importing SpringComponentScanServer has side-effects as
far as having the auto-configuration applied. I wonder if it is an ordering issue: importing
SpringComponentScanServer starts a JAX-RS endpoint (in its jaxRsServer() bean) - if CXFServlet
has not been loaded by that time then an embedded CXF Jetty endpoint will be created. So may
be it can be enforced somehow, via a conditional annotation, that SpringComponentScanServer
is processed only after the auto-configuration, if any, has been applied...

Cheers, Sergey

> I've recently authored a PR in Spring Boot to add support for auto-configuration of {{CXFServlet}}
and default CXF's configuration:
> The PR was closed with "won't fix" resolution since Boot team are unwilling to add CXF
as a dependency to the project. Instead a 3rd party starter was suggested.
> The concept of a 3rd party starter is generally encouraged for technologies that don't
have first-class support in projects from Spring portfolio. Such 3rd party starters are listed
> If CXF team is interested, I'm willing to port my PR to CXF.
> Note that the original PR was focused around JAX-WS support, but can be easily expanded
to include JAX-RS support as well.
