Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-6869) Consider adding Spring Boot starter
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2016 09:30:59 GMT


Sergey Beryozkin commented on CXF-6869:

Hi Vedran, 

Good to hear from you, sure, on one hand we have a Spring Boot blueprint recommending a certain
module structure. On the other hand we have CXF specifics, mainly the fact that some people
do only JAX-WS, some - only JAX-RS, and I feel that taking care of these two different styles
in a single auto-configure will sooner or later get us into the corner. 

The last thing which concerns me is whether our Spring Boot module structure will be deemed
 to be meeting precisely that blueprint or not. As far as I'm concerned the main criteria
is to make CXF work well with SpringBoot.

If putting the code into a starter is a really bad style in Spring Boot world then perhaps
we can consider introducing front-end specific auto-configure support. We can continue operating
with a single one  for as long as it proves realistically possible of course, adding one more
auto-configure module is not something I'm keen to do but IMHO we should exclude this option
should it prove necessary. 

Let me try to move our chat into a new direction for a sec :-). So we have CXF endpoints showing
up in a Spring Boot contaner. Now consider this project,

Do you reckon it is a matter of adding few dependencies as in that project for CXF endpoints
being seen in Spring Cloud registry ?

Thanks, 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.
