Subject Re: What kind of Web Service is this?
Date Mon, 02 Nov 2009 16:59:45 GMT

it's a pure HTTP service, and in CXF you can write a code which can consume it using the http/restful
client api [1], ex :

WebClient client = WebClient.createClient(http://service);
SomeResponse response = client.query("key1", "value").query("key2", "value").get(SomeResponse.class);

where SomeResponse.class has been generated from the schema.
We do not yet provide the tools for generating the client code (it is on the map though I'm
not sure the new tool will make it into 
2.3) though but I'm hoping you can get the classes generated from the schema with the help
of the xsd plugin....

cheers, Sergey
