Subject Re: Enabling jaxws schema validation through CXF?
Date Tue, 14 Dec 2010 20:37:36 GMT

Thanks for the report.   I just fixed the wsdl_first_soap12 to properly 
validate with the -Pserver flag.    The key was the  log entry of:

Creating Service {}SOAPService from 
class ......

instead of saying "from WSDL".   The way it was being started, it wasn't using 
the wsdl so it couldn't really validate.   I've changed how it's started and 
added the new @SchemaValidation annotation an it now works.  You can grab it 
all from:
if you want.
