Xerces definitely validates such patterns.

Could you distil the use in a small test case (including WSDL, configuration, code)?

I've put a debugger on SoapHeaderInterceptor and I can see:


being called. I'm beginning to think the problem lies in the Xerces schema validator?

Subject: Schema validation of SOAP headers


I note this topic has been discussed before and I have discovered a JIRA issue (
However, after upgrading to CXF 2.6.3, I note the SOAP headers are not being fully validated.

Consider this schema extract:

    <xs:simpleType name="MessageTypeIDType">
        <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
            <xs:minLength value="1" />
            <xs:pattern value="[0-9a-zA-Z]+" />

    <xs:complexType name="RequestHeaderType">
            <xs:element name="MessageTypeID" type="infra:MessageTypeIDType">
                    <xs:documentation> docs </xs:documentation>

And this extract from the WSDL:

                <wsdl:message name="DIRequestMessage">
                                <wsdl:part name="requestHeader" element="RequestHeaderType
" />
                <wsdl:portType name="DIPortType_v1_0">
                                <wsdl:operation name="di">
                                                <wsdl:input message="tns:DIRequestMessage"
                                                <wsdl:fault name="fault" message="tns:Fault"

(I've had to copy, paste and remove some context but I hope it demonstrates what we've implemented.)

And finally, this jaxws:endpoint:

  <bean class="org.apache.cxf.feature.LoggingFeature"/>
   <entry key="schema-validation-enabled" value="true" /> </jaxws:properties>

When I connect to it via SOAP UI, I note CXF correctly validates the existence of the MessageTypeID
element but not the value to ensure it meets the restriction.

Any input most welcome.
