Subject RE: customizing WSSConfig properties (other than the action map) using spring configuration
Date Mon, 22 Apr 2013 08:12:58 GMT
Hi David,

It seems there is no easy way to do it now. Only a solution I see is to overload handleMessage()
method of WSS4JOutInterceptor and copy&paste CXF code.
I think we can provide a message contextual property to use preconfigured WSSConfig:

                    WSSConfig config  = 
                    if (config != null) {
                        config = WSSConfig.getNewInstance();
Patch is welcome.

@Colm: do you see more elegant solution of this?
