Subject CXF - JAX-WS - Set HTTP Response Code
Date Fri, 09 May 2014 01:15:30 GMT

I have a CXF JAX-WS service where custom authentication and authorization is done using a
class, SoapAuthInterceptor which extends AbstractPhaseInterceptor<Message>.

When authentication fails I want to set HTTP Response code 401 and when authorization fails
I want to set HTTP Response code 403.

In the method handleMessage(Message message) of SoapAuthInterceptor I have tried the following
but it still only send response code 500.

If (Authorization fails)
HttpServletResponse httpServletResponse = (HttpServletResponse)message.get("HTTP.RESPONSE");
httpServletResponse.addHeader("Response-Code", "403");
message.put("HTTP.RESPONSE", httpServletResponse);

throw new AuthenticationException("Forbidden 403"); // This goes as SOAP Fault in the response

Is there a way to set HTTP response code in this case. Please help.

Thanks in advance.
