Using HTTP GET Requests

CXF has built-in support for understanding GET requests, which use the following format:

+http://host/service/OPERATION/PARAM_NAME/PARAM_VALUE+

For example:


       
    
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
@WebService(endpointInterface = "org.mule.samples.echo.components.EchoService",
    serviceName = "echo")
public class EchoComponent implements EchoService
{
    public String echo(String string)
    {
        return string;
    }
}

The above Echo service is hosted in Mule on the endpoint cxf: http://localhost:65081/services/EchoUMO, so you can access the service from a simple web browser by typing the following:

This will send the value "hello" for the string parameter to the echo() method.

Due to a bug in CXF, this is only supported with the JAX-WS frontend.
