CXF Component Reference

When sending requests to an external web service, the recommended approach is to use the Web Service Consumer rather than the CXF Module.
  • The CXF Component was formerly known as the SOAP Connector.

  • In the XSLT-generated sections that follow, the enableMuleSoapHeaders parameter is currently not enabled and has no effect.

Configuration Reference

Jaxws service

Table 1. Attributes of <jaxws-service…​>
Name Type Required Default Description

bindingId

string

no

The binding that should be used for this endpoint. It defaults to the SOAP binding by default.

port

string

no

The WSDL port name of your service.

namespace

string

no

The service namespace. (As of 2.2.1)

service

string

no

The WSDL service name of your service.

serviceClass

string

no

The class CXF should use to construct its service model. This is optional, and by default it will use the implementation class of your component, on inbound cxf endpoint. But it is mandatory for outbound endpoint when using "aegis" frontend.

validationEnabled

boolean

no

Whether or not validation should be enabled on this service. Validation only occurs on inbound server messages.

soapVersion

enumeration

no

The soapVersion that is going to be used for this endpoint. The specified version is translated into the corresponding bindingId value. This attribute is useful when there’s need to avoid the creation of the endpoint with the default binding. In case the bindingId attribute is set this attribute will override it. If not set and not specified otherwise CXF defaults to SOAP 1.1 binding

mtomEnabled

boolean

no

Whether or not MTOM (attachment support) is enabled for this endpoint.

wsdlLocation

string

no

The location of the WSDL for your service. If this is a server side endpoint it will served to your users.

enableMuleSoapHeaders

boolean

no

true

Whether or not this endpoint should write Mule SOAP headers which pass along the correlation and ReplyTo information. This is true by default, but the Mule SOAP headers are only triggered in situations where there is an existing correlation ID and the ReplyTo header is set. (As of 2.2.1)

configuration-ref

string

no

The CXF configuration that should be used.

Other transports and modules can extend this if they need to add global elements to the configuration (but consider the more specific elements like abstract-connector first)..
