Apache CXF is an open source web service framework that provides an easy to use, standard-based programming model for developing web services.

Apache CXF Web Service Development

Exactly what does CXF stand for? The project was sponsored by IONA. Both Celtix and XFire, while in their initial versions, had many things in common and therefore the developers of both projects decided to bring out the best of both worlds and planned a better 2.

The communities of both these projects entered incubation at the Apache Software foundation to develop version 2.

It took about 20 months at the Apache incubator before CXF finally rolled out. The framework which had its first release as v2.

Picking up a framework is always a challenging task. There are many web service frameworks available today. Historically, there was Axis 1 which evolved into Axis 2, providing better flexibility and enhanced support for web service standards. Every web services framework aims to provide a robust infrastructure for the developer to conveniently build, deploy, and publish the web services. So which one is the better framework?

That’s a million dollar question! We choose CXF rather than other web service frameworks as it supports all the leading web service standards and provides a simplified programming model for developing SOAP and RESTful-based web services, along with options for various other application protocols. CXF provides a flexible deployment model for implementing web services. More specifically, we choose CXF as it provides the following capabilities.

Web service standards define the norms of a web service implementation with respect to its interoperability. The standards ensure that a web service is accessed independently of the client platform. The framework provides the following web service standards support: For instance, WS-Security specification is about how integrity and confidentiality can be enforced on web services using a standard method.


The WS-I Basic Profile is a specification from the Web Services Interoperability industry consortium WS-Iwhich provides a reasonable set of rules and guidelines that are best suited for achieving web services interoperability.

The rules and specifications are applied to a WSDL file, as the said file serves as the contract between service provider and service consumer in SOAP-based web services. Adhering to WS-I basic profiles ensures that your services can interoperate between different platforms. Using the POJO programming model simplifies testing and keeps things simple.

POJO makes it easier to integrate with other frameworks like Spring, which provides various services such as transactions, and conforms to POJO in a standardized way. In Chapter 3, we will look at how to use the frontend programming APIs for developing web services. CXF provides support for Maven and Ant integration for build and dependency management. Some of the tools supported are as follows:. In Chapter 8, we will look at some of the commonly used CXF tools which assist in web service development.

In Chapters 6 and 7, we will look at these concepts in detail and how they are used for designing and developing RESTful web services. Data binding is the key for all web service development. CXF provides data binding components that transparently handle the mapping for you.

All of the transport protocols are explained in the context of web service development in Chapter 4. Non-XML binding provides more choices for integration with existing infrastructure which support these formats. The framework is developed with a mission to provide a robust infrastructure for web services development and to ease the development process. For instance, transaction capabilities can be applied declaratively to POJO web services through the Spring transaction infrastructure support.

Using the Spring framework simplifies the overall configuration of web services and eases deployment through XML-based configuration files.

You will look at how CXF provides Spring configuration support, which eases configuration and deployment while developing web services. CXF ppackt a flexible deployment model where xpache can be developed and unit tested in a standalone environment, and promoted for deployment in an application server environment.
