Transport Modules

CXF includes its own transport abstraction layer to hide transport specific details from the binding and front end layers. Currently supported transports include: HTTP, HTTPs, HTTP-Jetty, HTTP-OSGI, Servlet, local, JMS, In-VM and many others via the Camel transport for CXF such as SMTP/POP3, TCP and Jabber.

Notes

coloc

cxf-rt-bindings-object-[version].jar

CXF feature that allows automatic detection of when a client and a service are stuck on the same bus and then bypasses much of the interceptor chains during processing.

CORBA

cxf-rt-bindings-corba-[version].jar

 

HTTP

cxf-rt-bindings-http-[version].jar

 

object

cxf-rt-bindings-coloc-[version].jar

CXF feature that allows (when combined with the local transport), directly passing objects from client/server in the same bus without marshalling.

Pure XML

cxf-rt-bindings-xml-[version].jar

 

SOAP

cxf-rt-bindings-soap-[version].jar

 

Data Binding Modules

Data bindings implement the mapping between XML elements and Java objects. Data bindings convert data to and from XML, produce XML schema, and provide support for wsdl2java code generation. Not all data bindings support all of this functionality. At very least, a data binding must provide the data conversion.
