Bouncy Castle/JCE and Xalan requirement for WS-Security
To use the WS-Security features of CXF, you need to obtain a JCE crypto provider
that implements the algorithms that you plan to use. One option is to download
the Bouncy Castle jar from:
and add that to the lib directory or classpath.
Building the Samples
Building the samples included in the binary distribution is easy. Change to
the samples directory and follow the build instructions in the README.txt file
included with each sample.
The WS-Security configuration mechanisms may change between this release and
the next one as we add in support for WS-SecurityPolicy and WS-Trust.
A static reply queue in the JMS conduit can not be shared for several instances of the service. Please use a dynamic reply queue or different queue names for the instances. (See discussion on the mailing list)
