getEndpointReference

EndpointReference getEndpointReference(Element... referenceParameters)
Returns the EndpointReference for this endpoint.

If the Binding for this bindingProvider is either SOAP1.1/HTTP or SOAP1.2/HTTP, then a W3CEndpointReference MUST be returned.

Parameters:
referenceParameters - Reference parameters to be associated with the returned EndpointReference instance.
Returns:
EndpointReference of the endpoint associated with this WebServiceContext. If the returned EndpointReference is of type W3CEndpointReference then it MUST contain the the specified referenceParameters.
Throws:
IllegalStateException - This exception is thrown if the method is called while no request is being serviced.

getEndpointReference

<T extends EndpointReference> T getEndpointReference(Class<T> clazz,
                                                     Element... referenceParameters)
Returns the EndpointReference associated with this endpoint.

Parameters:
clazz - The type of EndpointReference that MUST be returned.
referenceParameters - Reference parameters to be associated with the returned EndpointReference instance.
Returns:
