Annotation Type Addressing


@Target(value=TYPE)
@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
@Documented
@WebServiceFeatureAnnotation(id="http://www.w3.org/2005/08/addressing/module",
                             bean=AddressingFeature.class)
public @interface Addressing

This feature represents the use of WS-Addressing with either the SOAP 1.1/HTTP or SOAP 1.2/HTTP binding. Using this feature with any other binding is NOT required.

The following describes the effects of this feature with respect to be enabled or disabled:

The required property can be used to specify if WS-Addressing headers MUST be present on incoming messages. By default the required property is false.

The definition of this annotation is incomplete in this release of JAX-WS as there is no standard way to convey the use of WS-Addressing via a WSDL and there is no standard definition for the default value of WS-Addressing Action headers; however, the runtime behavior of this annotation is well-defined. It is intended that a future version of JAX-WS will require the use of the standard mechanism to convey the use of WS-Addressing via WSDL and default values for WS-Addressing Action headers as defined by the W3C WG on WS-Addressing.

To write a portable endpoint and its corresponding client with this version of JAX-WS, an endpoint MUST explicitly specify what WS-Addressing Actions are to be used via the Action and FaultAction annotations. The client MUST explicitly enable addresssing via the AddressingFeature, and for each invocation, the client MUST explicitly set the BindingProvider.SOAPACTION_URI_PROPERTY. After the W3C WG on WS-Addressing has specified how the use of WS-Addressing is specified in the WSDL, and what the default value must be for Action headers, a future version of JAX-WS will remove these requirements.

See Web Services Addressing - Core and Web Services Addressing 1.0 - SOAP Binding for more information on WS-Addressing.

Since:
JAX-WS 2.1
