Class AddressingFeature

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.xml.ws.WebServiceFeature
      extended by javax.xml.ws.soap.AddressingFeature

public final class AddressingFeature
extends WebServiceFeature

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.

Enabling this feature on the client will cause the JAX-WS runtime to include WS-Addressing headers in SOAP messages.

If the web service developer has not explicitly enabled this feature, it MAY be automatically enabled if the associated WSDL enables WS-Addressing with an implementation recognized WSDL extension element. However, in this version of JAX-WS, there is no standard WSDL extension that a client can rely on to automatically enable WS-Addressing, nor is there a standard default value specified for WS-Addressing Action headers.

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 this 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 RespectBindingFeature for more information on required WSDL extensions.

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. This property only has meaning when used on the endpoint and has no affect when used on the client. By default the required property is false.

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

Since:
JAX-WS 2.1

Constant Field Values

required

protected boolean required
Property for the required feature parameter. When WS-Addressing is enabled, the value of this property will be used to specify if WS-Addressing headers MUST be present on incoming messages. This property only has meaning on the endpoint and has no affect when used on the client.

Constructor Detail

AddressingFeature

public AddressingFeature()
Create an AddressingFeature. The instance created will be enabled.


AddressingFeature

public AddressingFeature(boolean enabled)
Create an AddressingFeature

Parameters:
enabled - specifies whether this feature should be enabled or not.

AddressingFeature

public AddressingFeature(boolean enabled,
                         boolean required)
Create an AddressingFeature

Parameters:
enabled - specifies whether this feature should be enabled or not.
required - specifies whether WS-Addressing headers MUST be present on incoming messages. This property only has meaning on the endpoint and has no affect when used on the client.
Method Detail

getID

public String getID()
Get the unique identifier for this WebServiceFeature.

Specified by:
getID in class WebServiceFeature
Returns:
the unique identifier for this feature.

isRequired

public boolean isRequired()
Gets the boolean value used to determine if WS-Addressing headers MUST be present on incoming messages. This property only has meaning on the endpoint, and has no affect when used on the client.

Returns:
the current required value
