On this page, we are going to configure the cxf-se-su service unit to provide our service .

Configuring pom.xml

Changing the project name

In order to make the build output a little bit more comprehensible, we first change the project name in the generated pom.xml file.

  <name>CXF WSDL Tutorial :: CXF SE SU</name>

Adding version of cxf to pom.xml

We must specify version of CXF.

	<cxf-version> 2.0.7</cxf-version>

Adding org.apache.cxf plugin

We add this plugin to the generated pom.xml file to element plugins.


Where service.wsdl is WSDL file, which we made in my-cxf-bc-su. We must copy this WSDL file from my-cxf-bc-su/src/main/resources to

Implementing generated ExampleService.java

We must implement our service in java. In our example, it's HelloImpl.java

package org.apache.servicemix.examples;

import javax.jws.WebService;
import javax.xml.ws.Holder;

import org.apache.servicemix.examples.types.SayHello;
import org.apache.servicemix.examples.types.SayHelloResponse;

@WebService(serviceName = "HelloService", targetNamespace = "http://servicemix.apache.org/examples", endpointInterface = "org.apache.servicemix.examples.Hello")
public class HelloImpl implements Hello {

    public void sayHello(Holder<String> name)
        throws UnknownWordFault
        if (name.value == null || name.value.length() == 0) {
           org.apache.servicemix.examples.types.UnknownWordFault fault = new org.apache.servicemix.examples.types.UnknownWordFault();
            throw new UnknownWordFault(null, fault);
      name.value = "Hi " + name.value;


Configuring xbean.xml

Next, we will have to configure our new SU to really provide some services. We do this by modifying the file named xbean.xml in the src/main/resources directory of our my-cxf-se-su module.

      <bean class="org.apache.servicemix.examples.HelloImpl" />

Next, we are going to create service assembly.

Things to remember

  • You specify the plugin for a SU in Maven's pom.xml file
  • In ServiceMix, most service units will be configured by a file named xbean.xml
