Apache CXF supports WS-Addressing for JAX-WS applications. This chapter explains how to deploy WS-Addressing in the Apache CXF runtime environment.

18.1. Introduction to WS-Addressing


WS-Addressing is a specification that allows services to communicate addressing information in a transport neutral way. It consists of two parts:
  • A structure for communicating a reference to a Web service endpoint
  • A set of Message Addressing Properties (MAP) that associate addressing information with a particular message

Supported specifications

Apache CXF supports both the WS-Addressing 2004/08 specification and the WS-Addressing 2005/03 specification.
