The attributes of the jaxws:endpoint element configure the basic properties of the endpoint. These properties include the address of the endpoint, the class that implements the endpoint, and the bus that hosts the endpoint.

Table 1.1 describes the attribute of the jaxws:endpoint element.

Table 1.1. Attributes for Configuring a JAX-WS Service Provider Using the jaxws:endpoint Element

AttributeDescription
id Specifies a unique identifier that other configuration elements can use to refer to the endpoint.
implementor Specifies the class implementing the service. You can specify the implementation class using either the class name or an ID reference to a Spring bean configuring the implementation class. This class must be on the classpath.
implementorClass Specifies the class implementing the service. This attribute is useful when the value provided to the implementor attribute is a reference to a bean that is wrapped using Spring AOP.
address Specifies the address of an HTTP endpoint. This value overrides the value specified in the services contract.
wsdlLocation Specifies the location of the endpoint's WSDL contract. The WSDL contract's location is relative to the folder from which the service is deployed.
endpointName Specifies the value of the service's wsdl:port element's name attribute. It is specified as a QName using the format ns:name where ns is the namespace of the wsdl:port element.
serviceName Specifies the value of the service's wsdl:service element's name attribute. It is specified as a QName using the format ns:name where ns is the namespace of the wsdl:service element.
publish Specifies if the service should be automatically published. If this is set to false, the developer must explicitly publish the endpoint.
bus Specifies the ID of the Spring bean configuring the bus used to manage the service endpoint. This is useful when configuring several endpoints to use a common set of features.
bindingUri Specifies the ID of the message binding the service uses. A list of valid binding IDs is provided in Appendix A.
name Specifies the stringified QName of the service's wsdl:port element. It is specified as a QName using the format {ns}localPart. ns is the namespace of the wsdl:port element and localPart is the value of the wsdl:port element's name attribute.
abstract Specifies if the bean is an abstract bean. Abstract beans act as parents for concrete bean definitions and are not instantiated. The default is false. Setting this to true instructs the bean factory not to instantiate the bean.
depends-on Specifies a list of beans that the endpoint depends on being instantiated before it can be instantiated.
createdFromAPI

Specifies that the user created that bean using Fuse Services Framework APIs, such as Endpoint.publish() or Service.getPort().

The default is false.

Setting this to true does the following:

  • Changes the internal name of the bean by appending .jaxws-endpoint to its id

  • Makes the bean abstract

publishedEndpointUrl The URL that is placed in the address element of the generated WSDL. If this value is not specified, the value of the address attribute is used. This attribute is useful when the "public" URL is not be the same as the URL on which the service is deployed.

In addition to the attributes listed in Table 1.1, you might need to use multiple xmlns:shortName attributes to declare the namespaces used by the endpointName and serviceName attributes.
