The cxf:bean: URI is used to bind an Apache CXF endpoint to a route and has the following general syntax:


Where CxfEndpointID is the ID of a bean created using the cxf:cxfEndpoint element, which configures the details of the WS endpoint. You can append options to this URI (where the options are described in detail in CXF in Apache Camel Documentation). To enable payload mode, you must set the URI option, dataFormat=PAYLOAD.

For example, to start a route with an endpoint in PAYLOAD mode, where the endpoint is configured by the customer-ws bean, define the route as follows:

    <from uri="cxf:bean:customer-ws?dataFormat=PAYLOAD"/>

Apache CXF deploys the WS endpoint into a Jetty servlet container instance and the address attribute of cxf:cxfEndpoint is therefore used to configure the addressing information for the endpoint in the Jetty container.

Specify a complete HTTP URL, including the host and IP port (the value of the IP port effectively identifies the target Jetty container). Typically, for a Jetty container, you specify the host as, which is interpreted as a wildcard that matches every IP network interface on the local machine (that is, if deployed on a multi-homed host, Jetty opens a listening port on every network card). For example, to deploy the endpoint to the custom Jetty container listening on IP port, 9191:


If you want to configure a secure endpoint (secured by SSL), you would specify the https: scheme in the address.
