Class AbstractFeature

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.cxf.feature.AbstractFeature

public abstract class AbstractFeature
extends java.lang.Object

A Feature is something that is able to customize a Server, Client, or Bus, typically adding capabilities. For instance, there may be a LoggingFeature which configures one of the above to log each of their messages.

By default the initialize methods all delegate to initializeProvider(InterceptorProvider). If you're simply adding interceptors to a Server, Client, or Bus, this allows you to add them easily.
