Implementing Basic Authentication with CXF

September 7th 2018 Apache CXF Java

Code Generation with Maven CXF Plugin

August 31st 2018 Apache CXF Maven Java

Apache CXF is a common choice for calling SOAP web services from Java. It's most convenient to use when you generate proxy client classes from the web service WSDL file. There's a command line tool available for that but if you don't want to put the generated sources in source control, you'll probably prefer the Maven plugin.
