[SWS-702] sws:annotation-driven does not pick up @Endpoint annotations on classes that are JDK proxies Created: 04/Apr/11  Updated: 04/May/12  Resolved: 18/Oct/11

We essentially have an app context loaded by the MessageDispatcherServlet that does the following:

<bean id="ws.myWebService" class="foo.bar.MyWebServiceImpl"/>
<aop:aspectj-autoproxy />
<bean class="foo.bar.MyCustomAspect"/>

The MyWebServiceImpl looks like this:

public class MyWebServiceImpl implements MyWebService {

  @PayloadRoot(namespace = "http://my.foo.bar", localPart = "myWebService")
  @MyCustomAnnotation // picked up by MyCustomAspect to proxy this class
  public MyResponseDocument getFactInfo(@RequestPayload MyRequestDocument request) {

As a result of the @MyCustomAnnotation, the MyWebServiceImpl will be JDK proxied. Because of this the @Endpoint is not picked up. If we remove the custom aspect the @Endpoint is indeed picked up.

For now, I have added the following to the app context as a workaround:

<aop:config proxy-target-class="true"/>

Note that this seems to be similar to SWS-262

Hey Erwin,

Changing back to unassigned, that's the way I track issues I have to take a look at.

I can't seem to reproduce this. I have a test case which reproduces this scenario, but it works for me (with or without using CGlib proxies).

See https://src.springframework.org/svn/spring-ws/trunk/core/src/test/java/org/springframework/ws/server/endpoint/mapping/PayloadRootAnnotationMethodEndpointMappingTest.java and the related app context: https://src.springframework.org/svn/spring-ws/trunk/core/src/test/resources/org/springframework/ws/server/endpoint/mapping/applicationContext.xml.

Let me know what I am missing.

I think you missed the "implements MyWebService" part.
In your test the OtherBean does not implement an interface that defines the "void doIt()" method. As a result JDK proxying is never even considered (it only works with interfaces) and you get the effects of "aop:config proxy-target-class="true"" automatically.

I hope I finally fixed this.

Take a look at https://src.springframework.org/svn/spring-ws/trunk/core/src/test/java/org/springframework/ws/server/endpoint/mapping/JdkProxyRegistrationTest.java and the related app context: https://src.springframework.org/svn/spring-ws/trunk/core/src/test/resources/org/springframework/ws/server/endpoint/mapping/jdk-proxy-registration.xml

Note, however, that the annotations have to be on the interface, and cannot only be on the implementing class. This is due to the fact that the AOP target might change at runtime, and it would be very inefficient to introspect the endpoint each time a web service request comes in. This is consistent with Spring MVC (see SPR-5084).
