    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Not A Problem
    • Affects Version/s: 2.7.4

      Ubuntu Linux 12.04 with Java SE 6 / Solaris 5.10 with Java SE 6

    • Estimated Complexity:


      I'm using the following configuration in cxf.xml:


      <bean id="logInbound" class="[...]">
      <property name="prettyLogging" value="true" />

      <bean id="logOutbound" class="[...]">
      <property name="prettyLogging" value="true" />


      <ref bean="logInbound" />

      <ref bean="logOutbound" />

      <ref bean="logInbound" />

      <ref bean="logOutbound" />

      <cxf:logging />



      where logInbound and logOutbound are Spring bean instances of classes extending LoggingInInterceptor and LoggingOutInterceptor, respectively (class names are irrelevant).

      After upgrade from version 2.3.2 to 2.7.4 it seems that the prettyLogging value is ignored for intercepted outbound messages.

      From what I could observe during a debugging session, the problem is that there are actually two interceptors, logging outbound messages and sharing the same stream. First one of them is logOutbound. The second one is some internal instance of LoggingOutInterceptor.

      The internal instance is called first and used to format the message. Since it has pretty printing disabled, the message is unformatted. When my instance (logOutbound) is called, it verifies that the message has already been logged into the stream and doesn't repeat this step.

      Finally the cached and unformatted message is logged and the prettyLogging property is effectively ignored.
