I was packaging the CXF jars(e.g.cxf-rt-core-2.6.2.jar ) into a OSGi bundle then use it to create web service. In my scenario, it is found that if there are respect binding resources defined in the .war/META-INF/extensions.xml, it will not be properly loaded and will caused the "Unknown wsdl binding extension" error.
After investigation, it's found that in the org.apache.cxf.wsdl11.WSDLManagerImpl.registerInitialXmlExtensions()method, the classloader is got by the following line:
initialExtensions = PropertiesLoaderUtils.loadAllProperties(resource,
And caused the classes defined in .war/META-INF/extensions.xml was not correctly loaded.
I checked the similar scenario in org.apache.cxf.catalog.OASISCatalogManager.loadContextCatalogs and found it get classload like this:
So I tried to refine the classloader in WSDLManagerImpl like this and now it works in my test. Could someone help review this patch? Thanks in advance.
