      Description

      Some of the links from the CXF documentation web pages to the Javadoc for WSS4J classes are dead. I think this is because CXF is written against WSS4J 1.6, and the current Apache WSS4J version is 2.0, which has moved some classes around to different packages. I don't know if that's as far as the incompatibilities go.

      Example:
      In the WS-Security documentation page at https://cxf.apache.org/docs/ws-security.html, it links to:
      WSHandlerConstants -> http://ws.apache.org/wss4j/apidocs/org/apache/ws/security/handler/WSHandlerConstants.html
      WS -> http://ws.apache.org/wss4j/apidocs/org/apache/ws/security/WSConstants.html
      Both those pages are 404.

      In the new WSS4J 2.0 doco which is what's currently posted on the main Apache WSS4J site, there are similar looking classes under different packages, at org.apache.wss4j.dom.WSConstants and org.apache.wss4j.dom.handler.WSHandlerConstants. I don't know enough about WSS4J and CXF's usage of it to know whether the links can be updated to point to the current WSS4J doco, or if they should point to version-specific 1.6.x apidocs, or what.

      Those are the dead WSS4J links I saw. I don't know if there are any others, or if there are other 1.6-to-2.0 incompatibilities that might render linked info on non-404 apidoc pages incorrect for CXF's usage.
