We had a security scan and found that standalone CXF endpoint using http-jetty transport still had HTTP TRACE method enabled. It is considered as a security risk.
It's not a problem if the CXF http-jetty transport is used with Pax Web as Pax Web had already had it's embedded Jetty engine's HTTP TRACE method disabled by default.
So we should disable HTTP TRACE method in JettyHTTPHandler. Please find attached patch.txt for more detail.
