Using (this great library !) cxf in our spring-based product,
and including cxf.xml into our xml configuration,
we (sometimes) face to a startup issue (beans namespace not defined...).
IMHO, this happens because:
- our application does not embed spring 4.2 version (as mentioned into your xml file) but an earlier one.
- application server does not have access to internet (and thus the application can not resolve this xsd file).
Is it possible to modify your xml file by including a version-less declaration ?
We applied this rule into our applications, and it already solves such of issues.
ITOT, from spring 5.0 version, they moved to this behaviour to (as you can see [here | https://jira.spring.io/browse/SPR-13499])
Thanks for any help and feedback.
