MTOM + schema validation creates invalid SOAP FAULT response



    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 3.2.6, 3.2.7
    • Fix Version/s: 3.3.6, 3.4.0
    • Environment:

      The service itself is running as a WAR deployment on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS within a Apache Tomcat 8.5.32 using JDK 1.8.0_161.

    • Estimated Complexity:


      Hello! We had built a jaxws webservice based on cxf 3.2.6/3.2.7. The Java code was created from a given WSDL by using the maven plugin "cxf-codegen-plugin". In the provided cxf-servlet.xml on server side there is both mtom and schema validation enabled on the jaxws:endpoint definition:

          <entry key="schema-validation-enabled" value="true" />
          <entry key="mtom-enabled" value="true"/>

      In case of an invalid validation result (see attachment server_validation.txt) it seems, that the created SOAP FAULT message is corrupt so that the client could not parse the message (see attachment error.txt):

      javax.xml.ws.soap.SOAPFaultException: Error reading XMLStreamReader: Unexpected character '-' (code 45) in prolog; expected '<'
      at [row,col {unknown-source}]: [2,1]
      Caused by: com.ctc.wstx.exc.WstxUnexpectedCharException: Unexpected character '-' (code 45) in prolog; expected '<'
      at [row,col {unknown-source}]: [2,1]
      at com.ctc.wstx.sr.StreamScanner.throwUnexpectedChar(StreamScanner.java:653)
      at com.ctc.wstx.sr.BasicStreamReader.nextFromProlog(BasicStreamReader.java:2133)
      at com.ctc.wstx.sr.BasicStreamReader.next(BasicStreamReader.java:1181)
      at com.ctc.wstx.sr.BasicStreamReader.nextTag(BasicStreamReader.java:1204)
      at org.apache.cxf.binding.soap.interceptor.ReadHeadersInterceptor.handleMessage(ReadHeadersInterceptor.java:173)

      The message itself seems to contain an additional, non referenced boundary (see attachment client_fault.txt).

      What might be the problem here? If we deactivate the complete MTOM feature by removing it from the endpoint definition the fault message could be successfully processed.

      Thanks in andvance!
