Deserializing SOAP response with ~4K small objects is taking 1-2 mins

      I'm hoping that this is the right place to report this, but apologies if not. For a number of years now I've been using CXF in my product as a WSDL-generated SOAP client. Everything works really, really well. In the past week I've seen a situation with a particular end user where deserialization of a SOAP response that contains a list of ~4K small objects is taking 1-2 minutes. I've updated to 3.3.1 hoping that would resolve the issue, but it still remains. I know (or at least strongly suspect) that it's happening in deserialization because I'm logging immediately before and after the SOAP call from the perspective of the calling client, and I've turned on in/out logging interceptors. Basically I see the following in the log (with sensitive info redacted):

      2019-04-07 23:18:38,364 [ 20299] DEBUG - ij.builder.ForceComBuilderUtil - Before listMetadata() call.

      2019-04-07 23:20:20,095 [ 122030] DEBUG - ij.builder.ForceComBuilderUtil - After listMetadata() call.
      2019-04-07 23:20:20,095 [ 122030] DEBUG - ij.builder.ForceComBuilderUtil - listMetadata() returned 4299 results.

      I've tried to reproduce this behavior, but so far unsuccessfully. I have an environment that includes about half this number of results, and the same call takes ~2-3 seconds end-to-end.

      Any idea what might be going on or how to get to the bottom of the issue?

      Again, if this belongs somewhere else please just let me know, and thanks in advance for the assistance.
