      Description

      Currently it is necessary to define 3 service properties to export a SOAP or REST service:
      service.exported.interfaces=*
      service.exported.configs=org.apache.cxf.rs
      org.apache.cxf.rs.address=/tasks

      SOAP service:
      service.exported.interfaces=*
      service.exported.configs=org.apache.cxf.ws
      org.apache.cxf.ws.address=/taskservice

      This can be simplified by using the Aries RSA ExportPolicy.

      CXF-DOSGi can define an ExportPolicy service that just looks for the address property and then adds the other two properties.
      This policy has to be configured as a system property to work:
      rsa.export.policy.filter=(name=cxf)

      This makes the TopologyManager pick up the policy.

      Using the ExportPolicy it will then be possible to export services like this:
      REST service:
      org.apache.cxf.rs.address=/tasks

      SOAP service:
      org.apache.cxf.ws.address=/taskservice

      I also considered to make it work by just using the @Webservice and @Path annotations but this does not work as CXF needs an address for the service to export.
      An option would be to create a custom annoation for the address but this would require the user to use a proprietary API. If anyone has a good idea how to improvide this I would be very interested.
