I would like some clarification on the future of web services
in CF. Right now I use CF 7 RPC/encoded CFCs which communicates
with a Java client product currently using the older JWSDP 1.6 for
web services. However the new Java SOA with WS-Security has been
out for a while but I cannot convert to it because it doesn't
support the outdated RPC/encoded format and CF 7 does not handle
Document/Literal properly. CF 7 does not properly handle cfproperty
element arrays in publishing Document/Literal web services (well
documented problem with CF and the current Axis engine).
However JavaSE 6 is nearing a release and it too will not
support RPC/encoded or xsd_AnyType, nor will it support the current
Document/Literal produced by CF 7 which does not properly handle
arrays for cfproperty elements. This may become a major problem for
my application as all the Java environments are upgraded.
Therefore is this issue being addressed in the upcoming CF 8
Will CF 8 be upgraded to Axis2 and properly support
Document/Literal arrays for cfproperty elements?
When might we expect a release of CF 8?
Is it possible for CF 7 to use Axis2?
CF has been a great product but I do need to assess some
options if CF can not handle Document/Literal arrays for cfproperty
elements within the near future.
