Asynchronous Web Service Using CXF

Asynchronous Web Service Using CXF explains about Creating / Developing JAX-WS Asynchronous Web service with the help of Apache CXF, Spring, Eclipse and deployed in Tomcat

In this example we are showing implementing an Asynchronous SOAP services using CXF Java first approach.

The asynchronous model allows the client thread to continue after making a two-way invocation without being blocked while awaiting a response from the server. Once the response is available, it is delivered to the client application asynchronously

For this there are two alternative approaches:

1) Callback: client application implements the interface to accept notification of the response availability
2) Polling: client application periodically polls a instance to check if the response is available

CXF Asynchronous Web Service Tutorial

I am creating a sample web service project that pass Student object and return with some changes on that object. The service is using simple POJO (Plain Old Java Object) bean.

Firstly create a Dynamic Web Project (File->New->Dynamic Web Project) named "CXFTutorial" according to following screenshot

Create CXF Project CXF Asynchronous Tutorial

Create a Student Object

package com.student;

public class Student {
private String name;
public String getName() {
return name;
public void setName(String name) { = name;
