How To Maintain Cookies Using CXF

How To Maintain Cookies Using CXF explains about Maintaining Cookies Using CXF

I am showing here, How to do maintain Cookies in CXF framework, this is applicable for both SOAP & RESTFul services

Message message = PhaseInterceptorChain.getCurrentMessage();
HttpServletRequest request = (HttpServletRequest)message.get(AbstractHTTPDestination.HTTP_REQUEST);
Cookie[] cookies = request.getCookies();

On this code, we are getting HttpServletRequest and from that we are getting cookies object in CXF

You can see the below example, on which we are storing a value into cookies from client side and retrieving the same, using CXF Framework

Note

This tutorial is also applicable for JAX-WS Web services because PhaseInterceptorChain.getCurrentMessage() applicable for both JAX-WS and JAX-RS based services

You can change CXF Web Service Tutorial according to the below tutorial, if you are using JAX-WS based service

You can also rely on HttpConduit and you will get cookies from HttpConduit, then append before the next call

Enable Cookies Using CXF

I am going to re-use CXF Restful Tutorial

We are making changes ChangeStudentDetailsImpl class, just adding

PhaseInterceptorChain.getCurrentMessage() and getting HttpServletRequest, so that we can access Cookie object in CXF Framework

package com.student;

import javax.servlet.http.Cookie;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.ws.rs.Consumes;
import javax.ws.rs.POST;
import javax.ws.rs.Path;
import javax.ws.rs.Produces;


import org.apache.cxf.message.Message;
import org.apache.cxf.phase.PhaseInterceptorChain;
import org.apache.cxf.transport.http.AbstractHTTPDestination;

// Maintain Cookies Using CXF

@Consumes("application/json")
@Produces("application/json")
public class ChangeStudentDetailsImpl implements ChangeStudentDetails {

 
@POST
  @Path
("/changeName")
 
public Student changeName(Student student) {
   
// Here We are getting cookies from HttpServletRequest
   
Message message = PhaseInterceptorChain.getCurrentMessage();
    HttpServletRequest request =
(HttpServletRequest) message.get(AbstractHTTPDestination.HTTP_REQUEST);
    Cookie
[] cookies = request.getCookies();
   
if (cookies != null) {
     
for (Cookie cookie : cookies) {
       
student.setName("HELLO " + cookie.getValue());
     
}
    }
   
return student;
 
}

 
@GET
  @Path
("/getName")
 
public Student getName() {
   
Student student = new Student();
    student.setName
("Rockey");
   
return student;
 
}
}

Run Client

package com.client;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.OutputStream;
import java.net.HttpURLConnection;
import java.net.MalformedURLException;
import java.net.URL;
import java.util.Scanner;

// Cookie Handling Using CXF

public class PostStudentClient {

 
public static void main(String[] args) {
   
try {
     
URL url = new URL("http://localhost:8080/CXFRestfulTutorial/rest/changeName");
      HttpURLConnection conn =
(HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
      conn.setDoOutput
(true);
      conn.setRequestMethod
("POST");
      conn.setRequestProperty
("Content-Type", "application/json");
      conn.setRequestProperty
("Cookie", "name=Tom");

      String input =
"{\"Student\":{\"name\":\"Tom\"}}";

      OutputStream os = conn.getOutputStream
();
      os.write
(input.getBytes());
      os.flush
();

      Scanner scanner;
      String response;
     
if (conn.getResponseCode() != 200) {
       
scanner = new Scanner(conn.getErrorStream());
        response =
"Error From Server \n\n";
     
} else {
       
scanner = new Scanner(conn.getInputStream());
        response =
"Response From Server \n\n";
     
}
     
scanner.useDelimiter("\\Z");
      System.out.println
(response + scanner.next());
      scanner.close
();
      conn.disconnect
();
   
} catch (MalformedURLException e) {
     
e.printStackTrace();
   
} catch (IOException e) {
     
e.printStackTrace();
   
}
  }
}
Output
Response From Server 

{"Student":{"name":"HELLO Tom"}}
