This tutorial is explained in the below Youtube Video.

Lets Begin

Create the maven project as follows-

The classes in package com.javainuse are generated classes from wsdl.
The pom.xml will be as follows-
<project xmlns="" xmlns:xsi=""










Next we define a "contract-first" webservice using WSDL. In the contract-first web service, the "contract" i.e a WSDL definition of operations and endpoints and XML schema of the messages is created first, without actually writing any service code.
Next we define the wsdl file that takes a String as an input and returns another string as output.
The WSDL is defined as follows-
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<wsdl:definitions xmlns:soap=""
	xmlns:tns="" xmlns:xs=""
	xmlns:http="" xmlns:wsdl=""

		<xs:schema targetNamespace="">
			<xs:element name="inputSOATest">
						<xs:element type="xs:string" name="test" />
			<xs:element name="outputSOATest">
						<xs:element type="xs:string" name="result" />

<!--Define input and output parameters -->
	<wsdl:message name="inputSOATest">
		<wsdl:part name="in" element="tns:inputSOATest" />
	<wsdl:message name="outputSOATest">
		<wsdl:part name="out" element="tns:outputSOATest" />

<!--Define port definition -->
	<wsdl:portType name="SOATestEndpoint">
		<wsdl:operation name="SOATest">
			<wsdl:input message="tns:inputSOATest" />
			<wsdl:output message="tns:outputSOATest" />

<!--Bind Soap operation and service -->
	<wsdl:binding name="SOATestBinding" type="tns:SOATestEndpoint">
		<soap:binding transport="" />
		<wsdl:operation name="SOATest">
			<soap:operation soapAction=""
				style="document" />
				<soap:body parts="in" use="literal" />
				<soap:body parts="out" use="literal" />

<!--Define service -->
	<wsdl:service name="SOATestEndpointService">
		<wsdl:port name="SOATestEndpoint" binding="tns:SOATestBinding">
			<soap:address location="http://localhost:8181/cxf/javainuse/learn" />

Next we define a cxfEndpoint and configure a route to expose webservice.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns=""
	xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:camel=""
	xmlns:osgi="" xmlns:cxf=""

	//define a cxfEndpoint for the wsdl
	<cxf:cxfEndpoint id="CXFTest" address="/javainuse/learn"
		endpointName="a:SOATestEndpoint" serviceName="a:SOATestEndpointService"
		wsdlURL="META-INF/wsdl/test.wsdl" serviceClass="com.javainuse.SOATestEndpoint"
		xmlns:a="" />

	<bean id="processor" class="com.javainuse.beans.CamelProcessor" />
	//camel route for processing the input
	<camelContext id="camelId" xmlns="">

		<camel:route id="bookTicket">
			<camel:from uri="cxf:bean:CXFTest" />
			<process ref="processor" />

package com.javainuse.beans;

import java.util.List;
import org.apache.camel.Exchange;
import org.apache.camel.Processor;
import com.javainuse.InputSOATest;
import com.javainuse.OutputSOATest;

public class CamelProcessor implements Processor {

    public void process(Exchange exchange) throws Exception {
        OutputSOATest out = new OutputSOATest();
        //Get input from exchange
        List soaList = exchange.getIn().getBody(List.class);
        InputSOATest inputSOATest = (InputSOATest) soaList.get(0);
        out.setResult("Welcome " + inputSOATest.getTest().toString());
        //set output in exchange


Start JBoss Fuse and type the command-
install mvn:com.javainuse/soapexample/0.0.1-SNAPSHOT
start 251
Use list command to check if the bundle is started correctly

Next go to url localhost:8181/cxf

Click on the wsdl hyperlink.
