“Feature that allows clients to failover from the initial target endpoint to another, compatible endpoint for the target service”.
I thought of exploring this a bit, and googled. Couldn’t find much in CXF docs. But, found an article here: http://www.javacodegeeks.com/2011/06/apache-cxf-load-balancing-failover.html, that explains how to do Failover/Load Balancing. I’ll have to try this myself and write here. So, for now, if you’re interested to know this in detail, please visit the mentioned link.
