Apache CXF 2.0 Documentation > Index > DataBindings > Aegis Databinding

To configure your Server or Client to use the Aegis databinding, you'll need to configure your ServerFactoryBean and ClientFactoryBeans to use the aegis databinding.

import org.apache.cxf.aegis.databinding.AegisDatabinding;
import org.apache.cxf.frontend.ServerFactoryBean;

ServerFactoryBean sf = new ServerFactoryBean();
sf.getServiceFactory().setDataBinding(new AegisDatabinding());

If you need to ensure that your service is backward compatabile with XFire, you'll want to add one other line:

import org.apache.cxf.aegis.databinding.AegisServiceConfiguration;

sf.getServiceFactory().getServiceConfigurations().add(0, new AegisServiceConfiguration());

This will the change the namespaces that CXF generates by default so that they are the same as XFire would generate.

Similarly, you'll need to set up the client side:

import org.apache.cxf.aegis.databinding.AegisDatabinding;
import org.apache.cxf.frontend.ClientProxyFactoryBean;

ClientProxyFactoryBean factory = new ClientProxyFactoryBean();
factory.getServiceFactory().setDataBinding(new AegisDatabinding());
MyService client = (MyService) factory.create();
