"CXF Endpoint not autowiring spring beans"

CXF endpoint is not properly integrated with spring. I am using JBoss AS 7.1.1 to deploy my cxf webservice integrated with spring. The log messages shows that both CXF and spring creates two different instances of the endpoint bean, and only the spring-created bean is autowired. 

The CXF created instance does not have the dependencies set and it is the one who listens to the client requests, and throws null pointers.

Here is the code..

Service Interface..

package test.cxf.service;

import javax.jws.WebMethod;
import javax.jws.WebParam;
import javax.jws.WebService;

@WebService(name = "EchoService", targetNamespace = " http://service.cxf.test/ http://service.cxf.test/")
public interface EchoService {

    @WebMethod(operationName = "echo", action = "urn:Echo")
    String echo(@WebParam(name = "message") String message);


Service implementation (Endpoint)

package test.cxf.service;

import javax.jws.WebMethod;
import javax.jws.WebParam;
import javax.jws.WebResult;
import javax.jws.WebService;

import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Value;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Service;

@WebService(endpointInterface = "test.cxf.service.EchoService", serviceName = "EchoService")
public class EchoServiceImpl implements EchoService {

    private SystemInfoBean sysInfoBean;

    public EchoServiceImpl() {
        System.out.println(">>>>>>>>> " + this.getClass().getName() + "-constructed.");

    @Value("Fooooooooooooo Baaaaaaaaaar")
    public void setTestInjection(String value) {
        System.out.println(">>>>>>>> Test Injection value = " + value);

    public @WebResult(name="result") String echo(@WebParam(name="message") String message) {
        System.out.println(">>>>>>>> Inside " + this.getClass().getClass().getName() + "-echo - message = " + message);
        System.out.println(" Echoing " + message);


        return message;


SystemInfoBean - A dependent bean

package test.cxf.service;

import java.lang.management.ManagementFactory;
import java.lang.management.OperatingSystemMXBean;

import org.springframework.stereotype.Component;

public class SystemInfoBean {

    public SystemInfoBean() {
        // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub

    public void printOSInfo() {
        OperatingSystemMXBean osXBean = ManagementFactory.getOperatingSystemMXBean();
        System.out.println("============ Operating System Information=========");
        System.out.println("Operating System: " + osXBean.getName());
        System.out.println("Version: " + osXBean.getVersion());
        System.out.println("Architecture: " + osXBean.getArch());
        System.out.println("Available Processors: " + osXBean.getAvailableProcessors());


Spring configuration (beans.xml)


I am excluding the JBoss CXF modules or implementation jars in the jboss-deployment-structure.xml

Thanks for any help in advance.
