In my application, I have extended the com.sun.xml.ws.transport.http.client.HttpTransportPipe (that Jax WS uses by default) to provide a custom TransportPipe which uses apache HttpClient internally as transport. i.e. to process send the WS request and receive the WS response. I have also written an extension to the com.sun.xml.ws.api.pipe.TransportTubeFactory to create and provide my custom TransportPipe. This is being loaded by java's ServiceLoader mechanism, i.e. providing a META-INF/services/fullyqualifiedclassname file which contains the implementation I want to use. 7 out of 10 times, my custom TransportTubeFactory is loaded but the other times, the default TransportTubeFactory is being used. Is there any way to force loading of my custom transport, all the time.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
