Perhaps a little information on how you are implementing the API might be helpful, do you think?

If it's the Jersey project, there's a simple annotation (@Context) that will inject this into a field member.

Why? Even with JAX-RS (Jersey) there is no guarantee that the web service is deployed inside a servlet container. Some of the equivalent functionality may be found elsewhere - but what specifically are you looking for?

It is a JAX-RS (Jersey) project and I used the @Context annotation to get hold of the WebServiceContext object.

When I tried accessing the message context from the web service context object I'm getting null.

Please let me know what I'm missing here.

Below is the beans.xml I'm using

Looks to me that it actually is an Apache CXF JAX-RS project - which as far as I can tell has nothing to do with Jersey.

According to the JSR-311 API (JAX-RS) you should be able to get

javax.ws.rs.core.UriInfo
javax.ws.rs.core.Request
javax.ws.rs.core.HttpHeaders
javax.ws.rs.core.SecurityContext
javax.ws.rs.ext.Providers

from javax.ws.rs.core.Context

javax.xml.ws.WebServiceContext and javax.xml.ws.handler.MessageContext are JAX-WS objects that have no meaning in the JAX-RS context.

CFX has nothing to do with Jersey with one exception: almost everything. The differences should be minuscule.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
