Changing component to cxf.

> Changing component to cxf.

Thank you, Marek. So it is enough to correct this issue in 'cxf' package, and no update for jbossws-cxf one needed? (IOW jbossws-cxf being just 'cxf' stack for JBoss applications?)

Let me know (if jbossws-cxf one would still be needed, I can create one).

Thank you, Jan.

Hi Jan,

Since in Fedora we do not bundle anything with jbossws-cxf (unline upstream binary packages) the correct way to create CVE's related to Apache CXF is to use 'cxf' component, because this is the only package in Fedora that contains the Apache CXF code.
