Hi everybody,

I am using cxf-3.1.7 with jax-rs and JacksonJsonProvider

My application works normally but when BingPreview tries to crawl my page I get

ERROR 2017-08-10 12:32:51,561 ajp-nio-8009-exec-4: 
 No message body writer has been found for class com.lib.datatype.Config, 
ContentType: */*

BingPreview is a Microsoft bot that generates page preview and apparently can 
ran JavaScript. Here is the user_agent: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 7_0 
like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/537.51.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/7.0 
Mobile/11A465 Safari/9537.53 BingPreview/1.0b

Apparently BingPreview calls my method with Accept: */* instead of 

I can recreate the behavior with curl

curl -iH "application/json" http://... works as expected
curl -i http://... gives the same error

The question is the following: Since the client explicitly specified that accepts 
anything why CXF has a problem with that and throws an exception? It should return 
"application/json" and specify that to the ContentType not throw an exception? 
Right? Wrong? What do you think?
