Hi Guys, The situation is: In a Web Service, I have few GenericHandlers configured as server(Role) in webservices.xml(for IBM Runtime) & server-config.wsdd(Axis Runtime). Say the handlers are A, B & C. Now, when there is a inbound call A,B & C are getting invoked as expected. I am basically lookin for a way to know (programmatically) the # of handler configured for this web service i.e., 3 in this case and few other handler specific details. I was investigating getting hold hold of HandlerChain by following way HandlerRegistry hndlReg = service.getHandlerRegistry(); List hChain = hndlReg.getHandlerChain(new QName("http://test.com","")); , but I dont get hChain containing information about A,B or C. Ya, here I can add Handlers programmetically which gets invoked also. But no information of already configured handlers in configuration files. Is there any way(programmetically) to get the details about already configured handlers. Appreciating your help.
