I was wondering if there exists a global handler chain for a client side handler? I was able to implement a global server-side handler by placing my handler in the standard-jaxws-endpoint-config.xml and I was curious if there was something similar I could do for clients hosted on a jboss server. If this is not possible what would be the easiest way to configure a client side handler for a simple web service? Thanks in advance.
Take a look at the JAX-WS spec regarding programmatically setting handlers on client side.
Besides that, there's standand-jaxws-client-config-xml that can be used (as well as any custom configuration file similar to that) to configure handlers on client side.
