Subject Re: [Axis2] Phase Handlers
Date Tue, 09 Nov 2004 06:55:36 GMT
hi  all (Srinath);

If before and after implies phase , how can we order handlers inside a phase

and I think phase property of a handler is no longer an optional field ( ?)
then the user specify a phase in the phase field and he can also order the
phases using server.xml

so what it really mean by after and before SHOULD mean phases ?

for me this is bit confusion :(
