>                 Key: AXIS2-1120
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Axis 2.0 (Axis2)
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: core
>    Affects Versions: 1.0
>            Reporter: Thilo Frotscher
>            Priority: Blocker
> With Axis2 1.0 it can easily happen that you engage a module with services without realizing
> This is because even if explicitly engaging a module with a *single* service or a *single*
operation, its handlers will automatically be invoked for *all* services if they belong to
a global phase. There's no warning messages or anything that prevent's you from doing this.
IMHO this bevaviour is very confusing, especially for beginners.
> I think there are two possible solutions to this:
> - disallow engagement with single services or operations for all modules that contain
handlers in global phases
>   (at the very least, display a warning message that the module will actually be invoked
for *all* services)
> - or make sure that handlers in global phases are *available*  to all services, but will
only be invoked for services that they were *explicitly* engaged with
> Either way, the release of Axis2 1.1 is a very good opportunity to change this behaviour.
The later you do this, the more backwards compatibility might have to be sacrificed.
> I am sure that many users will vote for this change once the use of Axis2 in general
and modules in particular is more widespread.
> There was a discussion about this on the mailing list, but somehow it died out:
> Please consider making this change for v1.1
> Thanks!
