Subject Re: [Axis2] valid SOAP operations
Date Fri, 30 May 2008 04:08:33 GMT
It is the last handler listed in the Dispatch phase of the InFlow phase order.

Tell me its location relative to dispatch phase, and don't tell me its before the dispatch
phase ;)

 Where/how do I get the AxisService object in the code sample below?
 The code will be in the invoke method of my handler class that is invoked in the InFlow phase.

AxisService service; // your axis service
String action = messageContext.getSoapAction();

AxisOperation op = service.getOperationBySOAPAction(action);

if (op == null) {
   op = service.getOperationByAction(action);

Please see [1] for more details.

  I think I've made the question more complicated than it needed to be.
All I really need to know is whether the valid SOAP operations for a service are available
in an Axis2 class somewhere?
Something like getValidSOAPOpeations() that returns a list would be ideal.  Otherwise I'll
need to hard-code constants for each operation in the WSDL and compare the results of  getSOAPAction
to each one.

does this. After all this is what your trying to do (Dispatch to an operation using some custom
information).  You can have a look at the inbuilt dispatchers tp get an idea. Its pretty simple
to write a new one.

I can take the appropriate action.
I've found that many clients trying to consume the service don't know much about web services
so they may send a request with no SOAPAction header or an invalid one.
   For example, my valid operations may be echo and calculate.  Can these 2 operations be
determined programatically somehow?  I'd like to get the valid operations this way and compare
what I got from the getSOAPAction() method to see if I got a valid operation.  Basically,
I'm trying to avoid hard-coding the operations in my Java code.

Can you state your requirement more clearly, that should help us provide you with a clear
answer too. I couldn't   understand what you are intending to do

to ensure a valid operation was requested.
    I'm open to a better way of doing this.
