Subject Custom HandlerChainInvoker
Date Thu, 26 Sep 2013 15:43:25 GMT
I currently have an integration requirement which basically imply having 
to perform some additional authorization checks just before invoking any 
JAXWS handler handleMessage method.

For achieving that, I've thought about using a custom 
HandlerChainInvoker overriding 'invokeLogicalHandlers' and 
'invokeProtocolHandlers' methods.
For installing such a custom invoker, I thought about adding a custom 
AbstractPhaseInterceptor running just before the SOAPHandlerInterceptor 
in the PRE_PROTOCOL_FRONTEND phase; the new handler would install my 
invoker in the Exchange, similarly to what is done in 
The problem I have, however, is that ofcourse I need a handle to the 
handler chain (List<Handler>) to build the invoker: the handler chain is 
available from the Endpoint stored in the current exchange, if the 
endpoint is an instance of JaxWsEndpointImpl. Any idea / hint on how to 
get that there easily for other Endpoint types?
Does the whole flow here make sense?
Would it make sense to allow a more direct customization of the handler 
chain invoker?
