Deploying handler chains using jaxrpc-ri.xml and wsdeploy - possible bug?
I'm trying to deploy a handler chain in my web service using the wsdeploy tool. I believe that I have the jaxprc-ri.xml correct (pretty straight forward). In the generated Tie class, the HandlerIno class is not loaded in the constructor, so the chain does not work.
When I do basically the same thing using the wscompile tool, the Tie class has the HandlerInfo data and it works fine.
The problem is, using the wscompile tool to generate the class files and then trying to get those into the 'cooked' .war file is a huge pain. You can't just swap the Tie class because the different tools name them differently. It's possible to use the -keep option on wsdelopy to get the java files, make the necessary changes, compile them and then .war it, but that is also a pain because oof the different file structure and class names. You have to change the jax-rpc-ri-runtime.xml file, etc.
I did all that and it worked, but I really don't want to do that everytime I change the service (it's still in development).
Any suggestions? Is this a bug? Is there a patch? I'm using the latest jwsdp 1.6. Should I use an earlier version?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
