Class LogHandler

  extended byorg.apache.axis.handlers.BasicHandler
      extended byorg.apache.axis.handlers.LogHandler
All Implemented Interfaces:

public class LogHandler
extends BasicHandler

A simple Handler which logs the request and response messages to either the console or a specified file (default "axis.log"). To use this, deploy it either in both the request and response flows (global, service, or transport) or in just the response flow. If deployed in both places, you'll also get an elapsed time indication, which can be handy for debugging.

Method Detail


public void init()
Description copied from class: BasicHandler
Stubbed-out methods. Override in your child class to implement any real behavior. Note that there is NOT a stub for invoke(), since we require any Handler derivative to implement that.

Specified by:
init in interface Handler
init in class BasicHandler


public void invoke(MessageContext msgContext)
            throws AxisFault
Description copied from interface: Handler
Invoke is called to do the actual work of the Handler object. If there is a fault during the processing of this method it is invoke's job to catch the exception and undo any partial work that has been completed. Once we leave 'invoke' if a fault is thrown, this classes 'onFault' method will be called. Invoke should rethrow any exceptions it catches, wrapped in an AxisFault.

msgContext - the MessageContext to process with this Handler.
AxisFault - if the handler encounters an error


public void onFault(MessageContext msgContext)
Description copied from interface: Handler
Called when a subsequent handler throws a fault.

Specified by:
onFault in interface Handler
onFault in class BasicHandler
