The behavior and functioning of message handlers is same as Servlet filters. No one invokes the filter the container takes of it. we only need to specify this in the service-ref element in the web.xml.
Servlet filter chaining and Message handler chaining is pretty much same.

Thanks for the input. If handlers are to reside on the server, do the handlers get added to the webservice.xml?
Thanks in advance.

RMH chapter 14 is all about Handlers.I suggest you to go through it.
Refer page 702 in RMH for use of handlers in webservices.xml
Refer page 685 in RMH for use of handlers in web.xml
