Hi,

I'm pretty new to webservices & axis,
so I'm looking for advice/direction or any help at all about

is it possible to create a webservice using axis
that can collect statistics on other webservices such as
how long a server took to respond to a webservice call
the location of the calling webservice
was the 'call' successful, as in response codes ...
etc.. and other related statistics


is this possible
like i said i'm pretty new
and don't know where to begin
is there an app that already does this
has anyone else seen a webservice used in this way ...

thanks
any help would be much appreciated

You could add a server-side handler that logs all information about the web services being called. If it makes those statistics available (e.g., via static fields), then you can build another WS that returns those numbers.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
