Please answer my questions even they are stupid ones as i am trying to learn web services.

This is what i read about Handlers in JAX-RPC

There are two kinds of handlers: client and server.

Client handlers can intercept messages sent from a client application, the "request", and the corresponding

message returned by the service, the "response".


Server handlers can intercept messages sent to a Web service, the "request", and the corresponding message

returned by the service, the "response".


I can't understand the difference between these two from above definations .


Please tell me what is a client and a server side Handlers?

The difference is in where the code runs - as part of the client or as part of the server.

If you're just starting to learn WS, I'd suggest to learn JAX-WS, not JAX-RPC (which is obsolete).

Googling for "difference jax-rpc jax-ws" will get you useful results.
