I am new to Java Web Servies and preparing for JWS Cert 1.5 which covers JAX-WS (instead of JAX-RPC)

I am reading from RMH book, and there is a chapter in JAX-RPC Section for Handlers.

PLEASE let me know if reading this chapter (Handlers) would be useful while preparing for JAX-WS.
Does JAX-WS uses the same interception technique as JAX-RPC.

JAX-WS handlers are different from JAX-RPC handlers, although the concept of course is the same. See for some (very brief) info on how to use them.

Thanks a lot for reply.
I am aware of concept of interceptors, I learned it while learning EJB 3.0.

Thanks for the link also. It's helpful.

I agree. Here's the link:
