extends java.io.Serializable

The javax.xml.rpc.handler.HandlerRegistry provides support for the programmatic configuration of handlers in a HandlerRegistry.

A handler chain is registered per service endpoint, as indicated by the qualified name of a port. The getHandlerChain returns the handler chain (as a java.util.List) for the specified service endpoint. The returned handler chain is configured using the java.util.List interface. Each element in this list is required to be of the Java type javax.xml.rpc.handler.HandlerInfo
