What does the caller of the service see - an exception?

Yes if the invoke method returns AXIS_FAIL Axis abandons the SOAP request.
But the onFault method of same handler’s and previously invoked handler’s
are called in reverse order.

Subject: Can a handler determine if a SOAP request should be abandoned?


Is it possible to instruct Axis to abort processing on a SOAP request from
within a handler? For instance, if a handler is used to authenticate a
request, there should be some way to abort the whole thing and return to
status quo if the authentication attempt fails. A handler comes with a
"onFault" method, but I don't know if this will simply report an error to
the Axis engine or make it stop the SOAP message processing altogether.
