I don't have a full example of jaxrpc using handlers (though there are
handler samples in the JAX-WS 2.0 bundles), but the AttachmentsSample
example in the jwsdp uses a handler on the client side. The latest jwsdp
can be found here:

To add a handler to your service, you can add the <handlerChains>
element to your config-server.xml following the example in
AttachmentsSample/etc/config-client.xml. Just change <chain
runAt="client"> to <chain runAt="server"> and, of course, specify the
class name of the handler you're using.

If you're trying to specify the handler a different way, let me know
what you're seeing when you build the service. From the above, it sounds
like you're saying that the handler is not being invoked.
