+ absolute path: @HandlerChain(file="file:///path/to/handlers.xml")
I checked the codes, there might be issue with this, I will double check it later.
+ relative path: @HandlerChain(file="handlers.xml")
With this format, it looks to me that it means handlers.xml and ServerInfo.class should be both in the example folder. From the structure in your last comment, they are not. Right ?
