Subject Re: multiple soap Headers in axis2/axiom
Date Thu, 30 Sep 2010 07:37:01 GMT
A SOAP message can have at most one soap:Header element, but that
element can have any number of children. The getHeaders method in Axis
returns the children of soap:Header, while in Axis2, SOAPHeader
represents the soap:Header element itself. To add individual headers
(also called SOAPHeaderBlocks in Axiom), use the methods defined by
the SOAPHeader interface.

that in axis2/java/AXIOM, this is NOT possible. It seems like always assume there is only
one soapHeader, so you can only do something like this:
