This is because of the problem I mentioned earlier.

Try this.
When generating the code with wsdl2java tool use -Ewdc option. This would
generate some dummy classes for Xml beans.

Then generate the Xmlbeans classes with the scomp tool comes with the
Xmlbeans distribution.

Then replace the above dummy classes with the latter generated data bind

even for headers you have to specify the part of the message to be used
<wsdl:operation name="Test">
            <soap:operation soapAction="Test"/>
                <soap:body use="literal" parts="RequestMsg"/>
                <soap:header use="literal" part="HeaderMsg"
                <soap:body use="literal"/>
