Subject Axis2 - How to set a header attribute from client that can be get in a Handler
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2008 07:56:58 GMT

My Web Service is deployed in Apache Tomcat + Axis2.war and I am calling it using RPCServiceClient.
I am tying to set a String attribute to SOAP header from RPC Client. But the attribute is
not found in the SOAPEnvelope in the handler put by me on the server.

My client code is:
        RPCServiceClient serviceClient = new RPCServiceClient();
        Options options = serviceClient.getOptions();
        EndpointReference targetEPR = new EndpointReference("http://localhost:8080/axis2/services/SimpleService");
        serviceClient.addStringHeader(new QName("", "attr1"), "Attr1_Value");
        QName opGetName = new QName("", "getName");
        Object[] opGetNameArgs = new Object[] {"1"};
        Class[] returnTypes = new Class[] { String.class };
        Object[] response = serviceClient.invokeBlocking(opGetName, opGetNameArgs, returnTypes);
        String result = (String) response[0];

The result obtained is fine but I am not able to get the "attr1" on the server side.

The handler's invoke method on server side is as follows:
    public InvocationResponse invoke(MessageContext mc) throws AxisFault {
        org.apache.axiom.soap.SOAPEnvelope env =  mc.getEnvelope();
        SOAPHeader header = env.getHeader();
        Iterator iter = header.getAllAttributes();
        while(iter.hasNext()) {
        InvocationResponse ir = InvocationResponse.CONTINUE;
        return ir;

The iterator on server side contains no objects.

Please provide your valuable suggestions and feedback.

Thanks and regards,
