Subject Re: Param Headers with mustUnderstand="true"
Date Fri, 24 Feb 2012 20:58:29 GMT

Just a quick follow up...

I chatted with Guillaume a bit on IRC this morning about this.   I don't see a 
major issue with moving it.   The only potential problem I see is that this 
moves the interceptor to running after the JAX-WS SOAPHandlers which could 
potentially cause TCK issues with calls to the getMustUndertand methods 
occurring out of order.    Guillaume will run the TCK with this change and 
report back the results early next week.
