You'd need to write a SOAP extension to JMeter, though that wouldn't be hard, and 
I'd be willing to do it for you if you help me out.  I could write the skeleton of what 
you need, and you fill in the SOAP stuff.  It's about time JMeter fully supported 
SOAP anyway.

The biggest difference between JMeter and HttpUnit is that you "program" JMeter via 
the GUI, rather than writing Java code.  JMeter has a proxy server that supports 
HTTP, recording of browser activity.  This proxy could easily be the basis for a new 
proxy that allowed recording of SOAP activity.  Is this what you meant by "sniff"?

JMeter also has visualizers to represent the test data.  Whether or not they meet 
your needs is hard to say since you didn't specify, but I guess the answer is, yes, 
you can visualize the traffic :-)
