Subject [jira] Created: (WSS-234) Comment as first element in document causes NPE

Comment as first element in document causes NPE

                 Key: WSS-234
             Project: WSS4J
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: WSS4J Core
    Affects Versions: 1.5.8
            Reporter: Remco Schaar
            Assignee: Ruchith Udayanga Fernando
            Priority: Minor

When a document contains a comment as its first child element, wss4j will not find the SOAP
body. This causes a NullPointerException during signature validation.

For example
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
with a valid document works, while
    <?xml version="1.0?>
    <!-- comment about document -->
will break.

It appears this is caused by code in in findBodyElement
where getFirstChild from the document is used. This will not be the expected document root,
but a comment node.

Proposed patch:
