Processing Headers

Hi all,
If I set Header entries in my consumer, how can I read these entries in my java class exposed as a RPC - LITERAL web service.
Actually, sounds like I need to reconstruct the envelope, but I don't know how to do that.
I use Apache soap 2.3, but if you have some clues with Axis, I'm interested too.

Is it impossible to read information written in a SOAP header when we are using RPC communication model ??
I'm able to change the header on the client side using
But I can't figure out how to read it from the server side.
Any clue ?
