How to use jwsdp with weblogic 8.1 sp 4

Can someone give me some pointers on how to deplpy a JWSDP developed SOAP service within a weblogic 8.1 sp 4 container.

My SOAP service is developed for document/literal style with no java binding. In other words, I pass SOAPElement directly to my implementation class. This allows me to selectively validate portions of the XML body so that I can do partial processing if possible. I use of Xalan to process the SOAPElement body and ultimately JAXB for the portions I'm going to process fully.

I have the service running beautifully in Tomcat, but my IS Dept will only support WebLogic 8.1 in production. The WebLogic 8.1 SOAPService development tools are not compatible with Xalan processing of the SOAP bodies (see below)


P.S. Info to the unsuspecting - SOAP services developed with WebLogic 8.1 sp 4 (and lower) tools (servicegen, wsdl2service, wspackage) CANNOT use Xalan or Jaxb to process the SOAP message. After hours of work with BEA Support they have confirmed this too. The problem is that the SOAPMessage and SOAPElement passed to implementation class inherits from a proprietary weblogic implementation of SOAPElement which DOES NOT inherit from org.w3c.dom.Node - therefore it cannot be passed into Xalan, Xerces, or JaxB methods.
