Hi All,

Below is a piece of code which I am executing to get an Element from a
Soap envelope.

String strSecurityNS = "http://docs.oasis-open-arg/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-wssecurity-utility-1.0.xsd";
Element timeStampElement = (Element)reqEnvelope.getElementsByTagNameNS("TimeStamp", strSecurityNS).item(0);

However I get the following error:
at java.lang.Throwable.<init>(
