The code snippet below is my attempt at creating a soap request. I can see the parts of my envelope, and even add content to the body with out compilation error. However, when I try to print the request at the end of the snippet all I get is null. What is the appropriate way to view a soap request like this? why do you suppose that it is coming as null?

(for the purpose of this topic, I created a simple java application and imported the required resources, I am not actually making a request of any web service as of yet)

Here is a method that creates a string representation of an instance of SOAPMessage, along with any MIME attachments to the SOAP message:

I managed to get my soap functions working the original way.

but what is the soap Mime header/body.

is it just where you include the header/body as an attachment? in which case you could have prepared it earlier?
I agree. Here's the link:
