SOAPMessage as String

public String getMessage(){
SOAPMessage message = messageFactory.createMessage();(line1)
............................some more code.....

//Save the message
message.saveChanges();(line 2)

message.writeTo(System.out);(line 3)

return String;}(line 4)

It prints the soap message to the console from line 3. I want the whole soap message as String as my function should return a String on line 4 which should be the whole soap message.

Have you tried to write to, for instance, a ByteArrayOutputStream instead of to System.out?
That way you will be able to retrieve the textual representation of the SOAP message.
Best wishes!
