I am writing a Java client(using JAX-WS and SAAJ) to consume a WCF web service. Tested the SOAP xml request that is being sent(outbound) and it works as expected on SOAPUI.

I am getting the following error,
Exception in thread "main" MustUnderstand headers:[{}Security] are not understood

Appreciate any help in letting me know how to fix it.

Below is the SOAP input created. Tested the SOAP request in SOAPUI and it works fine.

The handler code is below

Thanks in advance.

Hello Vishnu,

Do you have the code that will create the web service in Java that has the SOAP Header?

Not referring to the client code.


I agree. Here's the link:
