How to get userName token from WSPasswordCallback

Hi,

I am new to axis and using rampart to authenticate the username and cleartext password passed in the SOAPHeader using the WSPasswordCallback.
How can this userName token be made available to the AXIS service? I see that the MessageContext is available in the service which can be used to retrieve the SOAPHeaders. However it will have to be parsed again to retrieve the userName token. Is there a way to get the UserName token used by the callback in the service?
I am interested in learning the best practice to do this.

Here is the services.xml

<service name="SomeWebService"
targetNamespace="http://com.mycom/SomeWebService/service/"> >
<description>Generic Service</description>
<parameter name="ServiceClass" locked="false">com.mycom.service.SomeWebService</parameter>
<operation name="callService">
<messageReceiver class="org.apache.axis2.rpc.receivers.RPCMessageReceiver"/>
</operation>

<module ref="rampart" />

<parameter name="InflowSecurity">
<action>
<items>UsernameToken</items>

<passwordCallbackClass>
com.mycom.service.PWHandlerServer
</passwordCallbackClass>
</action>
</parameter>

</service>


Any help would be appreciated.

Best Regards,
