Java - creating Web Service Request using JDOM - Header issue

I done many integrations using JDOM in Eclipse but for first time I have an issue because my SOAP XML message should contain and `HEADER` element wuth specific elements. This is my whole message:

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:agi="http://agilent.parlayx.sms">
<soapenv:Header>
<cppass>test</cppass>
<cpuname>test</cpuname>
</soapenv:Header>
<soapenv:Body>
<agi:sendBulkSms>
<address>tel:3876123456</address>
</agi:sendBulkSms>
</soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>


I created `BODY` structure using this:

Element top = new Element("sendBulkSms", agi);
Document jDoc = new Document(top);

Element address = new Element("address", agi);
address.setText("tel:3876123456");
top.addContent(address);

This works OK I did it many times before. But is it possible to create and header element of message uisng JDOM or not? Because as far as I know only BODY element can be defined.

Thank you, I will appreciate help (I must do it over JDOM so there are no other alternative)

Yes, you can. The creation of Header is just like the creation of Body, kind of "business as normal".

If your Document is created along this line:

you can add the Header before Body...

After that, you build the Header just like how you build the Body (putting your jDoc into it, I suppose).

ps: How come your address is in no namespace (or is it somehow in some default namespace of agi)? In any case, you know better what you actially get and I am not in a position to take what you posted to the letter literally.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
