SOAP is a mean of communication among different kinds of technologies and platforms also it has following (business/technical reasons) advantages -
~Using SOAP over HTTP allows for easier communication through proxies and firewalls than previous remote execution technology.
~SOAP is versatile enough to allow for the use of different transport protocols. The standard stacks use HTTP as a transport protocol but other protocols are also usable (e.g. SMTP).
~SOAP is platform independent.
~SOAP is language independent.
~SOAP is simple and extensible.

I am using Springs 3. I have a method in an Endpoint class which handles the web service request. The method is annotated with @Action to make it asynchronous. The SOAP request header contains some information (like UUID, Reply Address, etc). I need to be able to access these header information from inside this method.

The Spring WS MessageContext as well as the Apache axis MessageContext seems to be empty, so I am not able to use it inside the method to derive the SOAP header.
