Axis Call is putting SOAP Body data in the Header

I have used Apache Axis WSDL2Java to produce my Java wrapper to a working Web Service. I used Axis 1.3 and 1.4 individually, the code is identical except for comments.

When I make a call to the web service, the XML it is sending over is malformed. It is putting the Body into the Header.

This is what I get when I consume the same Web service in Visual Studio 2005 in C# .NET (it works):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
 
      <soap:Header>
            <AuthenticationInfo xmlns="urn:HPD_Help_Desk_POC">
                  <userName>alexandjim</userName>
                  <password>jenny</password>
            </AuthenticationInfo>
      </soap:Header>
 
      <soap:Body>
            <OpCreate xmlns="urn:HPD_Help_Desk_POC">
                  <Assigned_Group>Internal Support</Assigned_Group>
                  <Assigned_Support_Company>My Company</Assigned_Support_Company>
                  <Assigned_Support_Organization>IT Support Organization</Assigned_Support_Organization>
                  <Company>My Company</Company>
                  <Contact_Company>My Company</Contact_Company>
                  <Description>Test Ticket from Web Service</Description>
                  <First_Name>Tommy</First_Name>
                  <Impact>4-Minor/Localized</Impact>
                  <Incident_Number>INC000000000081</Incident_Number>
                  <Last_Name>Tutone</Last_Name>
                  <Phone_Number>415-867-5309</Phone_Number>
                  <Priority>Low</Priority>
                  <Priority_Weight>0</Priority_Weight>
                  <Service_Type>Request</Service_Type>
                  <Status>New</Status>
                  <Submitter>Tommy Tutone</Submitter>
                  <Urgency>4-Low</Urgency>
                  <Person_ID>1982</Person_ID>
            </OpCreate>
      </soap:Body>
 
</soap:Envelope>

This is what I am getting from JBuilder 2007 using the Axis code (it doesn't work):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
 
      <soapenv:Header>
            <AuthenticationInfo>
                  <userName>alexandjim</userName>
                  <password>jenny</password>
            </AuthenticationInfo>
 
            <ns1:OpCreate xmlns:ns1="urn:HPD_Help_Desk_POC">
                  <ns1:Assigned_Group>Internal Support</ns1:Assigned_Group>
                  <ns1:Assigned_Support_Company>My Company</ns1:Assigned_Support_Company>
                  <ns1:Assigned_Support_Organization>IT Support Organization</ns1:Assigned_Support_Organization>
                  <ns1:Company>My Company</ns1:Company>
                  <ns1:Contact_Company>My Company</ns1:Contact_Company>
                  <ns1:Description>Test Ticket from Web Service</ns1:Description>
                  <ns1:First_Name>Tommy</ns1:First_Name>
                  <ns1:Impact>4-Minor/Localized</ns1:Impact>
                  <ns1:Incident_Number>INC000000000081</ns1:Incident_Number>
                  <ns1:Last_Name>Tutone</ns1:Last_Name>
                  <ns1:Phone_Number>415-867-5309</ns1:Phone_Number>
                  <ns1:Priority>Low</ns1:Priority>
                  <ns1:Priority_Weight>0</ns1:Priority_Weight>
                  <ns1:Service_Type>Quick Case</ns1:Service_Type>
                  <ns1:Status>New</ns1:Status>
                  <ns1:Submitter>Tommy Tutone</ns1:Submitter>
                  <ns1:Urgency>4-Low</ns1:Urgency>
                  <ns1:Person_ID>1982</ns1:Person_ID>
            </ns1:OpCreate>
      </soapenv:Header>
 
      <soapenv:Body>
            <OpCreate xmlns=""/>
      </soapenv:Body>
 
</soapenv:Envelope>

Has anyone had this kind of issue before? I am at a complete loss about what to do.

I have a fix for this issue. Hopefully they will leave it in the system without any other comments, in case someone else has the same problem.

In the SoapBindingStub that was generated by WSDL2Java, there should be a line, or in this case it is broken into two lines, that looks something like this:

param = new org.apache.axis.description.ParameterDesc(new javax.xml.namespace.QName("urn:MyWebService", "OpGet"), org.apache.axis.description.ParameterDesc.IN, new javax.xml.namespace.QName("urn:MyWebService", "GetInputMap"), com.mycompany.helloworld.mywebservice.GetInputMap.class, true, false);

oper.addParameter(param);

The last two booleans in the ParameterDesc are for inHeader and outHeader. They should both be set to false. That fixed it.
