You can use the beginrequest of the global.asax for getting the request from the client.

You can very well do it with the SOAP Handlers. SOAP Handlers intercept the incoming messages from the Client and out going messages from the server and log them as SOAP Request XML.

For the code snippets please refer to the following links

http://www.java-tips.org/java-ee-tips/java-api-for-xml-web-services/writing-a-handler-in-jax-ws.html

http://java.dzone.com/articles/creating-soap-message-handlers

http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-02-2007/jw-02-handler.html

Explanation of SOAP Handlers.
-------------------------------------

Handlers are interceptors that can be easily plugged into the Java API for XML-Based Web Services (JAX-WS) 2.0 runtime environment to do additional processing of inbound and outbound messages. JAX-WS defines two types of handlers: protocol handlers and logical handlers. Protocol handlers are specific to a protocol such as SOAP. They can access or change any part of the message, including protocol-specific parts such as the message header. Logical handlers are protocol-agnostic. They cannot change any protocol-specific parts of a message. Logical handlers act only on the payload of the message.

Hope this helps. Please reach out with reply in case of any clarification
