I want to log raw soap post requests if there are any errors , I am using JAX-WS. Any help will be appreciated.

Is there an easy way (aka: not using a proxy) to get access to the raw request/response XML for a webservice published with JAX-WS reference implementation (the one included in JDK 1.5 and better) only when exception occurs in response? I want to log raw SOAP reuest so that I can test it thorugh any webservice client at a later stage

You could implement a Filter that writes the request out to file as it is being read.

This could be accomplished by wrapping the HttpServletRequest that is passed on with an an implementation that returns an InputStream that is actually a TeeInputStream that writes to a FileOutputStream (or any other desired destination).

If you can detect an exception based on the http response code, then you could write the body of the request to a ByteArrayOutputStream (essentially to memory) and only log/write that to file if the actual http reponse code indicates an error.
