I have a SOAP message I coding by hand to mimic the response a server should send me if I sent a SOAP message and got a response back (since I can't atm get a response I just added what I thought I would get back to a .xml file and read it in)

All seemed to work fine until I wanted to get a value out of the SOAP message...

This is my message dumped into a file:



Using the following:


I managed to get the message and use message.writeTo(System.out) to print out what I actually expected to see:



So there I thought I had solved the conversion of a) file input to soap message and what follows, b) string conversion to soap message...

Alas, it was not to be... The next thing I wanted to do was to try and retrieve the success_or_failure value and use it for something, to do that I should need the SOAPBody so away I went again, only to be granted sight of the following exception: com.sun.xml.messaging.saaj.SOAPExceptionImpl: Unable to create envelope from given source:

Since the message printed okay using message.writeTo(System.out) I was somewhat mullified...



Any ideas greatly appreciated!

I have the suspicion that writeTo() only outputs the stream while getSOAPBody() actually initiates the stream parse. Your best bet is to start with a simple working example (like the one in this topic - it works with the Apache SAAJ) and convert it to using a FileInputStream. If that works replace the SOAP message in the file with your SOAP message. If that fails to parse, gut the contents of the envelope - once it starts to work build the envelope contents up again until it doesn't work. In other words, if you can get a simple SOAP message to work with a FileInputStream then there must be something peculiar in your SOAP message.
