Adding JAXB object to Soap Header

I have created a JAX-WS client from a business partner's WSDL. I now have many JAXB objects for everything in the WSDL/XSD.
They have provided a data structure for me to fill in and add to the SOAP header which is used for message routing and authentication. After doing some reading I think the proper solution is for me to create a SOAPHandler that intercepts every request and adds the SOAPHeader. Below is a snippet of what my handleMessage method looks like:

public boolean handleMessage(SOAPMessageContext msgCtx) {

SOAPEnvelope soapEnvelope;
SOAPHeader soapHeader;
PartnerHeader partnerHeader; // JAXB object

boolean isOutboundMessage = ((Boolean) msgCtx.get(

if (isOutboundMessage) {

try {

soapEnvelope = msgCtx.getMessage().getSOAPPart().getEnvelope();

soapHeader = envelope.getHeader();

partnerHeader = new PartnerHeader(); // JAXB object

// fill in partnerHeader JAXB object

// add partnerHeader to soapHeader

} catch .... {





Can someone please show me how to add the filled-in JAXB object into the SOAPHeader?
