    SOAP Header Action mustUnderstand Exception

    canastasiou Newbie

      We are trying to create a web service that will participate in 2PC. We have an annoying exception concerning Action tag in the Header of the SOAP message.

       

      SOAP message sent:

       

      <s:Envelope xmlns:a="http://www.w3.org/2005/05/addressing" xmlns:s="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope">
       <s:Header>
        <a:Action s:mustUnderstand="1">createBankAccountTransfer</a:Action> 
        <a:MessageID>urn:uuid:123456aa4-c9f7-44a1-b761-49f0742s33e6</a:MessageID> 
       <a:ReplyTo>
        <a:Address>http://www.w3.org/2005/08/addressing/anonymous</a:Address> 
        </a:ReplyTo>
        </s:Header>
       <s:Body xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
       <createBankAccountTransfer xmlns="http://ejb.company.com.cy/">
        <username xmlns="">username</username> 
        <password xmlns="">password</password> 
        <requestXML xmlns=""></requestXML> 
        </createBankAccountTransfer>
        </s:Body>
        </s:Envelope>
      

       

      Exception thrown from JBoss:

      Setting "mustUnderstand" to 0 solves the issue, but we do not have access to the client code, so we must solve it from our side. I have been searching for a solution for days, but noone gives a clear solution, or at least the use of <Action> and how to process it.
