Using the xws-security handler, there is no way currently to change
that, though there may be in a future release. If you want to change the
message in some way (for instance, the request before it leaves the
client), you can add your own handler to the client that extends
javax.xml.rpc.handler.GenericHandler and implement the handleRequest()
so that it makes your changes and leaves as much or as little of the
message intact as you'd like.
