Hi again,

Sorry for the delay. Just a couple comments below:

Yep, it's going to be performance hit, but there's no way to avoid the
bug that's in the xml writing code. Offhand, I might try a method in my
handler that takes a Node (w3c node, which is a superclass of
SOAPElement) and does something like this:

     if (node.getNodeType() == Node.TEXT_NODE) {
         //handle the text in the node
     NodeList list = node.getChildNodes();
     for (int i=0; i<list.getLength(); i++) {
         callSameMethod(list.item(i)); // recursive call

Or you could get the Source from the SOAPMessage and do a transform in
one step, but as long as the DOM tree has already been created in the
SOAPMessage I'd use it. As always, there may be faster ways and that's
just my suggestion this morning...

The fastest way you can get it is that we're going to have binary
releases on soon. Unfortunately, I can't define "soon" :). They
won't be fully tested and supported releases like in the web services
pack, but will have bug fixes in them and you can give them a try.
