Actually what you have seems to be very recent , but then i don't
understand the stack trace :

Caused by: Unexpected characters before XML

here is what i see in line 121 of

 120 }
 121 int len = index;

 123 String decl = xmlDeclStr.toString();

So i need to understand what is your exact setup (classpaths etc.) is
some old SAAJ Impl jar sneaking in from somewhere.

Also note that this error that you are seeing will occur if the parser
detects that there is an XML Declaration <?xml...../> but there are some
extra characters before the <?xml....> decalaration. So what is your
client side setup, are you using Sun's runtime or is the client side
runtime from a different vendor. Can you caputre the SOAPMessage being
recieved by the Service and send it across. Is the message being sent
using a Charset Encoding other than UTF8 or UTF16 ?.
