Method Detail

setActor

public void setActor(java.lang.String actorURI)
Sets the actor associated with this SOAPHeaderElement object to the specified actor. The default value of an actor is: SOAPConstants.URI_SOAP_ACTOR_NEXT

Parameters:
actorURI - a String giving the URI of the actor to set
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if there is a problem in setting the actor.

getActor()

getActor

public java.lang.String getActor()
Returns the uri of the actor associated with this SOAPHeaderElement object.

Returns:
a String giving the URI of the actor
See Also:
setActor(java.lang.String)

setMustUnderstand

public void setMustUnderstand(boolean mustUnderstand)
Sets the mustUnderstand attribute for this SOAPHeaderElement object to be on or off.

If the mustUnderstand attribute is on, the actor who receives the SOAPHeaderElement must process it correctly. This ensures, for example, that if the SOAPHeaderElement object modifies the message, that the message is being modified correctly.

Parameters:
mustUnderstand - true to set the mustUnderstand attribute on; false to turn if off
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if there is a problem in setting the actor.
See Also:
getMustUnderstand()

getMustUnderstand

public boolean getMustUnderstand()
Returns whether the mustUnderstand attribute for this SOAPHeaderElement object is turned on.

Returns:
true if the mustUnderstand attribute of this SOAPHeaderElement object is turned on; false otherwise
