Interface SOAPHeaderElement

All Superinterfaces:
Element, Node, SOAPElement

public interface SOAPHeaderElement
extends SOAPElement

An object representing the contents in the SOAP header part of the SOAP envelope. The immediate children of a SOAPHeader object can be represented only as SOAPHeaderElement objects.

A SOAPHeaderElement object can have other SOAPElement objects as its children.

Method Detail

setActor

void setActor(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

If this SOAPHeaderElement supports SOAP 1.2 then this call is equivalent to setRole(String)

Parameters:
actorURI - a String giving the URI of the actor to set
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if there is a problem in setting the actor.
See Also:
getActor()

setRole

void setRole(String uri)
             throws SOAPException
Sets the Role associated with this SOAPHeaderElement object to the specified Role.

Parameters:
uri - - the URI of the Role
Throws:
SOAPException - if there is an error in setting the role
UnsupportedOperationException - if this message does not support the SOAP 1.2 concept of Fault Role.
Since:
SAAJ 1.3

getActor

String getActor()
Returns the uri of the actor attribute of this SOAPHeaderElement.

If this SOAPHeaderElement supports SOAP 1.2 then this call is equivalent to getRole()

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

getRole

String getRole()
Returns the value of the Role attribute of this SOAPHeaderElement.

Returns:
a String giving the URI of the Role
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if this message does not support the SOAP 1.2 concept of Fault Role.
Since:
SAAJ 1.3

setMustUnderstand

void setMustUnderstand(boolean mustUnderstand)
Sets the mustUnderstand attribute for this SOAPHeaderElement object to be either true or false.

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 to true; false to set it to false
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if there is a problem in setting the mustUnderstand attribute
See Also:
getMustUnderstand(), setRelay(boolean)

getMustUnderstand

boolean getMustUnderstand()
Returns the boolean value of the mustUnderstand attribute for this SOAPHeaderElement.

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

setRelay

void setRelay(boolean relay)
              throws SOAPException
Sets the relay attribute for this SOAPHeaderElement to be either true or false.

The SOAP relay attribute is set to true to indicate that the SOAP header block must be relayed by any node that is targeted by the header block but not actually process it. This attribute is ignored on header blocks whose mustUnderstand attribute is set to true or that are targeted at the ultimate reciever (which is the default). The default value of this attribute is false.

Parameters:
relay - the new value of the relay attribute
Throws:
SOAPException - if there is a problem in setting the relay attribute.
UnsupportedOperationException - if this message does not support the SOAP 1.2 concept of Relay attribute.
Since:
SAAJ 1.3
See Also:
setMustUnderstand(boolean), getRelay()

getRelay

boolean getRelay()
Returns the boolean value of the relay attribute for this SOAPHeaderElement

Returns:
true if the relay attribute is turned on; false otherwise
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if this message does not support the SOAP 1.2 concept of Relay attribute.
Since:
SAAJ 1.3
See Also:
getMustUnderstand(), setRelay(boolean)
