I don't know why most of Iranian IT professionals insists to solve their problems with the most abnormal way that ever exists ;)
If you are making your webservice secure, there is a perfect technology called WSIT for JAX-WS, and you can send any kind of token, secure or not secure, encrypted, signed or not signed, embedded with your webservice.

If WSIT is not the solution, please explain the problem and the reason you're gonna do that.

I forgot to let you know that it is possible to have access to http  request and response using webservice context. Following exmaple show you how to access the client IP address.

package yourpackage;

import javax.annotation.Resource;
import javax.jws.WebMethod;
import javax.jws.WebService;
import javax.ejb.Stateless;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.xml.ws.WebServiceContext;
import javax.xml.ws.handler.MessageContext;

public class YourWebService {

private WebServiceContext wsContext;

* Web service operation
@WebMethod(operationName = "retrieveClientIPAddress")
public String retrieveClientIPAddress() {
HttpServletRequest req = (HttpServletRequest) wsContext.getMessageContext().get(MessageContext.SERVLET_REQUEST);
return req.getRemoteAddr();

see https://jax-ws.dev.java.net/nonav/2.1.1/docs/api/javax/xml/ws/handler/MessageContext.html
to know other webservice context features.

you can use "javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse" class to setHeader and add hedear Data to http  Header in your servlet and use it in your WS.

but I use DII(Dynamic Invocation Interface) method to call web-service, and want to add headers to HTTP request and use them in web Filters not in web-service or SOAPHandler.
