      Description

      This error is the result of improper handing of namespaces and their prefixes. Specifically, when using the default namespace attribute "xmlns". For example:

      <soap:Envelope>
      <soap:Body>
      <foo xmlns="bar" />
      </soap:Body>
      </soap:Envelope>

      The full stack trace is as follows:

      javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: org.w3c.dom.DOMException: NAMESPACE_ERR: An attempt is made to create or change an object in a way which is incorrect with regard to namespaces.

      Normally this error is associated with a buggy version of Xalan-J. In this case, however, it appears to be an error in org.springframework.ws.soap.saaj.support.SaajXmlReader.

      I have isolated the problem and will supply a patch.

        Attached patch.

        No unit test present because build uses SAAJ 1.3 and issue only occurs on SAAJ 1.1
