Bear in mind the above SOAP envelope is completely made up and derived from another service. In order to use your own SOAP web services in this fashion, you will need to understand what the contents of a SOAP request to your server actually looks like as an HTTP request.

The Eclipse Web Tools project also has a bit of SOAP oriented tooling.
