Here is a way to get headers on the server side. It will fill up an assoc with all headers in a namespace. In its current state, it only handles text content; but each header is expanded to a DOMNode, so you can do whatever you wish to parse custom types.

In my case this method is useful because I want to pass PHPSESSID in a SOAP header, and I need to set it before I even call SoapServer::handle().

//
// READ SOAP HEADERS, STOP READING AT SOAPENV:BODY ELEMENT
//
$xml = new XmlReader();
$xml->XML( $HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA );

$shoppingCartHeaders = array();
while( $xml->read() ) {
    if( $xml->namespaceURI == "urn:com.plauditdesign.shoppingcart.client.headers#"
        && $xml->nodeType == XMLReader::ELEMENT ) {

        $headerNode = $xml->expand();
        $shoppingCartHeaders[ $xml->localName ] = $headerNode->textContent;
    } elseif( $xml->namespaceURI == "http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
        && $xml->nodeType == XMLReader::ELEMENT
        && $xml->localName == "Body" ) {

        $xml->close();
    }
}

...

if( isset( $shoppingCartHeaders["sessionId"] ) ) {
    session_id( $shoppingCartHeaders["sessionId"] );
}

...

$server->setPersistence( SOAP_PERSISTENCE_SESSION );
$server->handle();

I was unable to connect to .net using any of the previous notes. I found out that the easiest way is the one that works. Everyone is trying to use soapvar . but you dont need to.

$ns = 'http://blabla.com/Services/Services';
$AuthHeader = new AuthHeader($LoginResponse);
$header =  new SoapHeader($ns,"AuthHeader",  $AuthHeader,false);
$this->soapClient->__setSoapHeaders(array($header));

my header was suppose to look like this
<soapenv:Header>
<ns1:AuthHeader>
<ns1:SessionKey>xxxx</ns1:SessionKey>
<ns1:SessionRole>xxxxx</ns1:SessionRole>
<ns1:UserType>xx</ns1:UserType>
<ns1:UserName>xxx</ns1:UserName>
</ns1:AuthHeader>
</soapenv:Header>

so my AuthHeader is just a simple class
class AuthHeader
{
  var $SessionKey;//string
  var $SessionRole;//string
  var $UserType;//string
  var $UserName;//string
 
  function __construct($LoginResponse)
  {
     $this->SessionKey  = $LoginResponse->LoginResult->SessionKey;
     $this->SessionRole = $LoginResponse->LoginResult->SessionRole;
     $this->UserType    = $LoginResponse->LoginResult->UserType;
     $this->UserName    = $LoginResponse->LoginResult->UserName;

  }
}

The important lesson here is the when you build your header you can use a normal class. It does not need to be a soapvar

To do headers (the raw way):

    // Setting "trace" will allow us to view the request that we are making, after we have made it.
    $objClient = new SoapClient("http://www.somewhere.com/wsdls/some.wsdl", array('trace' => true));

    // These parameters satisfy this specific remote call.
    $arrParameters_Login = array('username' => 'username', 'password' => 'password', 'company' => 'Company');

    // Invoke the remote call "login()".
    $objLogin =  $objClient->login($arrParameters_Login);

    // Grab session ID that this remote call will provide.
    $strSessionID = $objLogin->loginReturn->sessionId;

    // Set headers-- The remote call "query()" will require a header pointing to our session.

    $strHeaderComponent_Session = "<SessionHeader><sessionId>$strSessionID</sessionId></SessionHeader>";

    $objVar_Session_Inside = new SoapVar($strHeaderComponent_Session, XSD_ANYXML, null, null, null);
    $objHeader_Session_Outside = new SoapHeader('namespace.com', 'SessionHeader', $objVar_Session_Inside);

    // More than one header can be provided in this array.
    $objClient->__setSoapHeaders(array($objHeader_Session_Outside));

    // Set the query parameters.

    $strQuery = 'select empID from Time where empID = 92389278';
    $arrParameters_Query = array('queryString' => $strQuery);

    // Make call.

    $objResponse = $objClient->query($arrParameters_Query);

    header('Content-Type: text/xml; ');
    print($objClient->__getLastRequest());

The request that goes out:

<SOAP-ENV:Envelope>
    <SOAP-ENV:Header>
        <SessionHeader>
            <sessionId>8789364113604871127</sessionId>
        </SessionHeader>
    </SOAP-ENV:Header>
    <SOAP-ENV:Body>
        <ns1:query>
            <ns1:queryString>select empID from Time where empID = 92389278</ns1:queryString>
        </ns1:query>
    </SOAP-ENV:Body>
</SOAP-ENV:Envelope>

To build the authentication headers like below FOR WSDL:

**NOTE** I cannot find documentation on the __setSoapHeaders() method, though it does work in 5.0.4

<?php

class MySoapClass
{

    function
__construct(){
       
// Blah blah blah
       
$this->soap = new SoapClient($this->foo, $this->bar);

    }

   
// Build that header!
   
private function build_auth_header(){
       
// Build an object with parameters
       
$auth->username = $this->username;
       
$auth->password = $this->password;
       
       
$authvalues = new SoapVar($auth, SOAP_ENC_OBJECT);
       
$header =  new SoapHeader($this->name_space, "Authentication", // Rename this to the tag you need
                                                         
$authvalues, false);

       
$this->soap->__setSoapHeaders(array($header));
       
    }

   
// Wrapper so we can build auth header first
   
public function MySoapFunction($params){

       
$this->build_auth_header();
       
$this->soap->MySoapFunction($params);

    }

}
?>

In botoom code is bug.

is:

// create authentication header values
$authvalues=new SoapVar($auth,SOAP_ENC_OBJECT,'authenticate');

should be:

// create authentication header values
$authvalues=new SoapVar($auth,SOAP_ENC_OBJECT);

If you are using WSDL to define your SOAP Headers, note that PHP's SoapServer class will not process incoming headers unless the <message> and <part> names are identical for the header methods.

Define a SOAP header function like this in WSDL:

<!-- replace "tns:" with your own namespace abbreviation -->

<!-- define method arguments using a complexType -->
<xsd:complexType name="HeaderMethodArgs">
    <xsd:all>
        <xsd:element ... name="arg1"/>
        <xsd:element ... name="arg2"/>
    </xsd:all>
</xsd:complexType>

<!-- define method message with single part -->
<message name='headerMethodName'>
    <part name='headerMethodName' type='tns:HeaderMethodArgs'/>
</message>

<!-- add header tag to operations that use this header -->
<operation name='someBodyMethod'>
    ...
    <input>
        <soap:body .../>
        <soap:header
            ...
            message='tns:headerMethodName'
            part='headerMethodName'
        />
    </input>
    <output>...</output>
</operation>
