Steps to Reproduce

1. Upgrade application from PRPC 6.1 SP2 to Pega 7.2.1.
2. Execute any Connect-SOAP rule.

Root Cause

Issue1: The soap header without namespace used to work earlier as there is a bug in praxiom library.

It is fixed now in the new axis stack and hence the exception. As per soap specification, every header should be namespace qualified.

Issue2: This issue was determined to be a product enhancement request as the current behavior is expected.
