I have a soap call with a method someMethod(ChildType Child1,
ChildType2 Child2). I am trying to read and put in child1 and child2.
I can try to put in the whole xml(request) as a payload but that does
not work due to some internal error.

Element tree is good but I cannot go and change the minidom code
already written, anyways let me see If I can do something with these.
