Axiom manipulation error

                 Key: ODE-591
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ODE-591
             Project: ODE
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.2
            Reporter: Alexis Midon
            Assignee: Alexis Midon
             Fix For: 1.3.1

when there's a carriage return either before or after the name then you get strange null pointer
exceptions in the DeploymentWebservice code as it expects the Xml to be in a particular form
and text-nodes in the DOM *really* make it un-happy. 

This problem  seems to be in the following code.

OMElement zipPart = (OMElement) namePart.getNextOMSibling();

This code is vulnerable if a carriage return is present after the <name> tag before
<package> tag. AFAIK this happens because of the behaviour of Axiom. Axiom creates an
OMText node for the carriage return. So when getNextOMSibling() is called instead of <package>
element OMText is selected. But since the OMText cannot be cast to OMElement a ClassCastException
occurs. This can be avoided by obtaining zipart OMElement with a call to getChild() or any
related method which returns an OMElement reference. I can provide a patch for this if necessary.
