Collection classes and interoperability

In JAX-RPC 1.0, it is claimed that the Collection classes are supported -
for example Vector and Hashtable.

How complete is this support? In particular, can I call a service that
uses SOAP::LITE or Apache Soap that returns a Collection?

The reason I ask is that when I try this I get deserialization errors.
It's fine when I return a simple type (so I haven't completely messed
up), and it's fine when I use Apache Soap or Apache Axis on the client,
but I've had no luck so far with a JAX-RPC DII client.

I've attached the errors in case they mean anything to someone.
