Serialization/deserialization of custom types

I am trying to figure out how to serialize/deserialize custom Java objects. I was hoping to be able to provide a SerializerFactory/DeserializerFactory for my custom Java objects rather than make them be JavaBean property. Can this be done?
>>From everything I have read in wsdp tutorial and JAX-RPC Specification it seems that this should be doable. In Chapter 19, Appendix: Serialization Framework, of JAX-RPC Reference Implementation, they are even talking about how would one go about doing this, and they mention com.sun.xml.rpc.encoding.soap.SOAPSerializer class, but I cannot find this class in wsdp package.
Can anyone let me know if this is doable? And if yes what would be the steps to do this?
I do know how to do this making my custom classes value types, but this does not fit exactly with what I am trying to do.
I would appreciate your help.
Thank you.
