Hi -

I have developed a simple web service using JAXRPC-1.6 and deployed on
to Tomcat 5.0 for JWSDP.

My Client is of DII type and one of the service endpoint interface
operation returns a ArrayList which contains String elements.
When my client program invokes this operation I get the following stack

Exception thrown :deserialization error: XML reader error: unexpected
character content: "Temp1"
stack trace :deserialization error: XML reader error: unexpected
character content: "Temp1"
    at com.sun.xml.rpc.client.dii.BasicCall.invoke(

Please note as JAX-RPC1.6 implementation provides for deserializer and
serializers for Collection and its type interfaces, I have not written

WebService was created using define attribute of wscompile with
config.xml containing the service information.

Anyone out there any clue on what is missed out, please

thanks for your help.

p.s: if this is not the right forum please let know.
