> The problem seems to be about incorrect marshaling of arrays and lists. Looks like, for
each element in the array is called the method toString(), then all of the array elements
are separated by spaces and finally all the result is placed in a single xml element.
> As I see, according to the schema in the WSDL, every element of the array needs to be
in its own element. Then, calling toString() may work for a simple type, it is completely
meaningless for a complex types, as it is usually the string representation of the object's
> I get the same result with or without response wrapper objects. I observe it for the
return types, I have not tested it for arrays in the input paparameters.
> Can I use some other databinding mechanism, in order to avoid this and how?
> To demonstarate it, I have created a simple web service project. The service name is
"GenericService" there are four methods, returning: array of string, array of a complex type,
list of string and a list of a complex type.
> The attached file return_messages.txt contains the messages: as they are observed and
as they need to be for arrays. For lists, the messages are the same.
> Te attached file contains the sample geronimo/eclipse project, without
the axis2 libraries.
