This page was created to explain the using of ArrayDeserializer in Web Services.

Here is a sample for the definition of a Web Service with a method using Array of String.

A method String[] get4xHelloWorld() has been defined to return an array of String containing 4 string for a Hello World in 4 languages. The definition of the WSDD file seems to be correct, the client java file are correctly generated with the tool WSDL2Java from Axis, and the server returns a SOAP message coresponding to the answer to the request with the 4 languages in an array. But the client can't find a good deserializer.

If you have an answer for this problem, you can modified this page to identify the correct definition of this sample. NB : This seems not be a problem with the version of Axis or woth the Weblogic server.

Thanks for the users of this sample.
