You seem to be mixing JWSDP and JBossWS libs in the client classpath. Try removing the JWSDP libraries and solely rely on the JBOSS_HOME/client/*.jar libraries. You may also take a look at the jbossws samples that ship with the distribution.
yep that was it. cheers. I had installed Suns ws kit and followed it's installation instructions( java.endorsed.dir etc.)
I swear I spent more time sorting out LIB issues than coding solutions. ah well. alls well that endpoints well I guess.
