    Use Map as return type/parameter in a web method..

    Raags R Newbie

      I tried to use Map as a return type in one of my web service methods but I got a JAXB error stating that it does not support Map because it's an interface.

      So I added an adapter for the Map but it gets ignored. Is it because JBossWS 1.2.1 GA does not support JAXB annotations on its classes? Do you know?

      @SOAPBinding(style = SOAPBinding.Style.DOCUMENT, use = SOAPBinding.Use.LITERAL, parameterStyle = SOAPBinding.ParameterStyle.WRAPPED)
      public class HelloWorldBean
       public void getMap(Map<String,Course> map)
      class CourseListAdapter extends XmlAdapter<Course[],Map<String,Course>> {
       public Map<String,Course> unmarshal( Course[] value ) {
       Map<String,Course> r = new HashMap<String,Course>();
       for( Course c : value )
       return r;
       public Course[] marshal( Map<String,Course> value ) {
       return value.values().toArray(new Course[value.size()]);

      Am I doing something wrong here?
