    Why can't Jbossws 3.2.2 GA consume coldfusion webservice return type xsd:anyType

    steve DeWitt Newbie

      I have a coldfusion 8 webservice that returns an array (jbossws sees this as xsd:anyType)


          <cffunction access="remote" name="testMethod" returntype="array">
              <cfset myArray = ArrayNew(1)>
              <cfset myArray[1] = "Steve">
              <cfreturn myArray/>


      I am using jboss 5.1 GA community with Jbossws 3.2.2.GA consuming the service. The stubs are being built with axis 1.4


                  VerityService_Service locator = new VerityService_Service(verityServiceURL,new QName("http://webservices", "verityService"));
                  ChunkedEncodingFeature feature = new ChunkedEncodingFeature(false);


                  VerityService verityService = locator.getVerityServiceCfc(feature);
                  List<Object> helloWorld = verityService.testMethod();


      if I call this from a coldfusion page I get a nice array. If I call it from my java code running on the jboss server it returns: [[testMethodReturn: null]]


      I used wireshark and sniffed the http protocol and I get an xml packet:


          <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
          <testMethodResponse xmlns="http://webservices">
           <testMethodReturn xsi:type="xsd:string">Steve</testMethodReturn>


      A very similiar but a little more useful webservice has been working fine with jboss 4.0.2 for a few years now and we are just migrating to jboss 5.1 and this is happening.


      Anyone have a similiar issue?


      Jbossws 3.2.2 GA can use the tns1:DocumentQuery returntype. I changed my  code to return this type but that means I have to change the method  that calls the webservice.


      I attached the wsdl and the generated stubs for the method that doesn't seem to work.


      I did add another method to the webservice that returns the type DocumentQueryBean and that seems to work just fine while the method that returns anyType fails.
