    Wrong Serialization when rpc/literal style is used?

    florian pitschi Newbie

      I am using jboss4.0.1sp1 and have used rpc/enc for my deployed webservices until now (which worked fine after solving some initial problems...)
      I want to change to rpc/lit now.
      To do that, I created my wsdl from my java-interface again with wscompile, using the -f:rpclit option. It looks ok, and I think that jboss is creating the right typemapping for my SimpleInfoBean in the wsdd (encoding style is now ''):

      <typeMapping
       qname='ns1:SimpleInfo' xmlns:ns1='http://db.bioinfo.rzg.mpg.de'
       type='java:de.mpg.rzg.bioinfo.db.SimpleInfo'
       serializer='org.jboss.webservice.encoding.ser.MetaDataBeanSerializerFactory'
       deserializer='org.jboss.webservice.encoding.ser.MetaDataBeanDeserializerFactory'
       encodingStyle=''>
       <typeDesc>
       <elementDesc fieldName='intProperty' xmlName='intProperty'/>
       <elementDesc fieldName='stringArrayProperty' xmlName='stringArrayProperty'/>
       <elementDesc fieldName='stringProperty' xmlName='stringProperty'/>
       <elementOrder> <element name='intProperty'/>
       <element name='stringArrayProperty'/>
       <element name='stringProperty'/>
       </elementOrder> </typeDesc>
       </typeMapping>
      


      Is this correct for rpc/lit?
      I am calling the webservice-method (method takes a String, returns a SimpleInfo-Object) using a DII client.

      The request SOAP message looks like:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <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">
       <soapenv:Body>
       <ns1:getObjekt soapenv:encodingStyle="x" xmlns:ns1="http://db.bioinfo.rzg.mpg.de">
       <String_1>diimitwsdl</String_1>
       </ns1:getObjekt>
       </soapenv:Body>
      </soapenv:Envelope>
      


      I use the soapenv:encodingStyle="x" (instead of "") becuase otherwise, an ""-namespace is created for the child element and jboss doesn't like that ;-)

      The response is:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <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">
       <soapenv:Body>
       <ns1:getObjektResponse xmlns:ns1="http://db.bioinfo.rzg.mpg.de">
       <ns1:SimpleInfo>
       <intProperty>10</intProperty>
       <stringArrayProperty>a</stringArrayProperty>
       <stringArrayProperty>bc</stringArrayProperty>
       <stringArrayProperty>diimitwsdl</stringArrayProperty>
       <stringProperty>diimitwsdl</stringProperty>
       </ns1:SimpleInfo>
       </ns1:getObjektResponse>
       </soapenv:Body>
      </soapenv:Envelope>
      


      I wonder why a
      <ns1:SimpleInfo>
      element is used instead of
      <result>
      .

      becuase the WSDL defines that the returned element's name is "result":
      <message name="SeqReferenceInfoEndpoint_getObjektResponse">
      <part name="result" type="tns:SimpleInfo"/>


      Looks like the server-side is creating the right response except that it uses ns1:SimpleInfo instead of result.

      On the client side, can i use

      typemappingLIT.register(SimpleInfo.class,
       simpleinfoQNAME,
       new BeanSerializerFactory(SimpleInfo.class, simpleinfoQNAME),
       new BeanDeserializerFactory(SimpleInfo.class, simpleinfoQNAME));
      


      to register the right Serializers/Deserializers (i did that with rpc/enc)?

      If I need custom-(de)serializers on the client or server - side, which tool should I use to create them (wscompile?wsdl2java?)? Are there any examples for doing this somewhere?

      Thanks for your help!!!
