Traversing through the web tutorial, I see that I'm supposed to be able to return user objects from my web services. My attempts to do so, though, keep resulting in NoSuchMethodErrors. Methods on my service that return Strings have no such problems. Here's my understanding of the rules for value objects: * must be serializable * must have a public, no arg constructor * must have getters/setters for private data The generated WSDL file does reference the methods that return TestData objects, so I believe I've set up the jaxrpc-ri.xml file appropriately for wscompile to generate the ties. Any guidance/ideas? All of the Jax-rpc examples in the tutorial just return a String, so I haven't seen a working example to figure out what's probably a stupid mistake on my part.
