In general it's much easier to return a Java array (i.e., a MyCustomClass) than an ArrayList, since an ArrayList could contain objects of any type.*
I can't help more than this - in Weblogic 8.1, I achieve a similar effect by writing the WSDL and schema first, then generating the Java interface/stubs from these. The Weblogic tools generate methods containing Java arrays rather than ArrayLists.
* That is, until Java 5. I've never used Web services with Java 5, so YMMV. [ August 17, 2005: Message edited by: Tim West ]

Thanks for your help Tim. I used the Java array and it worked fine.
