I have been trying hard to get this resolved this, but haven't reached to any conclusion.

Here is my situation.
I have two entities called Parent and Child, where parent has a refernce to many child and child has one parent so inturn there is OneToMany(Bidirectional) relationship between them. When i expose this as a webservice I get the following exception :

<faultstring>Internal Server Error (circular reference detected while serializing: com.thoughtclicks.Parent)</faultstring>

This error occurs incase i expose the service as Document/Literal, incase i expose this service as RPC Encoded then this exception doesn�t occurs and everything is fine, but Axis2 doesn;t support client generation for RPC/Encoded so again a problem.

Also, I have already tried putting @XMLTransient annotation on getChild() of the Parent class, but it doesn�t help and i continue getting the same error.

Let me know if there is a work around for this solution.

Any pointers are highly appreciated.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
