I was wondering whether it's possible to create a JAX-WS web service which doesn't do type mapping? That is, I would like to do the type mapping myself using XPath for instance.
The question is, if the JAX-WS web service can be created in such a way, that it simply provides either a SOAPMessage object, or for instance a bytestream representation of the message, which can then be parsed manually.
I know it's possible to get the SOAPMessage from the MessageContext, but I would still like to avoid the web service to spend any time on doing automatic type mapping.

I came across the javax.xml.ws.Provider interface, which seems to be what I'm looking for. Any thoughts on this?
