I have a WSDL, with which I created Java Classes through WSDL2Java tool. But the problem is not all attributes that are returned from the response SOAP XML will have a value. Some may be null also. So when I construct back the objects from the response, it is not able to parse double object or Integer object as the nulls encounter NumberFormatException. Is there anyway I can specify to by pass null objects during Java Classes creation through the tool or do we have other good way to handle this.

Hi!
If you have the opportunity to be able to edit the WSDL, then use minOccurs="0" for elements that are optional.
There is also a nillable attribute for elements that can be set to true to allow for null values: nillable="true"
Best wishes!

Thanks Ivan.

Any other alternatives than changing the WSDL? Because we dont have an independence to change the WSDL.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
