I'm new to web service. I'm using only Java SDK to create web services.

I'm writing some simple web services for testing and I have the following questions.

I have read that JAX-RPC supports array of primitive types. But when I write a simple web service.



and generate the client code from wsdl i get the following WS client interface.



It generates IntArray class having the member protected List


Is this how the arrays are supported in JAX-RPC? So, the only way to pass the array is to create an instance of IntArray and set List of Integers to it?

Also when i make the webservice to Document style

The WS client interface from WSDL has the following method:



The int[ ] array in the original service, became List< Integer>. Same is the case when i try using String array, it becomes List of String.

Does this mean that Array type in the web service is always converted to List in the client code generated from wsdl?
