Subject [jira] Created: (AXIS2-4817) Inheritance on method parameters not working
Date Mon, 13 Sep 2010 20:23:32 GMT
Inheritance on method parameters not working

                 Key: AXIS2-4817
             Project: Axis2
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.5.1
         Environment: Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04, JDK 1.6u21, Tomcat 6.0
            Reporter: Chetan Saundankar

I have a test web service with following methods & classes,

public String addPerson(Person p) {
if(p instanceof Employee) {
return "Employee"; 
return "Person";
Note: Method is annotated with @WebMethod, @WebParam annotations, so is web service with @WebService.


Class Person {
private String name;

// getters and setters

Class Employee extends Person{
private int employeeNo;

// getters and setters

In spite of client sending the serialized Employee object the web service is always taking
it as a Person object. I have checked the soap packet on client with firebug tool, employee
number is present in the payload. I also check soap MESSAGE on server & their I dont see
employee number attribute.

Is this an expected behavior? I hope it is not.
Is there any way I can make this work without having write custom SOAP decoders?
