Subject RE: Char datatypes with SOAP
Date Fri, 04 Oct 2002 19:33:57 GMT
A Java char is 16 bits. Often Java's API will require an int where it needs a char because
a byte won't work (well, I don't know exactly why they used an int instead of a char, but...)

  I believe byte is a possible data type, and as long as the datatype is 
8 bits it shouldn't matter, you can convert back and forth.
