But this way is more of a 'workarround' rather then defacto OUT parameters.
If you use INOUT parameters you would be better off since the value of the
INOUT sent by the client (intialised to some default) could be effectively
ignored by the server code and a return value set. That is the INOUT could
be treated like an OUT parameter with the provisor that you simple intialise
some default value on the client side. I have used INOUT parameters like
this and it works ok.

Sean and Brian,

there *is* a way to get out params to work with Axis. You
need to bundle them in a complex return object like in the
following example:

public interface MyService {
    public MyOutParams foo(MyInParams inParams);

The negative consequence is that the resulting SOAP calls
read like 'structs in structs'. In our case the client calls
are 'hand-made' (not generated by Axis) and the client
programmers complain about the additional complexity which
is not justified by the SOAP spec only.

There is space for improvements in this issue..

to use INOUT

I had some questions about using "out" parameters. First of
all, can it be
done? Second of all, do I have to build a special deployment
descriptor to
do this, or can this still be done automatically (by copying
