Subject Problem using Spring/ArrayList
Date Wed, 04 Jun 2008 20:39:39 GMT


I'm trying to use Axis2 1.4 Spring as a transport for objects containing an
ArrayList.  This is not working for me.


XP SP2/JDK1.6.0_06/Apache 2.2/Tomcat 5.5/Axis 2 1.4 using war install.


Using the WeatherSpringService example, I modify the Weather class to
contain ArrayList<String> comments.  I add getter and setter methods.  I set
a comment.


Generated WSDL shows:


<xs:complexType name="Weather">


<xs:element minOccurs="0" name="comments" nillable="true"

<xs:element minOccurs="0" name="forecast" nillable="true" type="xs:string"/>

<xs:element minOccurs="0" name="howMuchRain" type="xs:float"/>

<xs:element minOccurs="0" name="rain" type="xs:boolean"/>

<xs:element minOccurs="0" name="temperature" type="xs:float"/>




When I execute the getWeather method the SOAP passed back shows:


<ns:return type="sample.spring.bean.Weather">

<ax21:comments>it's nice now!</ax21:comments>

<ax21:forecast>le matin</ax21:forecast>






(i.e. the set value is being transported) 


During testing, I added a setComments(ArrayList<String> cmt) function to the
bean.  Later on, I included the following line after setting the internal


comments.add("setComments(ArrayList) was called with an array sized " +


This is set and says that the passed array was sized 0, so I conclude that
something in the transport is creating an ArrayList<String> and attempting
to set the bean with it, but doesn't populate the ArrayList first.


Am I missing something here?  Has anyone made something like this work
successfully?  It would make my life easier if I could make this work.
