Subject Re: wsdl2java-generated beans are not Introspector compliant
Date Fri, 18 Apr 2008 19:26:46 GMT

This is not something we have control over.   This is per JAXB 
sepcification.   Section 5.5.1 of the JAXB spec specifically states that 
boolean values are mapped to "isXXX()", not "getXXX".

In anycase, we don't do the schema->java bean mapping.   That is handled 
by the JAXB runtime code generator from Sun, not CXF code.  CXF 2.1 will 
use the 2.1.6 version of the JAXB generators whereas 2.0.x uses 2.0.  
Thus, someething MIGHT be different in this case, but I don't expect it 
to be since the spec is pretty clear about it.
