Subject Re:[] versus String[][]
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2008 10:26:51 GMT
Hi Benson, hi all,

Indeed, you are right.
I was using a ServerFactoryBean, but since I annotated my classes with 
Jax-Ws annotations, CXF handled it as a jax-ws service with jaxb types.
Then I keeped my jax-ws annotations and use explicitly a 
JaxWsServerFactoryBean and a JaxWsClientFactoryBean (actually, I did not 
really need a DynamicClientFactory in my test).
And everything is now OK, databinding between jaxb xml types and Java 
types is ok.

Thank you for your help.
