My picture for the EJB Ws are that the WS stack do the XML->java
conversion of the invocation and then hand java representatons over to
the EJB Continaer to do the invocation and return the result to WS
stack.  [I know in thoery the "Invocation" object should be added to
the intercepter stack]. Then WS-stack will do the Java ->XML
conversion and send it back.

I hope what I am saying fits here, I too belive that the
SOAP/HTTP(XML)-> java conversion should not be put inside  EJB class
as it is the WS-Stack's job
