Subject Possible de-serialization bug
Date Tue, 14 Nov 2006 15:41:37 GMT


I found a bug (limitation in the XMLRPC library when it comes to
de-serializing Maps.

API method is:

 setSomething(Map<Integer, String> something)

However, when the map is de-serialized/reconstructred on the server-side the
key is not an integer. It is instead a char array (i.e. char[]).

That is,

on client:

 key: Integer(11)
 value: String("somestring")

 key: char[2] {'1','1'}
 value: String("somestring")

on server. Is this by design or is this a bug?

I am using Java 1.5, so I understand if generics don't work but
serialization/de-serialization shouldn't be affected by that or?
