Hello all,
I am relatively new to web services. we're using Axis 1.1 in our Development environment.
i have to create some custom Srializers/Deserializers to pass complex java objects back and forth.
I have tried to look up the Axis product documentation but could not find much info there.
Can anybody please be kind enough to help me provide some helpful links or inputs.
Thanks in advance.

See this example " ", it should also available inside your axis package.
BYW you don't have to create custom se/deriliazer, just need to map them..

Thanks for your efforts. I appreciate it. I think i failed to put my point across in the right manner.
We have a some Java Classes which are not Java Beans and also contain some complex data types like Arrays, Collections or more like an entity object. I guess for this kind of stuff the DefaultBeanSerializer may not be sufficient.
I was wondering if there's any material which could explain me how to develop a custom Deserializer by extending org.apache.axis.encoding.DeSerializerImpl.
or any info which could help me figure out how to go about it. I was having a look at axis samples but I don't know if it gives me enough understanding.
Thanks once again.
I agree. Here's the link:
