Problem in returning Complex user defined Objects within Hashmap

Hi,

I wrote a simple web service which returns Complex user defined objects like CustomerBean/UserBean within a Hash Map.

Here is the webservice:

public class MyWebservice{

public HashMap getData(HashMap requestData) {
//goes and gets the data from business service component and
//gets business objects and it is stored into response HashMap.
//example;
HashMap responseData = new HashMap();
responseData.put("customer",new CustomerBean());
return response;
}

public class CustomerBean implements java.io.Serializable {
// has attributes and its getter and setter method...
}

Web service is deployed in IBM Websphere Application Server 6 environment.

When client calls this web service, I am getting an exception at the server:
"Serialization cannot occur for CustomerBean"

Could you please explain what i am doing wrong. How to fix this issue...

Thanks
Jey

Kindly provide some details.

Is this a SOAP service? Which toolkit? What is the client? Operating system?

Did you create the service using an IDE? Which one?

etc etc
