hi friends..

I would like to use a java web service in my c# application. when the java webservice returns a string it is available in the c# or j# application but when it returns an arraylist it is not available. i need a result set from web service. I iterate through result set and append the content to arraylist. But when I returns the arraylist it is not available in c#. I think it is because in c# arraylist does not implement ISerialisable interface but in java it does. so How can i get the array list in c# as a return type of java webservice

Hardly a beginner's question . . . moving.

Assuming you are using J2EE, you might want to read chapter 5 of JAX-RPC specification which defines what kind of data can make up web service inputs and outputs. ArrayList is NOT one of them. You need to define an array. The array must be of a valid data type - primitive types, java beans of primitive types and more, look it up. - Coming soon!
I agree. Here's the link:
