Correct - RPC/encoded is not supported (which I did mention to you here) as a messaging mode and the "encoded" encoding style isn't supported at all, only the "literal" encoding style is supported under JAX-WS.
Basically SOAP 1.1 section 5 encoding was too ambiguous to be implemented consistently and some platforms couldn't even support it. RPC/encoded was a the root of many "interoperation nightmares". [ November 20, 2008: Message edited by: Peer Reynders ]
