Not a good idea to try to return a Java object in a web service, it greatly restricts your possible clients.
The whole idea behind web services is to separate the utility of the service from the language of implementation - thats why universal formats like XML and JSON are so widely used.

Thanks for your response, it is greatly appreciated.
My goal is to return the contents of the 'Person' Object, I'm not sure how to do this exactly. I was assuming the object would somehow be converted into the soap response format, but not exactly sure how to achieve this.
