Problem while creating WebService in WSAD 5.1.1

I have a EJB that exposes one service which happens to return
an org.w3c.dom.Element data type something like this

public org.w3c.dom.Element sayHello() throws java.rmi.RemoteException;

Now when i try to generate my Web Service via the Web Services Wizard
I get a "Error in generating WSDL file from Java" error

Sequence of steps I followed:

(1) New->Other->Web Services-Web Service
(2) Selected "EJB Web Service" as the "Web service Type"
(3) Left only "Overwrite files without warning"
and "Create folders when necessary" checked
(4) In the "Service Deployment Configuration" pane
I have the EJB project and Router project populated
(5) In the "Web Service EJB Selection Pane"
I have ensured the following are populated
JNDI provider URL,
JNDI initial context factory,
EJB JNDI name,
EJB Home interface class name,
EJB remote interface class name

Left "use an existing service endpoint interface" unchecked

Selected "SOAP over HTTP" transport

(6) In the "Web Service Java Bean Identity" pane
I leave my only method selected and I leave "Document/Literal"
as the Style and Use checked

Security configuration is set to "No Security"

At this point I get an error when I click "next"

IWAB0398E Error in generating WSDL file from Java

In Details ->

WSWS3324E: Error: Problems encountered trying to write schema for
org.w3c.dom.Element; nested exception is:

This creation worked in WSAD 5.0.2 and after upgrading we are
facing with this problem.

Thanks in advance

I tried a simple restart of WSAD and rebuild and that worked for me.
I agree. Here's the link:
