Collection Classes, WSAD, and WebServices

Trying to create some webservice interfaces for methods that take maps as parameters. I think I have the wsdl correct and am guessing that the wizards just dont support collectin types correctly. I get the message

iwab0237w the sample jsp client does not support arrays:item correctly.

If anybody can point me to some examples/tutorials on the web that deal specifically with handling HashMaps or Collections in general in wsdl and JAX RPC particulary in working with them on WSAD and websphere I'd appreciate it. I've found lots of links for complex types and beans but few collection examples beyond arrays. And not a lot on handling untyped (any) objects in the collection.

for referencer here is the wsdl I was using to test a bean that echos back the contents of a map. I couldnt get anythign to work without specifically typing the keys and values as strings, but figured better to start simpled.
