I'm using a demo example to return a object(Company class) via web services.

public class CompanyWS{

* @return company object
public Company getCompanyData(int optionalInt){
Company company = new Company();
String [] employeeNames = new String[] { "Hari", "Vijay" , "Nischal" };
company.companyID = 8929;
company.companyName = "ABC";
company.employeeNames = employeeNames;
return company;

class Company {
public int companyID;
public String companyName;
public String[ ] employeeNames;

import java.net.URL;
import javax.xml.namespace.QName;
import javax.xml.rpc.ParameterMode;
import org.apache.axis.client.Call;
import org.apache.axis.client.Service;

public class CompanyClient {

public static void main(String [] args) throws Exception {

Service service = new Service();
Call call = (Call)service.createCall();
String endpoint = "http://localhost:8080/axis/CompanyWS.jws";
call.setTargetEndpointAddress(new URL(endpoint));
call.setOperationName(new QName("getCompanyData"));

call.addParameter("param1", new QName("XSD_INTEGER"),ParameterMode.IN);
call.setReturnType(new QName("XSD_ANYTYPE"));
Integer[] inputParams = new Integer[]{new Integer(2)};

Object responseObject = new Object();
responseObject = (Object)call.invoke(inputParams);

System.out.println("Got responseObject: " + responseObject);


The problem is when line:
responseObject = (Object)call.invoke(inputParams);

is executed...it gives following error:

faultCode: {http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/}Server.userException
faultString: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException

Just to add more:
Company.class is in axis\WEB-INF\classes.(Is it right?)

and CompanyWS.jws is in axis folder.
(It generates CompanyWS.class + Company.class in axis\WEB-INF\jwsClasses.
