Error description

  • When processing a SOAP message and null is returned for an
    asynchronous Web Service, the following error is seen:
    java.lang.ClassCastException:
    com.ibm.ejs.container.HandleListProxy incompatible with
    com.ibm.ejs.j2c.HandleList.
    
    When a WSDL with an INPUT element only is used in the top-down
    approach to indicate that a One-Way Web Service is needed, the
    error above appears. Even when the operation is defined as
    one-way, a two-way method is still invoked to deal with the
    request.

    ****************************************************************
    A one-way JAX-WS Web Service is defined with a Provider-based
    endpoint. Even if the operation is defined as one-way, a
    two-way method is still invoked to deal with the request. Thus
    when a null value is returned, an exception will be thrown.
