      Description

      I'm attempting to return a @XmlRootElement annotated object called "Customer" from a @WebMethod. When calling the service, I get the following error in the server log:

      javax.xml.bind.JAXBException: [Lcom.gmail.at.cedrichurst.complexDataTypeWSExampleEJB.domain.Customer; is not known to this context

      ... 48 more

      From what I understand, the return type should be added to the JaxB context automatically.

      Just to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong in my Customer class, I added another method to my bean that returned a java.util.List of Strings. When calling this method, I also got the same sort of error:

      [javax.xml.bind.JAXBException: java.util.List is not known to this context]
      javax.xml.ws.WebServiceException: javax.xml.bind.MarshalException

      According to a thread in the OpenEJB mailing list:

      http://www.nabble.com/Returning-complex-data-types-in-%40WebResult-tc15114306.html

      ...it doesn't seem that these errors should be happening.

      I attempted to test this under CXF, but ran into another issue which is outlined in another JIRA.
