Creating a web service

Hi everyone,

I am trying to create a web service but without success.

Here is the simple code.


public class Main


public String doSomething(Request req)


return "hello" +;



class Request implements Serializable


public String name;


I right click on the class to create a web service and expose the "doSomething" methode.

When I try to test the web service, I get the following exception.

Deserializing fails. Nested message: XML Deserialization Error. Can not create instance of class [Request] when deserializing XML type [urn:][Request]..

Can someone help ?

Thanks a lot.

    Hi David,

    Have you tried declaring the class Request as public ?
