Problem creating mbo from web service


I am just beginning SUP development and I'm following along a few tutorials for MBO development.

Just so I know I'm doing this correctly I'll document the process I'm going through. I can view the web service in the web services folder in Enterprise Explorer. I created this web service from a local WSDL file. So I go into my new project, right click and select new mbo. I then name it and specify the the data source which is my web service. It is at this point that my case differs from tutorials.

My web service has no response. I just receives data so there is no XLST file. So I just manually add some dummy xml in order to continue with the creation of the MBO. I add credentials for authentication and then hit next.

In the Parameters screen it tells me I have an invalid parameter name of 'type' because I can't use a java or C# keyword. So I change it's name and hit next. Here's where I get an error that won't let me proceed. Execution Error: "Error occured during execution, please check the default values of the selected input paramters and refresh again. Reason: java.lang.NullPointerException.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
