Serialization problem, VB.Net Client consuming Java Axis Web Service

P: n/a
I get the following exception when my VB.NET app calls a Java web service that returns an array of objects. The same call works for a single object though. So looks like there is no problem serializing the object but there seems to be a problem serializing an array of objects. Any help will be appreciated

"Cannot assign object of type System.Object[] to an object of type ElectronicWallet.C2PTest.PaymentItem."
