entity Service using external Service (Web services)

Hi, experts

I have the following problem:

one business object "Staff" uses two methods "getEmployeeByEmployeeId" and "getAllEmployees" in a web service. I have the entity Service "Staff" and define the mapping between "findById" and "getEmployeeByEmployeeId", between "findAll" and "getAllEmployees".

I have done the configuration of webservices and mapping in the CAF runtime.

The webservice runs and I get the results what I want.

But if I go to the test tool in CAF runtime and test the Entity Service Staff.

For "findById" I get the following error:

java.lang.ClassCastException: class incompatible with interface java.util.List:null




at sap.prototyp.modeled.bonode.staff.staff.StaffBean.findByMultipleParameters(

at sap.prototyp.modeled.bonode.staff.staff.StaffBean.findById(

for the other I get the error: Operation not supported.


at sap.prototyp.modeled.bonode.staff.staff.StaffBean.getZoneMemberStaffAssiciation(

I have checked for the first error: the cardinality of both is 0...1 (strange: from the webservice method I get the cardinality 1...1, and I can not change it)

For the second error...I think it seem somehow problem with the association: Can the entity service using remote Persistence have the asscociation with another business objects?

Thanks in advance fot any Hints and

Kind Regars!
