Return type of java services

Hello Everyone,

what is the return type of webmethods java services. Is it “void” or “IData” Object as in developers users guide it is mentioned that
“Services Take IData Objects as Input and Return IData as Output”.

so basing on this statement what is the exact return type of java services.

Thanks in Advance,

For WM 6.0.1 the service signatur is like this:
public static final void <servicename>(IData pipeline) throws ServiceException{

So its return type is void and it takes an IData as input and modifies it inplace (mutator method). Good day.
