The WSIT tutorial now includes guidelines for designing data contracts for designing interoperable WCF and Java clients/services.
WSIT clients and service providers use JAX-WS/JAXB for interoperating with WCF clients and service providers. JAXB and WCF serialization mechanisms while similar in some aspects, differ in others such as the support for XML schema constructs, datatype <-> XML schema mapping. The Data Contracts chapter in WSIT tutorial discusses some of the common databinding differences between JAXB and the different WCF serialization mechnisms and recommends some guidelines.
So, check out the Data Contracts chapter and let us know your feedback at Web Services Interoperability Technology Forum . I will evolve the guidelines based on the feedback.
