    In class com.ibm.ws.sca.binding.ejb.handler.EJBMessageHandler,
    there is a method to return an object based on an input
    parameter that  indicates the object type. When the type is
    java.util.List, an abstract interface is read from the object,
    even though the object does not have an abstract interface. As
    a result, the java.rmi.MarshalException is thrown.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM Business Process Manager V8.5.0.1.
    After the fix is applied,  the correct interface will be
    called when an import with EJB binding invokes a method
    containing java.util.List as the parameter type.
