only the .NET systems will handle it.
Best to come up with your own datatypes/XML message format for
representing the results and manually marshall the stuff in to it. It is
extra work, but it is the only approach that makes sense in the long run.
See : The wondrous curse of interop
http://www.iseran.com/Steve/papers/interop/ . There is also an MS press
book on .NET/Java interop, that I havent seen but which sounds pretty good.
