Yeah, the generated jaxrpc-mapping.xml does have <param-type>java.lang.String</param-type> and Yes, i do have .... type='xsd:string'/> like thing in my part definitions in WSDL. But that is there for a reason, which i will try to explain.

As a matter of fact, wscompile does not allow to have primitive types (like xsd:string etc) to be specified like following:
<message name = "methodName">
  |     <part name = "paraName" element = "xsd:string"/>
  | </message>
If used, wscompile gives error and skips mapping for this method. Please note that this behavior is peculiar to document based web wervices _only_ (this is allowed in rpc style). So, in document based services, i have to wrap these primitive types in wrapper types like this
<message name = "methodName">
  |     <part name = "paraName" element = "ns2:wrapperString"/>
  | </message>
and then, combination of following fragment in types section of the WSDL gives me the equavilent desired effect.
<complexType name = "wrapperStringType">
  |     <sequence>
  |         <element
  |             name = "parameterOne"
  |             type = "string"
  |             nillable = "true"/>
  |     </sequence>
  | </complexType>
  | <element name = "wrapperString" type = "tns:wrapperStringType"/>

Now everything is fine with attachment-less webservices. But for the web-service where i need attachment support, the message _has_ to be defined as 
<message name = "methodWithAttachment">
  |     <part name = "paraName" element = "ns2:wrapperString"/>
  |     <part name = "attachmentContents" type = "xsd:string"/>
  | </message>
Interestingly enough, the wscompile tool does _not_ show any error/warning while generating mapping. The attachmentContents above is my parameter defined in mime:content (which happens to be of type text/plain), so that could be the possible reason of wscompile staying silent on this part being specified as xsd:string.

But at deployment time i get the following warning and then exception (as i mentioned in my first post):

Phew! No wonder, writing this all down is more difficult than explaining on face.
