Hi Myoungkyu,

In the future please send technical questions like these to the
odb-users mailing list (which I've CC'ed) instead of to me directly.
This way other developers who may have experienced a similar problem
can provide you with a solution. Plus questions and answers will be
archived and available to others with similar problems. Also see the
posting guidelines for more information:

The ODB runtime cannot possibly know how to serialize the
x10aux::ref<x10::lang::String> type. You will need to provide a value_traits
specialization for this, as I explained in my previous email. Please
study the 'mapping' example and the documentation to see how to do
