Which XML-RPC Java library are you using?

This depends on what exact function name the Java client is trying to call.
For example, you could try:

def function():
   # function code here

server.register_function('aHandlerName.functionName', function)

If above doesn't work, you could log the network communication and look at
the XML-RPC HTTP request to see what function name is being called.
