Is "direct" web service call possible using java mapping?


I'd like to know if it's possible to call a web service from a java mapping (or from a UDF) DIRECTLY, without using the SOAP Adapter (as explained in /people/bhavesh.kantilal/blog/2006/11/20/webservice-calls-from-a-user-defined-function)

Using the Developer Studio, when you create a Web Service Client, the NWDS will create some classes that act as a proxy to communicate with the web service. What I'm doing is uploading these classes (in a .jar file to the namespace of the java mapping) and using them for calling the web service.

But I'm getting some exceptions precisely when calling the remote method of the web service:

- Connection IO Exception --> when I've used SAP Netweaver as the web service runtime for creating the client classes in NWDS

- java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError at org.apache.axis.handlers.BasicHandler.<clinit>( --> when using AXIS for creating the client classes in NWDS

I'm wondering if there might be some restrictions in the java mapping for avoiding external connections without using adapters? I mean, maybe if I try to stablish an ftp connection from a java mapping using my own imported classes that might not be possible either?
