Subject Re: Generated Class Configuration

Thanks for the response :)

Ok, Maybe this time I'll success to explain my problem :) 

In fact, what I want to do is to use the generated classes (for the
client side) with a different Endpoint URL.
Because I am integrating Axis in an Application Server, and the user
must get an already configured interface when he perform a lookup on the
service, I have some constraints :

I cant say to the client : "If you use a webservices endpoint from a
module in the same application unit, you have to set the URL by hand in
your code!" It's impossible!
Here is a code snippet from the spec :
InitialContext ic = new InitialContext();
AddressBookService abf = (AddressBookService)  

So I have to preconfigure the service objects he will retrieve from the
lookup call.
When the user have a generated service class binded in the JNDI, the
endpoint URL of the Ports he might access are hardcoded! So I cannot
change them ! (no setEndpoint methods !).More, the generated Service
class construct a new **SoapBinding for each <service>.get<PortName>()
call (with the hardcoded endpointURL :'( ).

That why the only solution I find is to modify WSDL2Java!
