By "Webfocus Stored procedure", do you just mean a fex? Simply issue a properly formed servlet request (with credentials, if necessary) in a URL string and specify the content that will be returned based on the output format of the fex being requested.

Something like
http : // servername/ibi_apps/WFServlet?IBIF_ex=fexname&IBIC_user=uusername&IBIC_pass=userpass



Regards,

Darin

The way I have had this working is to use WebFOCUS Web services; this is the only way I know of.

You might be interested in the API documents

ReportCaster

WebFOCUS

If you're writing Java applications these APIs shouldn't present any problems to you.
