[jboss-user] [JBossWS] - Specifying the server's URL in the client?

Simple question: What's the right way to set the server's URL from within the client?  The reason I ask is because I'll be distributing a client.  The user will be able to choose which server to connect to.  Other people will run servers; I don't even know what the servers will be.

Unfortunately it looks like the server URL is hard-coded in the WSDL file.  Fine, I could specify the WSDL file URL and have the client fetch it every time.  But the docs say this is a bad idea:

So what do I do?  Please don't tell me that Sun created a client-server network protocol where the server URL must be hard-coded in the client?
