By ID do you mean URL?

Basically you bind different URLs to different instantiations of the
Java class.

One approach would be to write an abstract class with all the ZNG
handling, something like

public abstract class BaseZNGObject {
  String database = null

  public Test() {
  public ZNG(

// All the ZNG handling, database searching stuff.


Then write classes of the form

public class Database1ZNGObject extends BaseZNGObject {

  public Database1ZNGObject () {

public class Database2ZNGObject extends BaseZNGObject {

  public Database1ZNGObject () {

And then bind these classes to different URLs using the SOAP toolkit.
