  We're calling a third-party web service, among several other things, that has a much more complex calling structure. We work with a 3rd-party app from a large company that isn't directly compatable with Oracle, but has interface libraries (only) for .NET.

  We're not calling our web service just to go back and edit our own database; that's a necessary secondary function for the purpose of logging the results.

  The code can't be called from an external procedure (AFAIK) because it isn't required to be in the same physical location, and because the one web service might be called by multiple databases, or multiple schemas within one database.

  I will take this under advisement. Seriously. I don't think we're looking to redesign or remove the web service at this point, however.
