It is definitely possible. WTKXSerializer implements the Serializer interface, which defines a readObject(InputStream) method. You can just pass this method a stream you have opened to the server.

You might even be able to do it using a GetQuery (though you will probably want to call the asynchronous version of execute(), the one that takes a TaskListener argument):

GetQuery query = new GetQuery("foo.com", "/bar.wtkx");
query.setSerializer(new WTKXSerializer());
Object result = query.execute();

Hope this helps. If you try it, I would be curious to know how it works out.

Hi,
 
We have a requirement for ‘dynamic screens’, i.e. the layout/type etc of widgets is configured at runtime by an admin and stored in the DB. Is there a way of loading WTKX files from the server to achieve this, rather than having them stored statically in a jar etc?
 
Thanks,
Steve R
