calling a class, webservice

The webservice which I am using has a class StateOptions, In the class I have static final variables and static final methods like


public static final java.lang.String _AK = org.apache.axis2.databinding.utils.ConverterUtil.convertToString("AK");

one such variable for each state


public static final StateOptions AK = new StateOptions(_AK,true);

one such method for each state.

and I have the constructor StateOptions which is protected. I am writing my webservice client in a different package

Now when I am setting the state in the address it requires an argument of type StateOptions.

like setState(GenderOptions.AK)

In my JSP, I am just reading the state (2 variables AK) how do I convert this to the type StateOPtions.AK or any other type which the user inputs.

Please advice
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
