I had read on one of the forums that the above class isn't permitted for GWT. Iam assuming the problem has to do with Dom4j's use of the above class. Is there any implementation of DOM4J which doesn't use this class?
Iam using the jar dom4j-1.6.1.jar; Below is the source for Server Implementation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Class - FetchPlgplfServiceImpl.java (Server side implementation)
I would be surprised if Dom4J were explicitly using a socket. It's just an XML parser after all. But it's possible that something in your XML document refers to a URL, and therefore the parser tries to read the document at that URL. Culprits could be DTD or schema references, for example.

Thanks a lot Paul. I found out the problem. Iam trying to connect to DB2 database sitting on a AS/400.
Iam using the jt400.jar as the jdbc driver and that seems to be referencing the socket class.
