Below 2 similar methods which connect per cxf to web service servers. Each method connects to a different one. How can I improve this code?

Are FirstService and SecondService, FirstItem and SecondItem and FirstServiceResponse and SecondServiceResponse not related to each other? You can create an Interface for Service and Item which these would implement and then in your connectWS1 method you can program to an interface. You should make your method unaware of the type by encapsulating the type information as well.

I've thought about an interface, too, but it I'am unsure if it's without prblems to modify the automatic generated code of these classes. They were created by wsdl2java. I'am thinking about generics, too. Maybe a generic method would be fine to shorten the code until the for loop.
