Is it possible to create a data connection to a web service in LiveCycle Designer and utilize the form in Adobe Reader?

The tip Understanding the Execute Function in LiveCycle Designer details how to create a new data connection to a web service and then drag and drop the fields to your form. However, be aware that web services do not work with Adobe Reader unless you've extended the rights of the PDF using Adobe LiveCycle Reader Extensions.
