Axis2 - could axis instantiate a Service through Factory, instead of Constructor ?

I'm trying out the new Axis2, and was wondering:
Is there a way to ask axis2 to instantiate my Service class through a factory, rather than a constructor ?

I mean, usually the "services.xml" is something like:
- < service >
- < parameter name="ServiceClass" locked="false" > package.MyService
So the axis2 servlet instantiates the service by calling "new MyService()".

Unfortunately, my service has a private constructor (for a good reason), and can only be instantiated through
- MyFactory.createInstance()
So I'm looking for is something in the lines of :
- < parameter name="ServiceFactory" > package.MyFactory

Is there an easy way to achieve this ?
