Basically my problem is, i am trying to create a "little intelligent" group of nodes which when receives a job must change this classAd, the point is these jobs live under java universe. So i am left with the only possibility of using WS interface to attain such a condition.

So really a "condor_config_val -set" SOAP call would help you a lot.

The collector is a "soft cache", meaning it's state is updated periodically and if it isn't updated it goes away. Therefore, a startd will periodically send a new ad to the collector and that ad will overwrite any old ads for the startd. If you directly modify the startd's ad with InsertAd your modification will only persist until the next time the startd updates its ad.
Ok I buy that. So whats the use of this insertAd, if it is going last only for UPDATE_INTERVAL

This is not true. Generally you do not know how long your change will be visible, because you do not know at what point between updates you are making your change. At best your change will last just shorter than the UPDATE_INTERVAL and at worst is will last for no time at all.
