Only the Shibboleth IdP is written in Java. Shibboleth the SP is written 
in C++. If you're trying to implement an ECP client you'll probably find 
more support in the C++ SP implementation libraries for what you need.

Actually writing an ECP client is not difficult, you could probably 
cobble one together pretty easily from the standard Java libraries. An 
ECP client only needs to be able to parse and generate XML and 
communicate via HTTP. It does not need to be able to read or generate 
any SAML specific XML because an ECP client encapsulates the SAML in 
other XML (e.g. SOAP).
