D-Bus in Java problem

Hi, I am trying to communicate with a C++ Qt D-Bus daemon with a java
program to call a method, which returns a string. First I checked the
actual availability of the method via D-Bus with the tool D-Feet. So I am
able to call the method with this tool and I receive the result I expect.

The problem is, when I use dbus-java-2.7, I get the following error:

    at org.freedesktop.dbus.AbstractConnection.callMethodAsync(Unknown
    at de.tuberlin.kbs.performancemonitor.DataThread.run(DataThread.java:59)
    at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:722)

It is kind of obvious, that the "Unknown Source" might be the problem, but
I am hopelessly lost trying to determine the reason for this. For creation
of the connection and the interface I use the following:

UInt64 from = new UInt64(0);
UInt64 to = new UInt64(0);
dBusConnection = DBusConnection.getConnection(DBusConnection.SESSION);
dBusInterface =

The object IS remote and the method call produces the mentioned error.

What is the reason for "Unknown Source" and how can I fix that?

Thank you in advance!
