Yes, you can call web services through appium scripts.

URL obj = new URL(url);
HttpURLConnection con = (HttpURLConnection) obj.openConnection();

  	//add reuqest header
  	int responseCode = con.getResponseCode();
  	System.out.println("\nSending 'GET' request to URL : "+ url);
  	System.out.println("Response Code : " + responseCode);
  	BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(
  	        new InputStreamReader(con.getInputStream()));
  	String inputLine;
  	StringBuffer response = new StringBuffer();
  	while ((inputLine = in.readLine()) != null) {
  	//print result
  	System.out.println("Request response:: "+response.toString());
