Question Generation of solenoidal magnetic fields

Hello, I am not a first time user of GEANT4, but haven't used it for a LONG time, and I'm now trying to approach it again. Before I do that, though, there's a question that I'd like to ask here, which ideally would receive a "yes/no" answer.

I need to simulate particles in a solenoidal field, generated by various solenoids of different size and length. By specifying the parameters for these solenoids (current, number of coils, material), is G4 able to generate the field map associated to these solenoids - complete of alterations to the field caused by magnetic materials - and propagate the particles into them accordingly, or do I need an additional software to generate the field map, and then import it into G4?

To rephrase the question, I need to obtain the field from two solenoids given their current, radius, length, number of coils and material. These solenoids are situated outside a cylinder built in magnetic material. Electrons are to be flown in the resulting magnetic field. Can all of this, and in particular the generation of the fields, be done in G4 or do I need additional software to generate the field map?

Thank you for your help. ~Francesco Granato
