I have a webService Provider URL where in provider is been created in Java on some server by Java team. So far we are consuming it in webMethods and using it. I wanted to create the same webService Provider in webMethods using the URL been shared by Java team and wanted to create a Consumer webService in webMethods.
Does webMethods support this… Any impacts by doing in this way ? Kindly share your valuable thoughts.
It won’t create the functionality of the webService as WSDL contains only high level details of the functionality. Please try n share results.
Thanks MR for your notes.
Any other comments on this ?
Let me see if I follow:
- A web service exists today and it is hosted on some Java-based server
- webMethods IS consumes this web service directly today via web service connectors
- You would like to create a web service provider in the IS using the WSDL from the existing Java web service
- You would then like to point your existing consumer to the new web service hosted on the IS
Did I understand correctly? If so, why?
Also, assuming my understanding is correct, are you porting the web service completely from the Java platform to the IS (i.e. you’re re-implementing the logic in the IS)? Or will your new web service just act as a proxy to the Java web service?
All this is feasible but it would be important to understand the reasons behind it.
Yes Percio,your understanding is correct.
When I created a provider webService, I can see a flow service is been created with empty body.So I am using it to write my business functionality which is been get called when I called the consumer webService.
