Hi Wizards, Geniuses and all other Brainiacs.
We have a wonderful suite of SOAP Webservices that our clients use to Get and Set data from our Database. We are running Natural 6.3.9 on a Linux OS. We have EntireX running and Brokers / RPCs doing their job.
Basically we create an IDL in Designer 9, generate the XMM file and from that generate the AAR file and deploy. Bazinga working Webservice that we test with SOAPUI.
I have been tasked with trying to replicate these wonderful web services using RESTful web services as well. I have searched and we don’t use web methods and to be honest I am grossly ignorant when it comes to the mechanics behind this. We have a single web service that consumes a RESTful Web service via REQUEST DOCUMENT however we need to provide the Webservice to be consumed.
So my list of questions are:
- The natural side of things (I figure) is pretty much standard, Receive the data in a dynamic variable and strip out the Contents into the correct fields and either populate the object or return a RESTful dataset. have I already lost the plot?
- Will EntireX handle the call to our Web service?
- Please - any information with this regard will really be appreciated.
