See the one of the getting started guides for information on setting up integration services.
For example, for an SQL Call, this might be something like employeeSearch/execute
You can configure the inputs (if any) and results of your operation. To use the same input and result structure as the back end operation you are calling, select Use Structure From Called Action
for both inputs and results, and leave the Input Field Mapping
and Result Field Mapping
input choices on Automatic
You must use different techniques when working with data services and methods.
For example, IBM® WebSphere® Portlet Factory integration builders create data service operations and methods to support their operations in the WebApp. In the Action To Call
input, you can select either Data Services
. However, as a general rule, you should select the data service operation rather than the equivalent method. When you select an operation from Data Services
, the Service Operation builder can access information about the input and output parameters of the operations, including the schema type information. When you select from Methods
, you must specify the schema type for XML inputs or results.
The only supported methods are those with the following types of argument.
- No argument
- A single IXML argument
- One or more simple arguments (String, int/Integer, Double, Boolean, and the like)
So, for example, you cannot use methods that take a Bean argument or that take an IXML argument and one or more simple arguments.
