With the URL to a service WSDL document in hand, you can add a service call to a model in IBM® WebSphere® Portlet Factory Designer.
In the builder call editor for the Web Service Call builder, you specify the URL to the WSDL document for the service. The builder call editor displays input fields according to the information contained in the WSDL document. You select a method in the service and specify the input values to that method.
The Web Service Call builder also allows you to specify any basic authorization needed and configure other aspects of the service call such as logging the inputs and outputs and profiling individual inputs on the builder call itself.
If you have the Web Service Call builder in your model, you can call the specified service by calling the serviceCallName_invoke()
method that the Web Service Call builder adds to the model. The serviceCallName_reply
variable stores the output from the service call.
