The Service Operation builder adds an operation to a service created with the Service Definition builder.
Use this builder to create a service with one or more operations. You can use this service from another IBM® WebSphere® Portlet Factory model using lightweight Java execution, or make it available to other applications by WSDL and SOAP. The operation typically invokes some data access functionality available in the model. Data access is usually provided by back end integration builders (such as SAP function and SQL call) and can also be provided by a linked Java object or a data-returning method.
For an example of service provider and consumer models, see the SimpleServiceProvider and SimpleServiceConsumer models that are included in the Tutorials and Samples Applications feature set. Once this feature set is installed, open the WEB-INF/models/samples/gettingstarted/
folder, to access these models.
You can use this builder and the Lookup Table builder to add caching to your model.
