Web Services - WSDL doubt.

Hi all,

I’m sorry to repeat this subject again, but I continue with some doubts…

I read almost SDN web logs about web services. All they teach, how to configure and develop a simple web services… but the steps to create a web service connection between XI, continues a little bit confused to me…

To clarify my objective, look at this scenario: With an iview with an upload form, I want to upload an xml file to XI trough web service (soap adapter). NW Portal <-> (web services) <-> XI.

I don’t have sure what I need to do to configure a scenario like that. Tell me if I’m correct: First I need to create an outbound interface to connect Portal via web services to XI, with a soap adapter?

In the web logs that I’m read, (/people/siva.maranani/blog/2005/09/03/invoke-webservices-using-sapxi) I need to download wsdl files… but who make these wsdl files? I need to make it before configure my soap adapter?

I don’t understand what is the propose of wsdl files and what is used for!!! I never worked with web services… I’m come from ABAP programming and I’m trying to do the first steps in web technologies. So, I’m sorry if said some mistakes…

Please, can anybody clarify my doubts? Documentation to help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Ricardo.

    Hi Ricardo,

    >>>I don’t have sure what I need to do to configure a scenario like that. Tell me if I’m correct: First I need to create an outbound interface to connect Portal via web services to XI, with a soap adapter?

    yes that's what you have to do:

    1. create an outbound interface

    2. publish a web service based on this interface (sender SOAP adapter)

    >>>In the web logs that I’m read, (/people/siva.maranani/blog/2005/09/03/invoke-webservices-using-sapxi) I need to download wsdl files… but who make these wsdl files? I need to make it before configure my soap adapter?

    you need to download wsld file if you want to call

    a web service <b>from</b> XI, since you only want to do Portal -> xi and not XI -> web service then you <b>don't</b> need any

    wsld files

    >>>but who make these wsdl files?

    you will, once you'll define your web service

    on the XI - your Portal iview will use this file
