Use of web services in scheduling BODS Jobs

Hi all,

I am new to BODS, just a few queries:


1) Which one is better Scheduling BODS jobs via Control-M or Scheduling BODS jobs via Web services ? Can I have the reason for justification?

2) Types of webservices for scheduling BODs jobs.

3) Advantages of using Webservice for scheduling BODS jobs.

Any sample doc on BODS integration with web services will be of great help.


Thanks,

Venkat

    1) Which one is better Scheduling BODS jobs via Control-M or Scheduling BODS jobs via Web services ? Can I have the reason for justification?

    I would suggest you to use the scheduler which comes along with BODS. Control-M is best for scheduling SAP batch jobs.

    2) Types of webservices for scheduling BODS jobs.

    Data Services Management console is the web application used for scheduling and managing jobs


    3) Advantages of using Webservice for scheduling BODS jobs.

    Refer to below link

    If you want to use third party applications like Control M then you can refer below

      Hi Arun,

      Thank you so much for the information. Currently, I want to work with web services and trigger it through them only. For better understanding I want to prepare PPT on Scheduling BODS jobs through web services. Can I have any extra data regarding it?

      Regards,

      Venkat

    Hi Rama,

    We tried to use the same we prepared the below doc from our team.

    http://scn.sap.com/community/soa/blog/2014/07/30/publishing-a-bods-batch-job-as-a-web-services-using-custom-wsdl-labels

    If you are not required to execute from external system like java or .net dont go for webservice calls

    if it has to invoke by external system you can use this.

    if you want to execute from windows task manager as service also you can do it by scheduling the bat file.

    export the job to .bat file and in the windows service scheduler you can call that file to execute in regular intervel.

    Based on the requirement and you can decide that.

    Thanks,

    Sreenivas

    • hi rama,

      Web services is the concept of sharing the technology between multiple systems over web.

      scheduling is the concept of executing some exe or job repeatedly in same system without any changes and without any manual intervention.

      so check your requirement

      if you want to share across web to multiple systems go with web services.

      if you want to get it executed in same system or server go for scheduling the job.

      Thanks,

      Sreenivas
