Calling external webservice through Portal Service in Portal Application

174 Views

Hi ,

In the past (NW7.0) it was possible to call external webservices from Portal Applications (eg. JSPDynPage, whatever) by exposing the webservice inside SAP Portal as a "Portal Service". This process is described here: https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/b07992b3-b5af-2a10-9886-affcbeccc4c9

However, in NWDS v.7.1 (part of CE7.1) the "SAP Portal Web Service" Portal Application Object type is NO LONGER available in the "Create Application" wizard application types.

Now, how can I create a Portal Application (JSPDynpage , with a JSP user interface) that calls/consumes webservices (eg. from the SAP ES Workplace) by WSDL.

In the CE7.1 documentation it is described exhaustively how to create static / deployable proxies, but nowhere, I find info on how to embed these web service CLIENT calls in SAP PORTAL applications (eg. a JSPDynPage).

Who can explain me this , now the "classic" way of doing this (through Portal Services) is no longer available in CE7.1 ?

Thank you very much ,
