How to Consume external webservice..??


Hi Freinds,

I am first time trying my hands on webservices in webdynpro java.

I am trying to use webservice. When i test this URL in WS Navigator

It gives me following error :-

Cannot download WSDL from It is not allowed to access this service. If you believe you should be able to, please contact your system administrator

I have also tried by downloading in local system and then importing this WSDL file. I got this webservices into Destination property of visual administrator,. I dont whthter this is rite step or not. I think it should come in WSNavigator also know..??

I have used RFC in java webdynpro. But i dont have much knowledge on webservices.

I have certain set of question on web services, it would be very helpful if some one could guide me on this ?

1. Do we need to do some configuration on portal to access the external webservices?

2. Any configuration to be done in VA..??

3. How to deploy or use the external webservice in SAP portal?

4. I had read about HTTP proxy configuration, when and why these configuation is required..??

i also tried the webdynpro tutorial for webservices, but still getting the same error.

Also if some one could good give some steps by steps methos for this.
