How to call a WSDL Service

Hoping to get some helpful hints and a working example atl file.

We have been able to establish the connection between Business Objects Data Services and the WSDL service provider by defining the data store. The functions available as part of the WSDL service have been imported and are available on the datastore.

Only one input parameter is shown when we add the function in a query, however there are multiple parameters that need to be passed in the SOAP request.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Web services description language (WSDL) is a sub-set of XML. It defines the web services interfaces, transport mechanisms, and messages. Data Integrator publishes its jobs in WSDL so they can be called by your external applications. All comments entered into the job descriptions box in the Data Integrator designer graphical user interface are also published with each job in WSDL. The WSDL file generated by Data Integrator includes tags (such as services, bindings, ports, and operations) that support the use of the SOAP protocol. Each tag has names associated with it that Data Integrator provides

    hope this helps

    double click on the function that got imported in the webService datastore, this will dispaly the input and output schema that got imported in DataServices from the WSDL, if the input schema is not as expected, first check the WSDL file and see if the input schema is defined correctly in the WSDL or you can use anyother WS Client tool like Soap UI to see if the input is shown correctly

    can you post the expected input and the input schema that is shown in DS ?
