In this quick post we are going to explain how to configure and develop a simple BW6 process that only invoke an external Web Service, because one of the comments you told us in the blog.
Ok, first of all we create the project and we define the flow with only an invoke activity and a external reference as we can see in this picture:
1.- The receive and reply task are linked to the SCA service element (big green arrow) in the screen
2.- The invoke activity is linked to the SCA reference (big purple arrow) in the screen.
3.- You must configure the SCA reference as a “Binding Reference – External”
After that, you must configure the external service in the Module Descriptor section inside the subsection “Components”. You must select the reference (purple arrow) and in the Properties section check the subsection Bindings and add a new SOAP Binding Type.
And… That’s all, we can test our service consuming and external service. You must configure the HTTPClient to specify the host and port of the invocation.
We leave you the code of the project so any of you can try it! Download
See you in the next blog post!
