    Is this the way to make a SOAP client, extract params and response ?

    Igor JStarter Novice

      I'm just trying to understand how to write a SOAP client. If you can: PLEASE REPLY


      Up to know, i think thats the way:


      1. jboss-esb.xml with actions:request-mapper, response-mapper and a soap-wise-client-action


                  <actions mep="OneWay">
                      <action name="request-mapper" class="org.jboss.soa.esb.test_SOAPClient.testMyRequestAction">
                      <action name="soap-wise-client-action" class="org.jboss.soa.esb.actions.soap.wise.SOAPClient">
                          <property name="wsdl" value="" />
                          <property name="SOAPAction" value="retrieveCdrs"/>
                          <property name="EndPointName" value="CdrManagerWSImplPort"/>
                          <property name="SmooksRequestMapper" value="smooks-request-config.xml"/>
                          <property name="SmooksResponseMapper" value="smooks-response-config.xml"/>
                      <action name="response-mapper" class="org.jboss.soa.esb.test_SOAPClient.testResponseAction">


      2. define SmooksRequestMapper and SmooksResponseMapper XMLs


          <resource-config selector="org.jboss.soa.esb.SOAPClient.ExternalObject">
              <param name="beanId">complexObject</param>
              <param name="beanClass">org.jboss.soa.esb.testSOAPClient.generated.ComplexObject</param>
              <param name="bindings">
                  <binding property="stringField" selector="internal text" />
                  <binding property="stringField" selector="internal text" />
                  <binding property="stringField" selector="internal text" />
                  <binding property="stringField" selector="internal text" />
                  <binding property="stringField" selector="internal text" />
                  <binding property="integerField" type="Integer" selector="internal number" />


      3. define InternalObject.class and ExternalObject.class



      public class InternalObject implements Serializable {                 /**          *          */         private static final long serialVersionUID = -8341272228911883415L;                 private String text;         private Integer number;         public String getText() {return text;}         public void setText(String text) {this.text = text;}         public Integer getNumber() {return number;}         public void setNumber(Integer number) {this.number = number;}     }



      InternalObject should have the same parameters as the ws request.

      ExternalObject should have the same parameters as the ws response.


      SmooksRequestMapper and SmooksResponseMapper XMLs must have bindings like the request/response parameters ...


      What's up with the ComplexObject?


      4. Write a test client with the void sendMessage


           ServiceInvoker deliveryAdapter = new ServiceInvoker(                 "TESTServiceCategory", "TEST_SOAPClient");         // Create and populate the request message...         Message requestMessage = MessageFactory.getInstance().getMessage(                 MessageType.JBOSS_XML);         ExternalObject external = new ExternalObject();         InternalObject internal = new InternalObject();         internal.setNumber(new Integer(1));         internal.setText(message);         external.setInternal(internal);         String dateString = "2007-03-07T04:27:00";         Date date = (new SimpleDateFormat(DEFAULT_DATE_FORMAT))                 .parse(dateString);         external.setDate(date);         requestMessage.getBody().add(external);         // Deliver the request message synchronously - timeout after 20         // seconds...         deliveryAdapter.deliverAsync(requestMessage);




      s this everythink what i need to do to call an external ws ?


      Can somebody explain


      Thanks in advance!


      BR, Igor!
