Should I look into FUSE for this scenario.
We have a critical application calling a number of operations on the same web service, because of our application software the calls are unnecsessary slow. Can I get help from for instance FUSE Message Broker or the ESB?
This is an example of what we do:
1) Connect to web service
2) Invoke an AUTHENTICATE operation, receive a session in the soap header
3) Using the same session: invoke a SEARCH operation, receive an xml with answers.
4) Using the same session: invoke a SIGNOUT operation.
Yeah that should be possible. You would not to pass in the same session on the subsequent calls to the webservice.
For webservices there is Apache CXF which we have documentation here
