How to call web service with parameters?

Hi
I'm testing a distributed architecture where parameters are queried from an ODBC database, and a web service called with resulting parameters as input, returning a computed result to the integrated Crystal report. I'm unable to successfully associate the database fields with the web service parameters - the web service is always called with empty parameters. When I call the web service manually from CR by entering parameters, it works as expected. I'm using a sub-report with fields linked to the main report.
Has anyone done something like this / know how to correctly link database fields with web service parameters?
Help much appreciated,
Lance

An update - I solved this problem as follows:
In CR Design view, right-click on sub-report object, select 'Change Subreport Links'. In the links dialog, transfer database fields into 'Field(s) to link to' list. Select a field in 'Field(s) to link to' and in 'Subreport parameter field to use' below, map the field to the appropriate web service parameter field in the dropdown.
Tested with version 11.5.8.826.

  • How to call Web Services (with javascript) in a view load event ?

    Hello to the expert community,
    I'm looking for a piece of javascript code allowing to call Web Services in a view load event ?
    Any ideas will be really appreciated.
    Regards.
    Have a nice week.

    Thank you for your answer, dongmei.
    It seems that the MethodResultTableDataProvider does not return the response of the web service as a value field if the WSDL contains only one result element.
    E.g. from WSDL of the USWeather Web Service which returns theGetWeatherReportResult string:

  • How to call web service using J2SE 1.3?

    Dear All,
    i have developed a web service by jdev 10.1.3 (JAX-RPC with web service security
    enabled).
    i generate the ws proxy (jdev 10.1.3) and run it with wsclient_extended.jar (required JDK 1.4.1 or above??).
    but one of my client say he has to use J2SE 1.3.x (as OS=AIX 4.3 that without J2SE
    1.4.x ), could anyone tell me how can generate ws proxy (with supporting
    library) for jdk 1.3.x?
    if oracle don't have such library / tools, any third party tools / library available?

  • How to call WEB Service From SAP 4.6 c

    Hi Friend,
    How to call WEB Service From SAP 4.6 c Report
    Thanks in advance.

    It is not possible to directly call a web service from SAP 4.6c.
    Indeed, web service enablement is available as from Web AS 6.20, thus as from SAP R/3 4.7
    So as described above, the solution is indeed to make use of PI(XI) for this.

  • How to create web services with complex objects as parameters

    Hi,
    Not sure if this is the right place, but...
    I'm using Netbeans 5.5 and trying to learn web services.
    Creating a simple web service with simple parameters like strings and integers is nice and easy. I'm now trying to take the next step, and create a web service with a more complex schema as a parameter.
    I've tried two approaches, and hit dead ends on both:
    (1) Define my complex schema as an xsd file, and then create a WSDL file. Creating the schema and saving it in my EFB project works fine; when I try to create a new WSDL file, the IDE gives me a button to import external schemas - which is where the problem is: the Browse simply won't find my newly created schema file.
    (2) Define a Java class (in this case, it's a fairly simple example containing a single ArrayList), and then use the IDE to generate a web service from Java. The IDE does this fine, but I now have no idea how to consume or test the web service - I don't know where to look for the WSDL that has presumably been generated, and I'm also a bit iffy over what answers to give the WSDL creator about port names etc.
    Ideally, I'd prefer to get approach 1 to work - can someone point me in the direction of a sensible tutorial for these things?
    (Happy to carry on using Netbeans 5.5 or to revert to Sun Studio Enterprise, which I was playing with before.)
    All help appreciated, Thanks

  • Calling Web Service with SOAP header from BPEL

  • Calling web service with basic authentication from EP "unauthorized"

    Hello,
    I need to call a .NET web service with basic authentication on the IIS from my portal application (no http proxy between portal and IIS). But always I get the following exception:
