Creating OpenEdge SOAP Web Services : Exposing AppServer Applications as OpenEdge SOAP Web Services : Defining and deploying a Web service definition

Defining and deploying a Web service definition

After you have built and compiled the ABL r-code for the AppServer application, you use ProxyGen to assemble a definition of your Web service. That definition enables you to define WSA instances to host your Web service and to generate a WSDL file that end users can use to build clients for your Web service.
Creating Web service definitions follows the Open Client model. For instructions on creating Web service definitions, see the chapter on generating proxies and Web service definitions in OpenEdge Development: Open Client Introduction and Programming. For more information on working with ProxyGen, see the online help.
Once you have a definition for your OpenEdge Web service, you need to deploy it to a Web Service Adapter (WSA) instance for testing. Building Clients for OpenEdge SOAP Web services discusses how to create clients to test your Web service.
