Creating ABL Clients to Consume OpenEdge SOAP Web Services : Invoking OpenEdge SOAP Web Service Operations from ABL : Managing complex data

Managing complex data

Wherever you encounter complex data, for a Web service, you have these basic options for accessing and managing the data, depending on the documentation generated by the WSDL Analyzer:
*As an ABL temp-table or ProDataSet
*As a serialized XML string
*As individual simple data types
For more information on how the Analyzer determines the options you can use, see Analyzing complex data.
Note: The examples in this section are not available on the Documentation and Samples (doc_samples) directory of the OpenEdge product DVD or Progress Documentation Web site.
