Generating Web Service SOAP Messages Overview

Generating Web Service SOAP Messages Overview

The Data Integration Service generates XML data from groups of input data when it generates a SOAP message. When you create a Web Service Consumer transformation, a web service Output transformation, or a Fault transformation, you configure which input ports to map to the SOAP message hierarchy.
To configure a transformation to generate a SOAP message, create groups of input ports and map each group to a group in the SOAP message hierarchy. A WSDL or schema defines the structure of the SOAP message.
You can configure groups of data in the SOAP message from denormalized input data. You can also pivot multiple-occurring input data to multiple-occurring nodes in the SOAP message.
You can map data to derived types, anyType elements, or substitution groups in a SOAP message. You must choose which types can occur in the SOAP message when you define a transformation. The types that you choose determine the input ports that you need to create.
When you view the SOAP message hierarchy in the Developer tool, the hierarchy contains keys. The keys do not appear in the SOAP message. The Data Integration Service uses keys to define parent-child relationships between groups in the SOAP message. To configure key values, map input data to keys in the SOAP message.
