Output Transformation

Output Transformation

The Output transformation represents the output element and header elements in the web service WSDL. The Output transformation creates a SOAP response message from groups of relational data in the operation mapping. A WSDL might describe a large SOAP message hierarchy, but a web service operation might return data for part of the SOAP response message.
The Developer tool creates an Output transformation when you define the web service operation output.
Use the Output transformation
Ports
tab to view the operation output hierarchy, add transformation input ports, and map the input ports to the operation output. The operation output hierarchy defines the SOAP response message hierarchy.
You can map XML data from one string or text input port to the entire SOAP response. When you map XML data to the entire SOAP response, you cannot map ports to nodes in the operation output.
