Web Service Consumer Transformation Output Mapping

Web Service Consumer Transformation Output Mapping

When you view the transformation ports, show the output mapping to view the operation output hierarchy. When you show the output mapping, you can define output groups, define output ports, and map operation output nodes to output ports.
The output mapping includes the following areas:
Operation Output
The
Operation Output
area shows the nodes in the SOAP response message that the web service returns to the Web Service Consumer transformation. The WSDL data object that you use to create the transformation defines the operation output hierarchy.
Ports
Create the transformation output groups and ports in the
Ports
area.
The following figure shows the output mapping for a non-reusable Web Service Consumer transformation:
The Ports tab in the Properties view shows the output mapping. The Operation output area on the left displays the nodes that the web service returns to the transformation. The Ports area on the right displays the transformation output ports that are mapped from the nodes.
After you create output ports, map the nodes from the
Operation Output
area to the ports in the
Ports
area. When you map a node from the operation output to an output port, the location of the node appears in the
Location
column in the
Ports
area.
The Developer tool maps nodes in the first level of the operation output to output ports when you choose to map the first level of the output hierarchy. The Developer tool also creates the ports to perform the mapping. If the first level of the hierarchy contains a multi-occurring parent node with one or more multi-occurring child nodes, the Developer tool does not map the first level of the hierarchy.
You can choose to display the output ports in a hierarchy. Each child group appears under the parent group. You can also choose to view the lines that connect the nodes in the operation output to the output ports.
If the associated WSDL data object is deleted from the repository, the Developer tool retains the location of the operation nodes in the output mapping. When you show the output mapping, the
Ports
area still displays the location of the operation nodes in the
Location
column for the output ports. If you associate another WSDL with the transformation, the Developer tool checks whether each location is valid. The Developer tool clears the location of operation nodes in the
Ports
area of the output mapping if the location is no longer valid.
