The Web Services Hub is the application service in the Informatica domain that is a web service gateway for external clients. The Web Services Hub processes SOAP requests from client applications that access PowerCenter functionality through web services. Web service clients access the PowerCenter Integration Service and PowerCenter Repository Service through the Web Services Hub.
The Web Services Hub hosts the following web services:
Batch web services.
Includes operations to run and monitor the sessions and workflows. Batch web services also include operations that can access repository metadata. Batch web services install with PowerCenter.
Real-time web services.
Workflows enabled as web services that can receive requests and generate responses in SOAP message format. Create real-time web services when you enable PowerCenter workflows as web services.
Use Informatica Administrator to configure and manage the Web Services Hub. Use the Web Services Hub Console to view information about the web service and to download WSDL files to create web service clients.
