Web Service

Web services are services that provide functionality and data via the internet. Similarly to a search engine, queries will be sent from a sender, which in this case is not a person, rather a software program. The web service returns the results to the program querying it. Web services can be provided for use either internally or externally to the company.

If one wishes to, for example, find the name of a bank based on a routing code, a web service can determine and return the desired data using an operation. The operations are described using WSDL (Web Services Description Language) files. The exchange of information takes place via an exchange of XML files.

In order to use a web service, the URL with which the web service is identified must be known. Additionally, special software is required to interpret the information that is delivered.

With Intrexx, web service providers can be consumed, as well as individual web services offered, without requiring additional programming efforts.

The current version of Intrexx exclusively supports web services that are specified under the WSI Basic Profile Version 1.1. Here you can find information on this topic:

In order to use a web service in the portal, it must first be registered in the module Integration. The module Integration can be reached via the modules bar of the Portal Manager. Here you find the functions Consume Data and Provide Data. The Consume subheading allows for WSDL descriptions to be loaded.

Exporting and Importing a Web Service

In the area Consume Data web services can be exported via the context menu item Export Web Services or via the main menu item Web Services / Export Web Services. Web Services can be imported via the menu item Web Services / New Web Service in the area Consume Data.
