Creating a Web Service Client

Using the WSDL for a Web Service, you can also create a Caché client for that service using the Studio SOAP client wizard. The basic steps are:

  1. Create Caché proxy classes for the Web Service.

  2. Use the proxy classes to invoke the Web Service.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Studio SOAP Client Wizard to generate proxy classes for the MVFILE.Services Web Service created in the previous example.

  1. Open Studio and connect to any namespace. Note that you do not need to connect to the namespace containing the Web Service and the multivalue account.

  2. Click Tools—>Add-Ins—>Add-Ins on the Studio menu bar.

  3. On the Add-Ins screen, click SOAP Client Wizard and then click OK.
