Testing the Web Service Methods from the Terminal

We can test the Web service methods from terminal. To do this we will use its WSDL to generate a client. Here are the steps:

  1. Use the InterSystems launcher to open the Terminal. You can use whichever namespace that you prefer.

  2. Create and instance of %SOAP.WSDL.ReaderOpens in a new tab and use its Process method together with the WSDL url of the service to generate the client.

    USER>Set url="http://localhost:57772/csp/user/CInfo.WebService.CLS?WSDL=1"
    USER>Set reader = ##class(%SOAP.WSDL.Reader).%New()
    USER>Write reader.Process(url)

  3. Create an instance of the client.

    USER>Set client = ##class(CompanyInfo.CompanyInfoSoap).%New()
  4. Execute the CreateCompanies method to populate the database with Company instances.

    USER>Write client.CreateCompanies(1000)
  5. Next, test GetCompanyInfo. You must pass a valid ID of a company to the method. It is likely that “1” is valid.

    USER>Set company = client.GetCompanyInfo(1)
    USER>Write company.Name
    OptiTech LLC.
    USER>Write company.Mission
    Spearheading the next generation of nano-instrumentation technologies for the Fortune 50
    USER>Write company.PrimaryAddress.City
