Based on the customer feedback in the latest version of Advanced ETL Processor we have introduced support for the web services

What are the web services.

The simplest way to describe it as a way of communicating with the web servers. The application sends a request to the web server using XML and receives back a reply as XML. One of the examples would be converting Fahrenheit to Celsius or getting current currency exchange rate. A lot of modern websites such as Ebay, Amazon are using web services as a standard API for developers.

Converting Fahrenheit to Celsius

In order to communicate with temperature conversion web service we need to build HTTP Request Header and HTTP Request Body dynamically, There are several ways of doing it the easiest way is to use "In Place Replace transformation" function

Generating HTTP Request Header



During execution #value# is replaced with body length

HTTP Request Body



During execution #value# is replaced with temperature

Web Service URLProperties



 Note: There is a detailed example in the default repository




We have a scenario where we have a large datasource that is currently used to produce a single QVW. What we would like to do is produce a number of smaller QVWs using e.g. Publisher - however, we would like to define the reload schedule and destination folders that these smaller QVWs end up in from an external MySQL table (or config file or similar), rather than through the Publisher GUI. Has anyone done anything similar, or got any recommendations on how to approach this?
