Based on the customer feedback in the latest version of Advanced ETL Processor we have introduced support for the web services
What are web services?
The simplest way to describe it as a way of communicating with the web servers. The application sends a request to the webserver using XML and receives back a reply as XML. One of the examples would be converting Fahrenheit to Celsius or getting the 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 a body length
HTTP Request Body
During execution, #value# is replaced with temperature
Web Service URL
Note: There is a detailed example in the default repository
