XI is Web-Service ready. Any simple integration developed in XI could be exposed as Web service easily. Web services send SOAP requests and the response is given in SOAP format. XI uses SOAP- sender adapter to consume SOAP message and uses SOAP receiver adapter to give an SOAP request out of XI. This particular blog will give an overview on
how a XI exposed Web Service could be tested using the WSDL.
As a part of Netweaver Labs @ Satyam, several challenging prototypes were developed and one such challenge was to expose the XI scenario as a WebService and testing the same. When we started working on this we had several challenges one such challenge was to check the functionality of the WebService exposed by XI.
