1. Introduction

The BIRT Web Services Data Source is an ODA extension that enables BIRT (and other Eclipse DTP/ODA enabled application) to query SOAP-based web services and use the query response as a source of reporting data.

The Web Services ODA (WS-ODA) extension is built on top of the DTP/XML data source (XML-ODA). The WS-ODA driver reuses XML-ODA driver’s XML to relational data mapping facility to handle the tabular conversion (“flattening”) of SOAP response data. The WS-ODA driver therefore has a dependency on the XML-ODA driver.
