Web Services Data Source

This project aims to provide Web Services Data Source ODA implementation for BIRT


Specification Lead

Gary Xue


Description

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.
