EclipseLink DBWS Service based on Results Sets from custom SQL SELECT statements

The use-case for this example is the creation of a Web service that exposes the results of executing some custom SQL SELECT statements - without exposing the actual SQL. As with the Stored Procedure use-case, there is no metadata to determine the structure of the returned data; therefore, the Simple XML Format schema is used.

The SQL SELECT statements targeted for this service are in the DBWSBuilder builder XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<dbws-builder xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <properties>
    <property name="projectName">testEcho</property>
    ... database properties
  </properties>
  <sql
   name="count"
   simpleXMLFormatTag="aggregate-info"
   xmlTag="count"
   >
    <text><![CDATA[select count(*) from DBWS_CUSTOMSQL]]></text>
  </sql>
  <sql
   name="countAndMaxSalary"
   simpleXMLFormatTag="aggregate-info"
   xmlTag="count-and-max-salary"
   >
    <text><![CDATA[select count(*) as "COUNT", max(SAL) as "MAX-Salary" from DBWS_CUSTOMSQL]]>  </text>
  </sql>
</dbws-builder>
prompt > dbwsbuilder.cmd -builderFile dbws-builder.xml -stageDir output_directory -packageAs wls testEcho.war

SOAP Response

<env:Envelope
 xmlns:env="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
 <env:Body>
   <srvc:countResponse
     xmlns:srvc="urn:sqlService">
     <srvc:result>
       <aggregate-info
         xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
         xsi:type="any">
         <count>
           <COUNT_x0028__x002A__x0029_>14</COUNT_x0028__x002A__x0029_>
         </count>
       </aggregate-info>
   </srvc:result>
 </srvc:countResponse>
 </env:Body>
</env:Envelope>

Note Note the treatment of the resultSet for select count(*). The characters '(', '*' and ')' are not valid for XML element-tags and are replaced by the well-known transformation documented as part of the SQL/X specification (a.k.a. SQL/XML:2003)

Operations based on Stored Procedures or ResultSet's from custom SQL statements return un-structured data. However, it is possible to nest such operations within the context of a Table-based operation. These nested operations can be configured to re-use the schema element type of the parent table and return structured data:

custom SQL as sub-operation of Table-based Web Service

<dbws-builder>
 . . .
<sql name="findEmpByName" isCollection="true" returnType="empType"> <text><![CDATA[select * from EMP where ENAME like ?]]></text> <binding name="ENAME" type="xsd:string"/> </sql>
</dbws-builder>
