EclipseLink/Examples/DBWS/DBWSBasicStoredProcedure

EclipseLink DBWS Service based on Stored Procedure

The use-case for this example is the creation of a Web service that exposes a Stored Procedure (or multiple procedures). From the metadata for a Stored Procedure, it is not possible to determine the structure of the returned data. Therefore, the Simple XML Format schema is used. The EclipseLink DBWS runtime produces an XML document that is simple and 'human-readable'. Any combination of IN, OUT and IN OUT arguments are supported; in addition, procedures in packages that are overloaded - same name, different parameters – are supported.

The following stored procedure will be used for this example:

DROP PROCEDURE TESTECHO;
CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE TESTECHO(T IN VARCHAR2, U OUT VARCHAR2) AS
BEGIN
  U := CONCAT(T, '-test');
END;

The DBWSBuilder utility requires a DBWS configuration file as input.

<?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>
  <procedure
   name="testEcho"
   procedurePattern="TESTECHO"
   isSimpleXMLFormat="true"
 />
</dbws-builder>
prompt > dbwsbuilder.cmd -builderFile dbws-builder.xml -stageDir output_directory -packageAs wls testEcho.war

where

  • dbws-builder.xml is the DBWS build XML file above
  • output_directory is the output directory for the generated files
  • -packageAs specifies the platform on which the web service will be deployed

The generated eclipselink-dbws-schema.xsd file is the schema for the Simple XML format:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsd:schema
 xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
 >
  <xsd:complexType name="simple-xml-format">
    <xsd:sequence>
      <xsd:any minOccurs="0"/>
    </xsd:sequence>
  </xsd:complexType>
</xsd:schema>

The element tags simple-xml-format and simple-xml can be customized by setting the appropriate properties on an sql operation.
