EclipseLink/Examples/DBWS/DBWSOverloadStoredProcedure


{NB - this capability is available starting in DBWS version 2.3}

EclipseLink DBWS Service based on an overloaded PL/SQL Stored Procedure

The use-case for this example is the creation of a Web service that exposes a PL/SQL 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 PL/SQL stored procedures will be used for this example:
CREATE PROCEDURE P(SIMPLARRAY IN TBL1, FOO IN VARCHAR2) AS
BEGIN
  // do something
END P;

CREATE PROCEDURE P(SIMPLARRAY IN TBL1, FOO IN VARCHAR2, BAR IN VARCHAR2) AS
BEGIN
  // do something
END P;
Type TBL1 is defined in PL/SQL Package SOMEPACKAGE as follows:
CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE SOMEPACKAGE AS
  TYPE TBL1 IS TABLE OF VARCHAR2(111) INDEX BY BINARY_INTEGER;
  PROCEDURE P(SIMPLARRAY IN TBL1, FOO IN VARCHAR2);
  PROCEDURE P(SIMPLARRAY IN TBL1, FOO IN VARCHAR2, BAR IN VARCHAR2);
END SOMEPACKAGE;

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">testOverloadedProcedure</property>
    ... database properties
  </properties>
  <plsql-procedure
   name="overloadedProcedure"
   catalogPattern="SOMEPACKAGE"
   procedurePattern="P"
 />
</dbws-builder>
prompt > dbwsbuilder.cmd -builderFile dbws-builder.xml -stageDir output_directory -packageAs wls testEcho.war

where

  • dbws-builder.xml is the DBWS builder 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
When generating queries and the WSDL when overloaded procedures are present, an index is used to uniquely identify each procedure. The index starts at 1, and incremented for each overloaded procedure. The generated eclipselink-dbws.wsdl for this example follows.  :
