Access Web Services with Scout Eclipse

Axis webservice support is discontinued in favor of the new JAX-WS Integration. Please consider using the JAX-WS tutorial instead

Generate Web Service Classes

In Eclipse Scout it is also pretty easy to access web services. We will use Bing as an example web service. See for more information.

To create the Bing webservice consumer work throught the following steps

  1. Go to the server node of your Scout Project
  2. Expand the tree until you see the node Axis Web Service Consumers
  3. Select New Webservice consumer from the context menu.
  4. Paste the following API key into the WSDL URL field and click Ok. An overview will pop-up which you acknowledge.

Consume the Web Service

In order to consume the web service add a new service operation to your StandardOutlineService with the following signature:
Object[][] getBingTableData(String query) throws ProcessingException

public Object[][] getBingTableData(String query) throws ProcessingException{
    String appId = "BE75364456DF97D980FFDC1420E46B941E7D01CB";
    BingServiceLocator soapClient = new BingServiceLocator();
    SearchRequest request = new SearchRequest();
    SourceType[] sources = {SourceType.Web};
    SearchResponse response;
    try {
      response = soapClient.getBingPort().search(new SearchRequestType1(request)).getParameters();
    catch (Exception e) {
      throw new ProcessingException(e.getMessage(), e);
    WebResult[] result = response.getWeb().getResults();
    Object[][] data = new Object[result.length][3];
    for (int row = 0; row < data.length; row++) {
      data[row][0] = result[row].getUrl();
      data[row][1] = result[row].getTitle();
      data[row][2] = result[row].getDescription();
    return data;

Create the Client Table

Below your CompanyNodePage add a new BingTablePage, extending AbstractPageWithTable. In order to do that, you have to add a new variable to the CompanyNodePage containing the name of the company, which is used for calling the Bing-Service.
