Invoking Siebel Web Services Using an External System
The Siebel application allows enterprises to publish any business service or business process as a Web Service. This process is also known as creating an inbound Web Service. When the business service or business process is defined, a Siebel administrator navigates to the Administration - Web Services > Inbound Web Services view in the Siebel Web Client, and publishes it as a Web Service. When the business service or business process is published as a Web Service, the administrator generates the Web Service Definition Language (WSDL) document for the newly created Web Service. The resulting WSDL document is consumed by an external application in order to invoke this Web Service.
