19.2 Getting Started

This section outlines the steps necessary for:

19.2.1 Invoking the RWWebService Servlet

To invoke the RWWebService servlet:

  1. Start a Oracle WebLogic Server instance, where the Oracle Reports instance resides.

  2. Enter the following URL in the address field of your browser: http://yourwebserver:port/reports/rwwebservice

    This takes you to the RWWebService endpoint. The RWWebService endpoint page enables you to do the following:

    1. View the Oracle Reports Web service WSDL.

    2. Run any RWWebService command using a Web based UI.

19.2.2 Viewing the WSDL

The Web Service Description Language (WSDL) is an XML format for describing available services as a set of endpoints operating on messages containing either document-oriented or procedure-oriented information. The operations and messages are described abstractly, and then bound to a concrete network protocol and message format to define an endpoint.

Note:

Oracle Reports Web service does not support dynamic discovery of the WSDL by publishing to the Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) server.

  1. Click the WSDL link on the RWWebService Web page to view the Oracle Reports Web service's WSDL document.

    Note:

    Use Internet Explorer to view the WSDL XML output.

  2. The last entry in the WSDL is the service description and contains the location of the WebService:

    <soap:address location="http://yourwebserver:8888/reports/rwwebservice" />

Description of Figure 19-1 follows

Ensure that the URL and port number defined, http://yourwebserver:port/reports/rwwebservice, is correct.

Note:

The hostname specified should be the hostname where the Oracle WebLogic Server instance is running and not where the Reports Server is running.
