Prerequisites for Consuming Services

To consume services you must set properties in the Service Configuration component as follows:

To consume WSDL from a file, you must set the PS_FILEDIR environment variable on the machine on which the application server resides. If you do not set this variable and attempt to consume WSDL from a file, you will receive an error that the WSDL cannot be parsed.

See Understanding Setting PS_FILEDIR and PS_SERVDIR Environment Variables.

Before consuming services evaluate your security requirements.
