I’m struggling with what the soap execute is doing based on the contents of the generated soap template and apache velocity statements therein. Apologies in advance for any dumb questions, still new to this and my first crack at the apache veloicty statements.
Some of this may be rubber ducking, but I’ll post any answers I find. Here goes:
- My understanding is that the mapper values push to the template, which works with the snap to generate the soap payload for the designated web service. How does the template generate values exactly? And is there a way that I can see the exact payload in xml (not in json)?
Q2. Answered/ Can I hard code values? (or do I need to do all that in the mapper) For example, the type and value here:
<ns0:ID ns0:type=“Student_Course_Section_ID”>COURSE_SECTION_AAS202-01201201</ns0:ID> ANSWER: YES
- Is there a debugger of any kind for the soap generation or apache velocity statements being used?
Q4. Answered Could I just write out a complete xml with all data elements and put it in the template, submit the soap and have it work with no mapper? ANSWER: YES, I tested this and was able to hardcode all values and submit without an issue for a simple get web service.
Q5. Can I use a new created variable from the mapper, instead of what comes in from the schema. For example $MyVar instead of the mapped ANSWER: YES
