ERP 2.50:Developers Guide/Examples/SOAP WebService

ERP 2.50:Developers Guide

Index

Introduction

The way to interact from an external application with Openbravo ERP is through WebServices. Openbravo provides a set of services that allows you to perform actions such as: Query Business Partner information, upload orders, etc. This methods are exposed as SOAP WebServices.

SOAP is a lightweight protocol for exchanging structured information in a decentralized, distributed environment. It is an XML based protocol that consists of three parts: an envelope that defines a framework for describing what is in a message and how to process it, a set of encoding rules for expressing instances of application-defined datatypes, and a convention for representing remote procedure calls and responses [1]

Objective

The objective of this document is explain the Openbravo implementation of the current SOAP WebServices

Implementation

Openbravo ERP uses Apache Axis as framework to build the SOAP Webservices. The implementation is simple: You have an Interface that defines which are the available methods, a Class that implements the Interface and available methods. A set of Classes (POJOs) used to transport information and a WSDD [2] file that describes the webservice.

Java

POJOS

Under the org.openbravo.erpCommon.ws.externalSales package you'll find several Java classes (see the list below). This classes are simple POJOs, used to transport information.

getProductsCatalog
 
  public Product[] getProductsCatalog(String ClientID, String organizationId, String salesChannel,

The methods receives a Client, Organization, Sales Channel, Username and Password.

Bulbgraph.png   The password should be sent encrypted, but is transported as plain text. A SSL should be used to secure your service
 
     if (!access(username, password)) {

If the combination username/password is not valid, or has no access to the service the process is finished.

 
      // Select
      ExternalSalesProductData[] data = ExternalSalesProductData.select(pool, ClientID,
          salesChannel, organizationId);

Using SQLC generated class (ExternalSalesProductData) we get all the products for this combination. Client, Sales Channel an Organization. Note that the pool parameter is a member of the class already initialized in the constructor.

 
      if (data != null && data.length > 0) {
        int i = 0;
        // Part of the code removed
        Product[] products = new Product[data.length];
 
        while (i < data.length) {
          // Part of the code removed
          products[i] = new Product();

If data is not empty, we iterate trough the array (data) creating a new Product object and setting all the values for each member of Product.

 
        return products;

We return the products array.

 
      } else if (data != null && data.length == 0) {
        // Part of the code removed
        return new Product[0];

If data is empty, a blank product is returned.

External Sales definition

 
 <service name="ExternalSales" provider="java:RPC">

Defines the name of the service. The service will be accessed through this name e.g. http://localhost:8880/openbravo/services/ExternalSales

 
 <parameter name="className" value="org.openbravo.erpCommon.ws.externalSales.ExternalSalesImpl"/>

Defines the class that implements the service

 
 <parameter name="allowedMethods" value="*"/>

Defines which methods of the class are allowed

 
 <beanMapping qname="myNS:Product"  xmlns:myNS="/services/ExternalSales" languageSpecificType="java:org.openbravo.erpCommon.ws.externalSales.Product"/>

For each POJO, we have an beanMapping with the name, and the java class. More information on Apache Axis documentation.
