1275377 - Configuring a custom web service with multiple methods in xcelsius

Symptom

When configuring a Web Service connection for a WSDL URL containing more than one method, everytime the method is chaanged from the dropdown menu, all Excel bindings that were configured in another method are lost.

Reproducing the Issue

  • Import a WSDL URL into Xcelsius 2008 which contains more than one method
  • Configure one method by binding the Input/Output Values to Excel
  • Once done with 1st method, select another method from the dropdown menu and configure
  • Once down with 2nd method, select the 1st method - all bindings should be lost

Environment:

Xcelsius 2008 Engage Server/Enterprise

Cause

Xcelsius can only utilize ONE method at a time for a WSDL URL containing multiple methods.  If the method is changed, it will be as if creating the bindings for the first time (all previous configurations will be lost once a method is changed).

Resolution

Each WSDL 'method' will have to be configured seperately and have a seperate connection in the Data Manager. 

 'X' amount of methods will be equivalent to 'X' amount of Web Service Connections in the Data Manager.
