    CAS calling external web services

    Heiko Mock



      I am just wondering what I have to implement to make calls to external web services providing data, which should be stored by CAS in a Record Store.


      Could somebody give me some hints?

      I think it should be different then starting crawls on documents or websites.


      Any help is appreciated.


      Thanks and regards,

          What is the format of data you get from the web-service?

          I am not aware of a straight forward (out of the box) way of getting webservice data into CAS. You have two options:

          ~ add an extra intermediate step, like getting the webservice data into a DB or storing the response as a XML file, then pointing your CAS to that intermediate source.

          ~ write java code using the Endeca API's to get data from web-service and write it into a record store.
