SOAP 1.2 for Webservice Client

IBM i - Webservice Client
Die Anbindung unseres DMS (Dealer Management Systems) an das B2B-Portal von Daimler basiert auf dem Austausch von SOAP 1.2 - Dokumenten via Webservice. IBM i unterstützt lediglich SOAP 1.1 im Bereich Webservice Client; insbesondere die Erstellung von Stub-Serviceprogrammen über das Utility "" über QSH schlägt fehl.

Translation to English:

The connection of our DMS (Dealer Management System) to Daimler's B2B portal is based on the exchange of SOAP 1.2 documents via web service. IBM i supports only SOAP 1.1 in the web service client area; in particular, the creation of stub service programs via the "" utility via QSH fails.

Use Case:

Generierung von Stub-Serviceprogrammen über das Utility "" für die verschieden benötigten Webservcie-Methoden welche auf SOAP 1.2 basieren.

Transalation to English:

Generation of stub service programs via the "" utility for the various required web service methods which are based on SOAP 1.2.

    The CAAC has reviewed this Idea and recommends that IBM view this as a high priority requirement that is important to be addressed. With Web Services being so prevalent in the community and their business partners, and SOAP being a part of that, keeping up with newer versions is needed.

    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual Ideas on the broader IBM i community, and has therefore reviewed your Idea.

    IBM agrees with the request and a solution appears to be desirable and feasible. IBM intends to provide a solution. However, IBM's plans may change and no commitment is made that a solution will be provided.

    In the meantime, you can generate any type of requests programmatically via the client transport APIs, discussed in this article[1].
