You can use Web Service Provider activity to publish your web services so that Web Service Consumers can access it. Once you publish a Web Service Provider activity, it will create a WSDL file, which will be available to Adeptia Suite users. The user can then use this WSDL to invoke the Web Service.

From Adeptia Suite 6.1 onward, you will get EasyWSDL parser for Web Service Provider activity. This EasyWSDL parser has the following additional benefits:

By default, Adeptia Suite will use EasyWSDL parser. However, WSDL4j parser is still there for backward compatibility. To use the WSDL4j parser, you need to change the abpm.webservice.provider.wsdlparser.iswsdl4j to true. For more details, refer to Configuring Adeptia Suite to use WSDL4j Parser section. 

Following are the key points that you should keep in mind while using WS Provider feature:

  • If you create any WS Provider activity using WSDL4j parser then Adeptia Suite will always use that parser to edit the activity irrespective of the WSDL parser that is currently configured on Adeptia Suite.
  • Similarly, if you create any WS Provider activity using EasyWSDL parser then Adeptia Suite will always use that parser to edit the activity irrespective of the WSDL parser that is currently configured on Adeptia Suite.
