Invoking an existing Web service is easy with Oracle Service Architecture Leveraging Tuxedo (SALT), a standards-based, bi-directional Web Services gateway.
Oracle SALT provides reliable, transparent access to existing Oracle Tuxedo service as standard Web services. Oracle Tuxedo applications can also call external Web services as Tuxedo services with the gateway transforming the call using SOAP over HTTP protocol. This provides widespread access to applications using Web services without having to use Web services specific coding. It also provides interoperability among distributed applications that span diverse hardware and software platforms.
