Application Composer Series: Custom Object Web Services Dynamic XSD's
By Richard Bingham-Oracle on Jun 16, 2014
Extending from our recent Introduction To Custom Object Webservices post, we've seen a few questions around how to get the WDSL and current XSD files for using web services when interacting with customizations. The answer is actually rather simple, however it is worth explicitly explaining.
All WDSL files remain static, except between upgrades when a changed version may be released. Oracle Enterprise Repository (OER) lists all records by release number, providing the details of each web service operation and the related data objects.
For XSD files, new custom fields added to your standard objects that extend the object definition means the XSD gets automatically regenerated upon request. This is illustrated in the embedded video below from our YouTube channel.
Obviously being this flexible to support customization also requires effective management and control, to ensure the rapid implementation of changes does not affect any existing integrations.
