By Oliver Steinmeier-Oracle on Jul 24, 2014
The following is a guest post from Shaun Kaneshiro, an Applications Architect in the Fusion Applications Technical Architecture team at Oracle. She is also the primary author of the new book recently released by our documentation team.
Oracle Fusion Applications provides web services as one of many mechanisms to integrate with and extend Oracle Fusion Applications in Oracle Applications Cloud Services. The web services are typically based on a business objects and allow the caller to perform operations on the business objects. As an example, the Opportunity Service can be used to perform a find operation to identify opportunities meeting a search criteria or to perform an update to a field, like a quantity on a particular revenue item, on an opportunity.
Oracle Cloud, Getting Started with Web Services, released earlier this month, provides general information about SOAP web services in Oracle Fusion Applications in Oracle Applications Cloud Services. It covers topics ranging from understanding the basics of the service artifacts and service operation usage, to discovering the services, and deriving the service endpoint.
The road map in the first chapter provides an excellent launching point for the first time reader:

It starts with reviewing the Use Cases for Implementing Partner Applications for Oracle Sales Cloud guide which covers common integration use cases and implementation steps. Then directs the to relevant tasks in Getting Started with Web Services document.
- General Tasks for Web Services: This section directs the reader to the relevant section in the document to learn about and accomplish a particular task.
