Fusion Applications provides Web services that allow external systems to
integrate with it. There are two types of services:
ADF services and composite services. ADF services are created for a
logical business object and provide functionality to access and
manipulate these objects. The composite services are mostly process
oriented and provide an orchestration of multiple steps.
Information about the web services provided by Fusion Applications is hosted in Oracle Enterprise Repository (OER). The information provided by OER can be used to understand the functionality provided by the service and how the service can be called.
This series of articles describes how one can invoke SOAP web services provided by Fusion Applications using various technologies. In this article we will cover how to invoke a Fusion Application web service using Service Reference for Visual Basic.
Application Web Services with errors such as: "Unable to import WebService/Schema. Unable to import binding 'LocationServiceSoapHttp' from namespace 'http://xmlns.oracle.com/apps/hcm/locations/locationServiceV2/'. Unable to import operation 'updateLocationTranslation'. The datatype 'http://xmlns.oracle.com/apps/hcm/locations/flex/locationextraInfoeff/category/:j_LocationEitCategory' is missing.";These are commonly due to cyclic references in the service definition. The specification is vague on whether this is allowed or not and as such it's caused by different interpretation of the standard by the different technologies. The issue does not exist with Service Reference integration so the recommendation is to always use Service References for integration.
