Warehouse Builder 11gR2: RESTful Web Services in OWB
By antonio romero on Oct 22, 2010
Warehouse Builder 11gR2 added built-in support for consuming SOAP-based web services in process flows. However, RESTful web services are also widely used, especially on the open Internet, and some users may need access to them.
Our inventive community member Suraj Bang has developed a model for calling RESTful web services from inside OWB code template mappings. In this example, specifically, he uses Yahoo!’s geocoding Web service to augment address records with latitudes and longitudes, but the code template and the technique generalize for use with other Web services.
You can read up on the details here. Kudos once again to Suraj, who spoke at OpenWorld on his initial successes with code template technology in OWB.
