The Details tab page of the Web Services (Provider) window contains deployment information. This information is subject to change at deployment time, it is displayed here to ease the development process.

In the Web Services (Provider) window, you need to define some additional settings to access the Rules Service:

· Application.

The USoft application on which the SQL statement is executed. If the Rules Service is not started for the application, the client application receives an error message.

· User/Password.

The credentials used by a client application to access the Rules Service. You can encrypt these credentials. For more information, refer to Help topic: Using an Encrypted Password, in the Authorizer Help.

In the Authorizer, you can restrict or fine-tune table access for this user. Especially for tables used in the SQL statement of a web service method.

· Host Name.

The computer name where the Rules Service runs.

· Port Number.

The port that the Rules Service uses to communicate with client applications.

· Access Point File.

The physical location where the ASP server page, generated by USoft, is created.

· Access point URL.

The URL used by a client application to access the web service.

· WSDL File.

The physical location on the disk where the WDSL file, generated by USoft, is created.


The URL used by the client application to access the WSDL file.

· Target Namespace.

The namespace used for the WSDL file. By default, this is the same as WSDL URL.


USoft supports both both SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2 protocols for web service providers. Note, however, that SOAP 1.2 is only supported for document oriented methods. Depending upon the version of the SOAP request, the name of the ASP server page specifed by the Access Point File/URL settings above will have one of the following formats:

· <service name>.asp is the entry point for SOAP 1.1 requests.


· <service name>_soap12.asp is the entry point for SOAP 1.2 requests.
