When using a Data Connector applet with a web service interface, the applet is sometimes referred to as a Web Service Data Connector or WSDC.
Web Service is an interface available to Data Connector applets. Using the Web Service interface in a Data Connector, you can get data from and send data to an external web service. For more information about a Data Connector applet, see Data Connector applet.
When you use a Data Connector applet to exchange data with a web service, you can either define the web service interaction using XML yourself or use a template.
For information about defining the web service interaction using XML, see Defining a web service interaction using XML to retrieve data from and send data to a Web Service.
For information about using a template, see Using a template to retrieve data from and send data to a Web Service.
