The web service client built into MarvinSketch allows it to access SOAP RPC services defined by the WSDL descriptor. After selecting the WSDL the application discovers available web services and operations and shows them in a selection three. When the operation is selected, the client will show either the necessary parameters or and error message (if the operation is not supported in the current version of MarvinSketch).

    The following parameter types are supported as input arguments for the call:

    SOAP Java
    xs:string java.lang.String
    xs:int java.lang.Integer
    xs:double java.lang.Double
    xs:float java.lang.Float*
    xs:boolean java.lang.Boolean
    xs:anytype java.lang.Object

    {info} WSDL Float support is not complete, restricted types are also handled, but the restrictions are not taken into account.

    The web services client has some restrictions that a user must follow for automatic parameter discovery: Parameters of a message should be defined in the part named parameters or can be defined as separate parts, where each part locally contains parameter definitions.

    The result of a SOAP RPC call is either a Java Object or an Object[] array. The result is displayed as a primitive type, or as a table if it is a combination of different Java types. If the result is a text represented form of a molecule then it will be displayed as a molecule.
