Calling Public Web Service using Talend Open Studio

Calling Public Web Service using Talend Open Studio:

Talend Open Studio for Data Integration Version: 6.3.1
Java Compiler: 1.7
OS: Windows 8

This article will walk through the following steps to consume Public Web service in talend :

1. Get the public WSDL which is ready to consume
2. Add Talend components to Designer
3. Update the properties for parameterised request
4. Get the response, parse it and print it in console

This article will not cover the installation and setup of Talend Open Studio. The assumption is talend already installed and is working correctly. For details on how to install and configure Talend Open Studio see this post.

In the previous post we saw how to connect to Amazon S3 and upload a file from local instance to S3 buckets. Then we downloaded the same file back to the local directory. Today we will see how to consume  public web service, for demonstration we need some WSDL file. If you will google you will find tens of web service freely available. I will be using below link to get the city names based on country.

Copy paste the URL in your browser to see all the methods avaiable.

Create a new project as job_Call_Public_Webservice under Job Designs in repository explorer. Drag tFixedFlowInput, tFlowToIterate, tWebServiceInput, tExtractXMLField and tLogRow to the design workspace. Either you search them in the palette or start typing directly in the design workspace, a drop down will be popped up immediately. This is how it looks like in my studio. Pay attention to the connectors.



Now we will configure the properties of each component. We will pass “India” as the parameter to the request. To add the column name click on Edit Schema and add a field as shown below.


Now select Use Inline Radio Button and click on add button to provide input. Since we can provide multiple values, we will be using tFlowIterate to iterate each of the values.



Okay now lets set the properties for tWebServiceInput. First of all click on edit schema and add one field of String type. This will be used as output to next component.


Then provide the WSDL link and method name. Since we need one input use below substitution code to get the fixed value from previous component.



Next we will configure tExtractXMLField. In similar fashion like we did for previous step click on edit schema and two column to the right side.


Then set the properties as shown below.


We are almost done. In the tLogRow select the mode as table. Thats it.

Press F6 to build and execute the job. Here is the output from console. If you want you can write the same to Oracle table using tOracleOut component.

  1. Hi, Thanks for the great post. I have a question, Do you know how to prevent hard messages at tSoap component. I have followed your instructions, but I use tSoap instead of tWebServiceInput. Thanks in advance.

  2. hi, I trying to create the same way like what you did, but there is error in tWebServiceInput. Can you give me another example?

    Thank you
