I using Pentaho demo v1.2-RC3.
I need to call Pentaho actions externally, using Web Services interface. Then, I view Pentaho Documentation, but only reference is ServiceAction servlet, that isn't an web service. I also search for wsdl file, nothing.
Could you help me? Could you an example to use Web Service call.

Thanks in advance
Angela

From my understanding, ServiceAction is called a "web service" because it operates over HTTP and returns a SOAP response. I am not aware of an associated WSDL file.

From the Pentaho wiki (http://wiki.pentaho.org/):
The following URL will launch the HelloWorld Action Sequence:

http://localhost:8080/pentaho/ServiceAction?solution=samples&path=getting-started&action=HelloWorld.xaction

In this case, the result returned is an XML SOAP Response. The following parameters can be entered on the URL:

solution, path, action* - The location of the Action Sequence document to load.
instance_id* - The instance Id of a previous Runtime Context
debug* - set to "true" in order to have debug information written to the execution log.
