    Default Pentaho Web Services support

    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

    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:
    The following URL will launch the HelloWorld Action Sequence:


    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.
