    Well, you do get output. The http client is just that, a http client (there's a WSDL step under the experimental category, but YMMV).

    First thing I would check is what you get back from the service when you execute the URL Kettle executes, it's in the logs (at rowlevel)... it's something like in your case

    Under the experimental category in transformations there's a WSDL step, but as the name of the category suggests YMMV.

    Arrow Soap Call

    Hi all,
    The Http client in Kettle launch request like don't make a SOAP call.

    The WSL step (Web Services Lookup ) as it name suggests "just" display all the methods available via a given webservice.
    I think it's a first step.

    See the attached picture (Your url :

    We need step that make a real SOAP call (maybe by using AXIS libs).
    Maybe someone is already working on it.

    Take care
