Using curl to drive a SOAP-based web service

As part of some tinkering (!) with IBM BPM 8.6, specifically to test a SOAP-based Web Service, as exposed ( exported ) by a SCA module, I wanted to quickly test the service without needing to start/use SoapUI each and every time.

Thankfully, there's a curl for that …

I'd checked the SCA Module to check the Endpoint Address of the SCA module: -


and then hit the ?wsdl action to pull back the WSDL itself: -


This auto-expands to this URL: -


I then used SoapUI one time only to hit this expanded URL, to get a view on the input XML: -


I then created an XML file that represented the input to the Web Service: -

canarySoap.xml

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:cal="http://Canary/callTheCanary">
   <soapenv:Header/>
   <soapenv:Body>
      <cal:callTheCanary>
         <yourName>Dave Hay</yourName>
      </cal:callTheCanary>
   </soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>

and then worked out ( thanks to Google ) how to invoke it using curl: -

curl --insecure --header "Content-Type: text/xml;charset=UTF-8" --header "SOAPAction:urn:callTheCanary" --data @canarySoap.xml https://bpmdb.uk.ibm.com:9443/CanaryWeb/sca/callTheCanary

Now I can hit the service as often as I like, and see the response in the BPM box's SystemOut.log: -

tail -f /opt/ibm/WebSphereProfiles/AppSrv01/logs/AppClusterMember1/SystemOut.log

IBM DB2, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the IBM Mainframe
Thu, Nov 16th 2017 5:54p   Dave Hay
I'm running through the process to deploy IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) 8.6 onto an IBM mainframe ….This is something that I've done a number of times before, since I first joined the (then) IBM Software Services for WebSphere team in late 2012.In essence, although the underlying hardware is the IBM z platform ( also known as LinuxOne in this guise ), I'm installing BPM etc. onto Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and Linux is …. Linux.So the approach to install BPM, and it's dependenc

IBM Cloud Private - Tinkering with Vagrant
Mon, Nov 13th 2017 3:11p   Dave Hay
So I've been on a slow boat to IBM Cloud Private, over the past few weeks, and am continuing to self-enable in my "spare" time ( my formal enablement starts next week ). Looking at this: -Source: IBM Cloud Private 2.1.0 - Architectureit was clear that I really needed a few boxes onto which to actually install ICP.Whilst it is possible to run everything on one box ( as per this IBM Cloud Private - My first foray ), I thought that I really should do things properly.So, starting with Beast, whic

Installing IBM DB2 on Linux using IBM Installation Manager - Fun and Games
Wed, Nov 8th 2017 3:49p   Dave Hay
I've installed DB2 a million (!) times over the past 17 years, since I joined what was then IBM Software Group.However, I've almost always installed it using the DB2 installation binaries and response files.For a long time now, it's been packaged with IBM BPM, and other products, and thus suitable to be installed using IBM Installation Manager (IIM).So now I'm trying that ….One thing of which to be aware; DB2 is typically only ever installed as root, which means ( to me, at least ) that BP

I'm cleaning up a VM, and looking to remove DB2 11.1: -/opt/ibm/db2/V10.5/install/db2_deinstall -aDBI1149E To execute this program, you must be the owner of the installation copy.Explanation: The current DB2 copy was not installed by the user who is running theprogram.User response: Log in as the user who installed the current copy of DB2 and rerun thecommand.Given that I'm doing this as root, I'm wondering "Whaaaaat?"So I dug further …/opt/ibm/db2/V10.5/install/db2lsInstall Path

Amazon Web Services and a Salutary Learning Experience
Fri, Nov 3rd 2017 8:44a   Dave Hay
I received a small but costly reminder that little in life is free this AM.Whilst indulging in my usual bout of cross-trainer ( #GymOClock ), I checked my emails and saw one purportedly from Amazon Web Services (AWS), suggesting that I owed them $56.31.Being a cautious type, I did NOT click on the links in the email, but instead logged into my AWS dashboard: -https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2and navigated across to the Billing Dashboard: -https://console.aws.amazon.com/billing/homeLo and behold
