    what "service operation" to use

    DavidMcDivitt

      I have a working process with one service operation that is Forms/FormsService/renderPDFForm . There are two input variables and one output variable. For input the path of the template is given as a string, and XML data is given as a document. The template is fetched fron resources and XML data is merged with it. For output a flat PDF is given as a document.

       

      We want to leave the two inputs and one output the same but have the process fetch the template from a DB2 database table instead. What additional service operations would be required to do this? One operation will need to open the database table and fetch the template as a blob, with the key being the string input variable. The blob may need to be transformed to a document so a transform operation may be needed. Control will then pass to the operation already being used to create the PDF output. Thanks
