web service tutorial for version 7

I'm following the web service tutorial for version 7.3 here

The main problem as I see it is that the tutorial is for the pre-version 7 of bonitasoft before UI/Contracts etc. So I've tried to develop an example to use by building a contract first etc.

I've also used the example supplied by Antoine Mottier from his [dropbox account] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/3uanksh37vpdhu2/WebServiceWeather-1.0.bos?dl=0)

How do you "edit as an expression" in UI?

The tutorial on creating a web service for version 7.3 located here references pre-UI steps when asking the student to create a form and then click on the data tab and then "edit as an expression".

AIUI, the expression editor cannot be used in UI as it "has a different concept of data".

What to do in this situation? There is the 6.x application tab however I would rather not if possible try to learn the legacy way of doing things.

Set web service to use with the connector


I have created a web service in .asmx format and now need to use it in BonitaSoft, I'm using version 7.

How do I configure the SOAP connector to access the web service.

I tried a configuration but i got the following error message:

Consumir web service hecho en .asmx


Tengo creado un web service en formato .asmx y ahora necesito utilizarlo en BonitaSoft, estoy usando la versión 7.

Cómo debo configurar el conector SOAP para poder tener acceso al web service.

Agradecido por cualquier ayuda,


Handle a SoapFault in a web service

Hi everyone,

I'm using a web service in my process.

I would like to handle the case when an error occurs, and the SOAP response contains the SoapFault tag.

Concretely, in the input I have an identifier of a person. In the output, I should have infos about that person. If there's no person with that identifier, the web service returns a response with SoapFault. How can I warn the process user about that?

I'm using Bonita CE 6.5.1. Thank you in advance.

Using a SOAP Web Service Connector through proxy

Hello Community,

I do not succeed in consuming a SOAP Webservice from Bonita Studio through a proxy. Even though I set the proxy-settings correctly in Bonita Studio and system-wide, I always get the error: Exception trying to call remote webservice

At home (without any proxy) I am able to consume the webservice correctly. That´s why I know that the Web Service connector is correctly configured. At work, I get the mentioned error. I changed proxy settings in Bonita Sutdio to manual and added the correspondent url. But the mentioned error still occured.
