tSOAP Standard properties

These properties are used to configure tSOAP running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard tSOAP component belongs to the Internet family.
Information noteNote:

To build Jobs that need to be deployed into the Talend Runtime , it is recommended to use the tESBConsumer component which is best suited for the Talend Runtime.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend products.

Basic settings

Schema and Edit schema

A schema is a row description, it defines the number of fields that will be processed and passed on to the next component.

This component always uses a built-in, read-only schema.

By default, the schema contains three String type columns:

- Header: stores the SOAP message header of the response from the server end.

- Body: stores the SOAP message body of the response from the server end.

- Fault: stores the error information when an error occurs during the SOAP message processing.

If the Output in Document check box is selected, the schema then contains only one Document type column named Soap, which stores the whole response SOAP message in the XML format.

Click Edit schema to view the schema structure.

Information noteWarning:

Changing the schema type may result in loss of the schema structure and therefore failure of the component.


Select this check box if you want to use the NTLM authentication protocol.

Domain: Name of the client domain.

Need authentication

Select this check box and enter a user name and a password in the corresponding fields if this is necessary to access the service.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, enter the password in double quotes in the pop-up dialog box, and click OK to save the settings.

Use http proxy

Select this check box if you are using a proxy server and fill in the necessary information.

Trust server with SSL

Select this check box to validate the server certificate to the client via an SSL protocol and fill in the corresponding fields:

TrustStore file: enter the path (including filename) to the certificate TrustStore file that contains the list of certificates that the client trusts.

TrustStore password: enter the password used to check the integrity of the TrustStore data.


Type in the URL address of the invoked Web server.

SOAP Action

Type in the URL address of the SOAPAction HTTP header field to be used to identify the intent of the SOAP HTTP request.

SOAP version

Select the version of the SOAP system you are using.

Information noteWarning:

The required SOAP Envelope varies among versions.

Use a message from the input schema

Select this check box to read a SOAP message from the preceding component to send to the invoked Web service.

When this check box is selected, the SOAP message field becomes a drop-down list allowing you to select a Document type column to read an input XML file.

Information noteWarning:

This option makes sense only when the tSOAP component is connected with an input component the schema of which contains a Document type column to read a valid SOAP message.

Output in Document Select this check box to output the response message in XML format.

SOAP message

Type in the SOAP message to be sent to the invoked Web service. The global and context variables can be used when you write a SOAP message.

Information noteNote:

To use special Latin characters, use encoding CP1252 in the SOAP message instead.

For further information about the context variables, see Using contexts and variables.

Advanced settings

Use Kerberos

Select this check box to choose a tSetKerberosConfiguration component from the Kerberos configuration list.

Information noteNote:

The OnSubjobOk trigger of tSetKerberosConfiguration should be used for connection with tSoap.

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at a Job level as well as at each component level.

Global Variables

Global Variables

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl+Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For more information about variables, see Using contexts and variables.


Usage rule

This component can be used as an input or as an intermediate component.
