Dropping and linking the components for the provider

In the draft Job, a tESBProviderRequest and a tESBProviderResponse are already selected and configured. tESBProviderRequest will send a request to the specified Web service and tESBProviderResponse will send back the response corresponding to the request. These two components can be found in the ESB group of the Palette.


  1. Right-click tESBProviderRequest, hold and drag to tESBProviderResponse to link these two components.
  2. Drop a tXMLMap in the middle of the row link from the Palette and in the pop-up window, name the output link as, for example, airport_response. This will also be used as the name of the output table in the map editor of tXMLMap.

    Then your data service provider Job looks like this:

    The red cross icon prompts you to configure the tXMLMap component.

  3. From the Db Connections node of the Repository tree view, drop the connection to the airport data, the airport database table in this example, onto the workspace. Then the Components wizard is opened.
    For more information on how to create a database connection in the Repository, see Managing metadata in Studio.
  4. Double-click tMysqlInput in this wizard to create the corresponding component on the workspace and link it to tXMLMap.


In this scenario, the airport data is composed of airport names and the corresponding country codes. The following figure presents the database table in use.

Database table.

Until now, you need only to configure tXMLMap as the other components are already configured automatically.
