You use the WSIFOperation interface to invoke a service based on a particular binding.
The WSIFOperation interface is the run-time representation of an operation. This interface provides methods to create input, output, and fault messages, and to invoke the operation.
Here is the Javadoc for the WSIFOperation interface.
createInputMessage, createOutputMessage and createFaultMessage These are factory methods to create the messages required by the invocation methods. All invocation methods require an input message.
executeRequestResponseOperation This method invokes "In Out" operations.
executeInputOnlyOperation This method invokes "In only" operations.
executeRequestResponseOperation If this method is used for invocation, then an output and a fault message are instantiated and passed on the call to the method. If the method returns true, then the output message contains the response message. If the message returns false, then a fault occurred and is returned in the fault message.
executeRequestResponseAsync This method allows "In Out" operations to be invoked with the reply handled using an alternate thread. Use of this method is discussed further in WSIFOperation - Asynchronous interactions.
setContext and getContext Use of these methods is discussed in WSIFOperation - Context.
All of the executeNnnn methods fail with an exception if there is an error in processing the request in the WSIF provider.
Setting the timeouts for synchronous and asynchronous operations is discussed in WSIFOperation - Synchronous and asynchronous timeouts.
