Calling a web service from Unix using Curl


Create a request message:
echo "<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv=\"\" xmlns:chec=\"\">" > /tmp/request.xml 
echo "   <soapenv:Header/>"  >> /tmp/request.xml 
echo "   <soapenv:Body>"     >> /tmp/request.xml 
echo "      <chec:process/>" >> /tmp/request.xml 
echo "   </soapenv:Body>"    >> /tmp/request.xml 
echo "</soapenv:Envelope>"   >> /tmp/request.xml

Invoke the web service using curl:
curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: text/xml" -H "SOAPAction: \"http://soadev:8001/soa-infra/services/default/HealthCheck/checkbpel_client_ep\"" --data-binary @/tmp/request.xml http://soadev:8001/soa-infra/services/default/HealthCheck/checkbpel_client_ep?WSDL > /tmp/response.xml

View the contents of the response:
cat /tmp/response.xml
