1220561 - How to configure a J2EE application to use the Platform Web Services SDK


The BusinessObjects Enterprise XI Release 2 Platform Web Services Consumer SDK includes a BIPlatform web service that can be used to complete administrative tasks such as publishing, scheduling, and exporting.


Deploy the Web Services Provider application.

  1. Go to the Online Developer Library:
  2. Complete the steps in the following section: Web Services SDK -> Web Services Server Components -> Administrator Guide -> Installing BusinessObjects Web Services



In the 'Deploying Business Objects web service' section, the 'server components ZIP file' may be downloaded by going to Web Services SDK > Web Services Server Components.

You can also use the BusinessObjects XI Web Services installer to install the provider application (you must still configure the WAR file and you should follow the steps in the Developer Library) and consumer APIs on the BusinessObjects Enterprise XI Release 2 computer and register the .NET Consumer API DLL files in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).

The installation may be downloaded from the Downloads area of our web site.


Configure the consumer application.

  1. Create a lib folder in the web application's WEB-INF folder.
  2. Copy the Consumer JAR files from the appropriate location to the WEB-INF\lib folder

If you downloaded and ran the separate install, the file that contains the Consumer JAR files will be found at the following location: C:\Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 11.5\Web Services\en\dsws_consumer\data.

If you did not download and run the separate install, download the file that contains the Consumer JAR files by going to Web Services SDK > Web Services Consumer API.

The following Consumer JAR files are now in the WEB-INF\lib folder:

  • axis.jar
  • commons-discovery.jar
  • commons-httpclient.jar
  • commons-logging.jar
  • dsws-bicatalog.jar
  • dsws-biplatform.jar
  • dsws-common.jar
  • dsws-publish.jar
  • dsws-queryservice.jar
  • dsws-reportengine.jar
  • dsws-session.jar
  • jaxrpc.jar
  • log4j.jar
  • saaj.jar
  • wilog.jar
  • wsdl4j.jar
  • xercesImpl.jar
  • xml-apis.jar
