Please be aware that the SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be shut down on August 29th, 2024 when all it's content will be migrated to the SAP Community.

I am trying to call a SOAP webservice over my Sql-anywhere 17 Database.

I am following the steps declared here

So that I use the following code:

create FUNCTION Bank_Details(BLZ varchar(40))


URL ''

SET 'SOAP(OP=getBank)'


select Bank_Details('10070000');

Whereas is a valid dummy SOAP Service, but my select ends with error status code '404 Not Found'

I activated logging, and can see in the log file that the problem is that the URL is trimmed, so that "" is called instead of ""

Seems to be a problem with the SA16 English DCX topics only, they don't seem to open in time, other versions or the SA16 German help do work as expected. FWIW, you can certainly use the SA17 help on this topic.

As to your question, the mentioned link returns HTTP error 404 in my browser, too, so I'd think it is not a SQL Anywhere problem. Where exactly do you notice that the URL is stripped - can you show a snippet of that according web client log?

In addition to what Volker said, the SAP Help Portal is now preferred over DCX.

One quirk to be aware of is the Portal tends to change "This product" to "This document" after you do a search, and you have to change it back if you want later searches to cover all topics.

FWIW I removed DCX from the search bar on this blog.

Hm I still prefer DCX, except on mobile devices (where it really su..s.)
