Start process via soap


#1

Hello, Everybody,

Is it possible to create a business process which will be called/started via SOAP web service ?

Camunda has quite powerful REST API and also Java API.
But is it possible to achieve this only in the Modeler ?

Hi Yordan,

We have a couple of examples related to SOAP here.
Keep in mind that, Get Weather Forecast is known to be down on a regular basis.

Best regards,

Thanks, Yana !

Yes, I wanted to make sure that currently this is the only option I have.

Do you know of any plans to support SOAP services that corresponds to the REST ones ?

Best Regards,
Yordan

Hi Yordan,

We do not have such plans.
Why do you want to use SOAP instead of REST?

Best regards,
Yana

Hello, Yana,

Legacy systems :slight_smile:

There are still out there (in Production) old systems not having that advanced REST API clients.
They typically support SOAP clients and services.

Also it is common to support both SOAP and REST API. Modern frameworks exposes both services out of the same metadata. for example asp.net web api
