Hi all,

I am new to iWay DM and SM.

Wondering if there is any example or tutorial that I can follow in order to set up RPC, like Geocoder and Google Map WS. The trouble that I have us Web Service adapter always requires the WSDL of the Web service, while both of these services do not have one.

Thanks

Cokey

Hi,

The Google Maps API has a lot of script stuff that can be embeded in HTML, however I'm not that familiar with the DM tools.

In iSM you can request a Geocoded XML by sending the address to lookup to the Google Maps services The Google Geocoding Web Service in a HTTP GET request:

http://maps.google.com/maps/api/geocode/xml?address='2 Penn Plaza, New York, NY'&sensor=false

You simply use the HTTP Agent to send the GET Request with the address to lookup and you can use the response in the rest of your processing.

I just completed a small project using iSM 6.0.1 to geocode the customer database. The API also supports other arguments if you need to find an address from a specific location or the location of a device with a location sensor, the other arguments are all listed on the The Google Geocoding Web Service page.

Good luck!
