Goal

How to get the file content of output and logfile of an ESS job using Financial Utilities Service web service in SOAPUI?

Problem Description
---------------------------------------------------
Financial Utilities Service web service can be used to start an ESS job in Fusion Applications, to monitor its status and to download the output and log file. In order to retrieve the output and log file of an ESS request two operations are available: downloadESSJobExecutionDetails and downloadExportOutput.

As a response when invoking the web service with any of these two operations a payload containing a list of document ID, file name, content type, file title, author, security group and account, file content is returned. In this payload the file content is contained as an attachment, so please find below a method to extract the file content from the web service output using SOAPUI.

Having this as a starting point, a developer can move further and implement the steps below in a piece of program thus making available the file content to be interpreted an processed further.

  Working With SOAP Messages  describes how to consume/receive an attachment from a SOAP message payload in java.
