Figure B-10 Testing with the Web Services Explorer
7. Click submitPO inside of the Actions frame and provide test input for each of
the following items listed on the screen. This is the information that the .NET
Web service will receive in a SOAP message.
Important: Obey the input guidelines for each object type that requires
information (for example, do not write text inside of inputs that require numeric
values, such as
float or nonNegativeInteger).
Also, the customerRef object is of a
normalized string type, meaning that it
has special restrictions that must be considered when choosing a value. We
recommend using the following value for this object: A12345-9876543-xyz. It
should be inputted exactly as its written here, paying special attention to the
two dashes and the upper and lower-case letter specifics contained within it.
This is illustrated in Figure B-11 on page 500.
