Call a web service from html using JQuery

Adding to the earlier post of mine I wanted to show a way to call a web service using JQuery in this post.

So the pre-requisites remains same i.e., you must know which web service you want to call (Method + Namespace) and also a gateway URL (URL to which you want to POST/GET).

The example I am trying here is executing the below SOAP request

<SOAP:Envelope xmlns:SOAP="">
<GetXMLObject xmlns="">
<key version="">/OAuthIntegration/RedirectorContent.xml</key>

Gateway URL which I am using is : /cordys/com.eibus.web.soap.Gateway.wcp? 

(For Ppl who understand the architecture of cordys : This is a SOAP request intended to be executed under system organization context. If you want a service to be executed under any organization context you need to append the Organization dn also to the gateway)

By taking references from cordys API, I have created a wrapper on $.ajax call to call a webservice. The wrapper which i have created is something like $.joshi.ajax which is on similar lines with $.cordys.ajax

This works exactly similar way what I have explained in the similar post (request as string and posting to the gateway URL) but this using ajax calls of JQuery.

A utility js file should be as mentioned below, this utility file then be imported where ever you want to use,

<<NameOfJSFile : joshiJQuery which you can view it html page while importing>>

$.joshi = function(){
$.joshi.ajax = function(options){
var opts = $.extend({}, $.joshi.ajax.defaults);
opts = ajaxExtend(opts, options);
opts.url = configureGatewayUrl(opts.url, opts);
if (!opts.url) return null;
if (typeof ( === "undefined" && opts.method && opts.namespace) {
var dataStrings = [];
dataStrings.push("<SOAP:Envelope xmlns:SOAP=''><SOAP:Body><");
dataStrings.push(" xmlns='");
if (opts.parameters) {
dataStrings.push(getParameterString(opts.parameters, opts));
dataStrings.push("</" + opts.method + ">");
dataStrings.push("</SOAP:Body></SOAP:Envelope>"); = dataStrings.join("");
return $.ajax(opts);
function getParameterString(parameters, settings) {
var pStrings = [];
if ($.isArray(parameters)) {
for (var i = 0, len = parameters.length; i < len; i++) {
var par = parameters[i];
pStrings.push("<" + + ">");
pStrings.push((typeof (par.value) === "function" ? par.value() : par.value));
pStrings.push("</" + + ">");
} else if (typeof (parameters) === "object") {
if ($.cordys.json) pStrings.push($.cordys.json.js2xmlstring(parameters));
else {
for (var par in parameters) {
pStrings.push("<" + par + ">");
pStrings.push((typeof (parameters[par]) === "function" ? parameters[par]() : parameters[par]));
pStrings.push("</" + par + ">");
} else if (typeof (parameters) === "function") {
if (typeof (settings.context) === "object") {
pStrings.push(, settings));
} else {
} else if (typeof (parameters) === "string") {
return pStrings.join("");
function configureGatewayUrl(url, options) {
return url ? url.replace(/^http:\//, window.location.protocol + "/").replace(/\/localhost\//, "/" + + "/") : "com.eibus.web.soap.Gateway.wcp";
function ajaxExtend(target, src) {
var key, deep, flatOptions = jQuery.ajaxSettings.flatOptions || {};
for (key in src) {
if (src[key] !== undefined) {
(flatOptions[key] ? target : (deep || (deep = {})))[key] = src[key];
if (deep) {
jQuery.extend(true, target, deep);
return target;
$.joshi.ajax.defaults = {
url: "",
async: true,
isMock: false,
type: "POST",
contentType: "text/xml; charset=\"utf-8\"",
dataType: "json"

And finally the html which you have to write should be something similar to below

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.11.0.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="joshiJQuery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
function callWebService()
var xmlKey="";
var xmlKey=$('#key').val();
 url : "http://dhl-hyd1024/cordys/com.eibus.web.soap.Gateway.wcp",
 method :"GetXMLObject",
 namespace: "",
 parameters : "<key version=''>"+xmlKey+"</key>",
 complete : function(data){
<body class='default'>
<input type="input" id="key" style="width:400px;" value="/bFOIntFrameWork/RedirectorContent.xml"/>
<input type="button" value="Fire Web Service" style="width:200px;" onclick="callWebService()"></input>
<div id="responseOfService" style="
font-family: Trebuchet ms;
font-size: 0.9em;
width: 700px;
border: 1px solid red;
