Check out this developerWorks article for a step-by-step guide to deploying a DB2 web service and then consuming that web service using the Lotus Forms Designer.
Once the WSDL for a particular DB2 web service is pulled into your Lotus Forms Designer, you select and autogenerate a data instance and a specific service, drag-and-drop the data instance onto the design canvas to autocreate the user interface, and then generate the run-time XForms submission for the service. The article above shows exactly how to do each step.
A smart XForms client and a smart interface to the server database mean no custom code in the middle. Thus, computing power is made available to a broader class of IT knowledge workers who require only forms and database skills. Process democratization in action.
