ETL HTTP Get or tWebServices Help

0

Which component should I be using to aquire data from a .jsp export service?  The .jsp service is a HTTPS URL which requires 5 inputs (including token, date parameters, and file type).  I can go to this page, manually enter the input fields, and get the file of resulting data.  My question to the forum is which ETL component(s) should I be using to a) send the paramenters automatically, and b) receive the file.

I had thought tWebServicesInput, but I'm having trouble getting that working properly.

Thank you in advance!

Try tHttpRequest. If you really need to send customized parameters, try using tJava and using java's http request methods.

Thanks, Hozawa -

I ended up using a 'tFileFetch' component, which did the trick.  However, I think tHTTPrequest would have worked too.
