In this tutorial we will explain how you can work with webservices in Futurama.



- Futurama Webservice must be installed.

- Completing the tutorial Creating formulas with Futurama first, is recommended.

- You need a testtool for the webservice, such as SoapUI.



This tutorial is meant as in introduction on building a webservice yourself. We explain how you can work with webservices in Futurama, and we will show a standard webservice that is an integral part of Futurama. We will test this webservice by using a testtool.

By completing this tutorial you should understand how webservices in Futurama work, so we can start building an actual webservice-functionality ourselves. We then can directly test and show it, without explaing the procedure to do so.


  • In the tutorial we don’t show you how to create and configure a webservice application (as this isn’t Futurama specific material). Consult this page for information about the installation process.
  • Please note that in more recent versions of Futurama, pressing the 'Evaluate' button will display an error message if the XmlOutput property has not yet been filled in.
