Extending the Power and Flexibility of ActiveBatch 
ActiveBatch Web Services ENV gives developers a cross-platform, industry-standard alternative to ActiveBatch's Windows-based COM architecture, allowing users to manage or program ActiveBatch features regardless of operating environment. ActiveBatch Web Services ENV extends the ActiveBatch application by allowing cross platform access to ActiveBatch Objects, Methods, and Properties as well as easy manipulation of ActiveBatch within applications and/or scripts.

With the Web Services ENV framework, developers can harness the power of ActiveBatch via their native environment. ActiveBatch developers have the most comprehensive and powerful options available to programmatically retrieve, access, manage and submit information across their extended enterprise.

Included with Web Services ENV is ABATCMD; a new Java based, cross-platform command line client. ABATCMD integrates with Web Services ENV, allowing organizations to control and manage their ActiveBatch environment from any operating system with a Java Runtime Environment.


Available Web Services Options
Using industry-standard protocols, Web Services ENV allows developers to direct an application with a similar level of control as through the traditional Windows COM interface. Two programming models are offered through Web Services ENV:

  • Simple Command-supports the issuance of single-line URLs via regular HTTP posts, gets, as well as SOAP messages, to invoke the most popular ActiveBatch object methods such as Trigger, Enable, and Disable. These simple commands can be issued from any Web-enabled device including desktops and smart phones.
  • Full Command-allows for more extensive integration of ActiveBatch within an application, including support for objects such as Queues, Plans, and Jobs. The full command model also allows a superset of commands from the simple command model.


ActiveBatch Web Services ENV is separately licensed.

Users of ActiveBatch V10 SP3 and above are encouraged to use Web Services API, which is available as part of the ActiveBatch core capabilities. You can learn more about ActiveBatch Web Services API here.
