Example Flow Screenshot

A small workflow, which retrieves country information such as capital city, phone code, language information (see full WSDL from http://www.oorsprong.org). The dialog of the web service node allows the WSDL location, binding and operation information to be entered and requires the user to define the web service input and output parameters.
