TS Web Services is an optional component of the Trillium Software System (TSS). TS Web Services allows you to send data to TSS for cleansing (formatting and enhancing) and matching (identifying potential duplicates) using industry-standard REST and SOAP requests.

There are two implementations of TS Web Services:

  • TS Web Services with TSI. The Trillium Server Interface (TSI) provides the underlying technology for communication with TSS components. TS Web Services allows you to send data using REST and SOAP requests. See TS Web Services with TSI for more information.

  • TS Web Services with Director. Trillium Director (Director/Cleanser/Matcher servers) provides the underlying technology for communication with TSS components. TS Web Services allows you to send data using SOAP requests. See TS Web Services with Director for more information.

There are two tools available to configure and test TS Web Services:

  • TSI Web Server Administration, used to configure and start a project for TS Web Services with TSI. See Trillium TSI Web Server Administration for information on TSI Web Server Administration.

  • Web Service Manager for TSI, used to send test requests using TS Web Services.

To create a TS Web Services solution using either implementation:

  • Create, test and deploy a real-time Trillium Quality project, as described in the TSS Control Center’s help and in the Trillium Director User’s Guide.

  • Configure your web service environment using TSI Web Server Administration, as described in Trillium TSI Web Server Administration.

  • Test your web service configuration by creating cleanse and match requests and viewing the web service response. Test using a standard testing tool, such as SmartBear Software’s SoapUI, or using the Web Service Manager. The Web Service Manager can only be used to test TSI implementation.

  • Modify your client application to generate messages to send and receive data to be cleansed and/or matched.
