Accessing FileNet content from web services

Hi,
I need to access content stored in FileNet.I believe that filenet can send data in soap format which can then be accepted by a webservice I write. However, how does my web service send the request to FileNet to retrieve the information I need? For instance if User information (UserId,FirstName,LastName) is stored in FileNet, how would a webservice send a query to retrieve the data corresponding to UserId ="11" ?
I am using weblogic platform 8.1.

I would appreciate any help in this regard.

Thanks in advance,
Sara

Isn't that information gotten directly from their APIs?

Hi Mark,
I have been unable to find the FileNet API's online...The only leads I got on the net was that we could use weblogic's Virtual Content repository to integrate with FileNet but that is used in the case of Weblogic Portals. In my case I only want to access the information from FileNet from a basic web application.

This is my first work with FileNet and hence some of my questions may seem trivial. Sorry about that in advance.

Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks again!

Hi Mark,
A thought just struck me, I just found out that FileNet P8 platform allows building Web Services. If this is true, then all I have to do is build a webservice on the FileNet platform that accepts my Id and invoke that webservice from my Application.

Not sure if you have worked with FileNet before but thanks for your reply.Please let me know if you can verify the above.

Thanks!
