Title How to communicate with ICAT via SOAP
Abstract This document describes and demonstrates how to communicate with an ICAT instance to find and download facility data. The general process for accessing data is described, which entails metadata retrieval from the ICAT Server, followed by data preparation and data retrieval from the ICAT Data Store (IDS). Then, specific implementations of this are shown. Firstly, communication using the ICAT Server SOAP interface together with the IDS REST API is demonstrated. Finally, the use of the Python- ICAT Python module to abstract away details of the SOAP interface is shown.
