Query as a Web Service is a small but powerful tool in the SAP BusinessObjects BI portfolio.

This recipe shows you how to create a QaaWS and how to consume the data in SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards.
First, you will need SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform to be installed on your machine (along with server and client components). You will also need a Universe that is connected to an underlying database.
