Webservice Stubs

Tags: #wsdl #cf8



I've working with webservices for a while now and i know that coldfusion generates java classes for a given wsdl and that these classes are in the <coldfusion_install_dir>\stubs\


Inside the stubs directory there is one folder for each referenced webservice...these folders have names like WS-882657457 or WS2071109075.


What is the relation between the WSDL and these folders? Where can I see the association Webservice - Stub Folder?

    Always found these to be very random. You might be able to use jad, a java decompiler, to gain insight to the url embedded on the class files.

    Your example deals with Jave objects already. So why not just write the Java code directly from there? Something like


    import coldfusion.server.ServiceFactory;


    public class MyClass


        public String testFunction()



            try {


             //declare ServiceFactory variable

             ServiceFactory serviceFactory;


             //instantiate ServiceFactory variable

             serviceFactory = new ServiceFactory();


             //etc., etc., and off you go



            catch (Throwable ex) {




            return someString;




    Having said that, I have a lot of doubt about the strategy you're following. It is still unclear, to me at least, what you wish to achieve. Why would you want to have a handle on the internal ColdFusion processes between the WSDL and the stubs directory? Since you don't say, it sounds like you're just tinkering in the bowels of the machine. Even if you get it working, it will probably lead to more problems than you expect.
