    Web Services 101

      So I was looking around the ColdFusion Administrator and noticed the Web Services section. Does anyone have a link or a "how to" on how to use this section to register a WSDL and access it with coldfusion?

          How about Using Web Services in the ColdFusion Developer's Guide? If you are trying to publish web services using ColdFusion, you should start by reading about CF components.

            Thank you for link to the docs, but it doesn't really talk about "registering" a web service inside of the Coldfusion administrator. How would you register a WSDL in CF and use it in your code?

              Hi,

              If you want to register your webservice open up the "Coldfusion Administrator" panel ( http://localhost/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm) and click the "Web Services" link in the left frame under the "Data & Services" menu.

              The benefit of registering a webservice is you need not to specify the Webservice url when your invoking, instead you just provide the name you already registered.

                My experience is that once you write it, the first time you invoke it, it registers itself. It takes a few seconds but it only happens once.
