    Web Service Remote Access

    otisme
      Hi,

      Working locally I can access a web service with the following 2 files in directory root, no mappings, no config of web service in Administrator:
      <!--- /simpleTextConsume.cfm/ --->

      <cfcomponent>
      <cffunction name="firstws" access="remote" returntype="string">
      <cfreturn "Developer Center is great!">
      </cffunction>
      </cfcomponent>
      <!--- simpleTextConsume.cfc/ --->
      <cfinvoke
      webservice=" http://127.0.0.1:8500/cbweblatest/webservices/simpleText.cfc?wsdl"
      method="firstws"
      returnvariable="returnedText">
      </cfinvoke>

      <cfoutput>
      #variables.returnedText#
      </cfoutput>

      The error I get when I try to run http://www.myurl.com\webservices\simpleTextConsume.cfm is the following:
      /*____________________________________________________
      Could not generate stub objects for web service invocation.
      Name: http://127.0.0.1:8500/cbweblatest/webservices/simpleText.cfc?wsdl. WSDL: http://127.0.0.1:8500/cbweblatest/webservices/simpleText.cfc?wsdl. org.xml.sax.SAXException: Fatal Error: URI=null Line=1: Next character must be ">" terminating comment ....
      __________________________________________________*/

      I've played around with trying to use a mapping and creating a webservice in admin, but get similar error, 'cant create..'

      The server in question is a linux based virtual server, non enterprise edition of CF 6.1, However, I use CF8 locally, everything locally tests fine with the above, also Flash datagrid with SQL testing works fine locally.

      The above not working is a major block, any pointers appreciated.
