    Axis problem

    Cliff Mosdall Level 1



      I'm using Coldfusion 11 and I'm trying to consume a web service but I'm getting the following error:


      org.apache.axis2.AxisFault: An error occurred while checking the security for the message.

      I can create an object of the WSDL and cfdump it, so there's no problem with the definition. The error occurs when I try to call one of the functions.


      <cfset ws = createObject( "webservice", "https://testapi.kedin.nl/mediatorservice.svc?wsdl" )>
      <cfdump var="#ws#">


      Has anyone seen this error before?

          How are you consuming the web service? Your WSDL suggests you have to pass the security credentials by means of a Web Services Policy (WSP).

            Hi BKBK,


            Thanks for the reply. I wasn't clear in the original post. The webservice requires a username and password. The error occurs when I call one of the methods. It's not a CF problem. I'm sure there's some sort of incompatibility between the webservice and Axis - that's my guess. Here's the code:


            <cfset ws = createObject( "webservice", "https://teststub.kedin.nl/KedinStubService.svc?wsdl", {username="StubUser",password="T68tlChm"} )>
            <cfdump var="#ws#">
            <cfset args = StructNew()>
            <cfset args.testRequest.TestProperty = "Test working!">
            <cfset x = ws.GetResponse( args )>
            <cfdump var="#x#">

              That looks all right. Is the service perhaps expecting a SOAP request? What about trying something like


              <!--- SOAP message to send to web service--->

                <cfsavecontent variable="msg"><?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

                  <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">


                          <getResponse soapenv:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">


                                    <testProperty>Test working!</testProperty>







                      <!--- Invoke web service to send message--->

                      <cfhttp url="https://teststub.kedin.nl/KedinStubService.svc?wsdl" method="post" username="StubUser" password="T68tlChm">

                          <cfhttpparam type="header" name="content-type" value="text/xml">

                          <cfhttpparam type="header" name="accept-encoding" value="no-compression"/>

                          <cfhttpparam type="header" name="SOAPAction" value="">

                          <cfhttpparam type="header" name="content-length" value="#len(msg)#">

                          <cfhttpparam type="header" name="charset" value="utf-8">

                          <cfhttpparam type="xml" name="message" value="#trim(msg)#">


                      <cfdump var="#cfhttp#" >

                  <cfcatch type="any">

                      <cfdump var="#cfcatch#">




              Does the provider provide any information on how to consume the service? That would offer us the best clue.

                Thanks for taking the time to do that! I've tried that and various other things including addSOAPRequestHeader.

                After days making attempts, the webservice provider is now writing a wrapper that does not need authentication in the request. I'll be providing a Token as part of the function call for security.

                Once again, thanks for all your efforts.
