CF receiving XML

A third party wants to be able to push their XML data to us. I am confused on how to proceed. Do I set up a web-service, and force them to call the web-service and then a method. Or is there some way to setup a cfm that handles any http hits?

I am familiar with handling XML in general (as it relates to me posting it, and processing the cfhttp.filecontent) but am stuck with this one.

We are running CFMX, and they are an asp shop (not that it should matter)

Any suggestions on how to proceed would be appreciated.

Personally I would tell them to POST the XML and you could just process it like #form.myXML#
