another server is sending our server xml. for now i just want to find out how to receive that xml and send a response back saying "i got it" by sending back this line.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?><status><result>success</result></status>

so using the following code to try and do that, i am getting a "The system cannot locate the resource specified" error on the last line (i.e <cfset xmlHTTP.send(xmlDoc2)>)

any idea why it can't find it?


<!-- RETRIEVE XML FROM OTHER SERVER -->
<cfset xml = url.xmlToPass>

<cfobject name="xmlDoc" class="msxml.domDocument" action="create" type="COM">

<cfset xmlDoc.async="False">

<cfset xmlDoc.loadXML(xml)>

<cfset ParseErr = xmlDoc.parseError>

<cfoutput><b>#ParseErr.errorCode#</b><br /><b>#ParseErr.reason#</b></cfoutput>


<!-- SEND XML RESONSE BACK TO OTHER SERVER -->

<cfset xml2="<?xml version='1.0' encoding='iso-8859-1'?><status><result>success</result></status>">

<cfobject name="xmlDoc2" class="msxml.domDocument" action="create" type="COM">

<cfset xmlDoc2.async="False">

<cfset xmlDoc2.loadXML(xml2)>

<cfset ParseErr2 = xmlDoc2.parseError>
<cfoutput><b>#ParseErr2.errorCode#</b><br /><b>#ParseErr2.reason#</b></cfoutput>

<cfobject name="xmlHTTP" class="Microsoft.XMLHTTP" action="create" type="COM">


<cfset xmlHTTP.open("POST", "http://#CGI.SERVER_NAME##CGI.SCRIPT_NAME#?#CGI.QUERY_STRING#", false)>
 
<cfset xmlHTTP.setRequestHeader("Method","POST")>
<cfset xmlHTTP.setRequestHeader("Content-Type","application/x-www-form-urlencoded")>
<cfset xmlHTTP.setRequestHeader("Content-Length", 180)>
<cfset xmlHTTP.setRequestHeader("Version","HTTP/1.0")>

     
<cfset xmlHTTP.send(xmlDoc2)>

i found the following code, would this work? i'm a bit confused about the last line, shouldn't it be -> xmlhttp.Send(xml)



<script language="JavaScript1.2">
<!--
function sendXMLResponse()
{ var xml = "<?xml version='1.0' encoding='iso-8859-1'?><status><result>success</result></status>"
 var blah = new ActiveXObject("msxml.domDocument")
 blah.loadXML(xml)
 var xmlhttp = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
 xmlhttp.Open("POST", "https://www.website.com", false)
 xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Method","POST")
 xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Content-Length", 180)
 xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Version","HTTP/1.0")
 xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Content-Type","application/x-www-form-urlencoded")
 xmlhttp.Send("<some>asdf</some>")
}
//-->
</script>

I don't really understand what you are doing after the first cfobject..why do you need that?

I'm not really sure, but worth a try..

<cfset xml2="<?xml version='1.0' encoding='iso-8859-1'?><status><result>success</result></status>">
<cfobject name="xmlDoc2" class="msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP.3.0" action="create" type="COM">

<cfset xmlDoc2.open("POST", "http://#CGI.SERVER_NAME##CGI.SCRIPT_NAME#?#CGI.QUERY_STRING#", false)>
 
<cfset xmlDoc2.setRequestHeader("Method","POST")>
<cfset xmlDoc2.setRequestHeader("Content-Type","application/x-www-form-urlencoded")>
<cfset xmlDoc2.setRequestHeader("Content-Length", 180)>
<cfset xmlDoc2.setRequestHeader("Version","HTTP/1.0")>

<cfset xmlDoc2.send(xml2)>

>>I don't really understand what you are doing after the first cfobject..why do you need that?

I am trying to send a xml response back to that other sever..

specifically, i am trying to send back:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='iso-8859-1'?><status><result>success</result></status>

is there a better way to do this?

the part that says:

#CGI.SERVER_NAME##CGI.SCRIPT_NAME#?#CGI.QUERY_STRING#"

is suppose to the url of that other server..
