Hello,
I am new to classic ASP. What is wrong in bellow code.
The code prints "Document not Loaded"
<html>
<head>
<title></title>
</head>
<body>
 
<%  
 
    Dim webServiceUrl, httpReq, node, myXmlDoc
    webServiceUrl = "http://cpp.cisco.com/cpp/CPPLDAP/CPPLDAP.asmx/AuthenticateCiscoUser?db=1&_username=myUserName&_password=myPassword!"
    'webServiceUrl = "http://teachatechie.com/GJTTWebServices/ZipCode.asmx/GetLocation?ZipCode=32218"
    
    Set httpReq = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP") 
    
    httpReq.Open "GET", webServiceUrl, False 
    httpReq.Send 
    
    Set myXmlDoc =Server.CreateObject("MSXML.DOMDocument")	
 
    if myXmlDoc.load(httpReq.responseBody) Then
       Response.write("document loaded")
 
    else
       Response.write("document not loaded")
    end If
    
    Set httpReq = Nothing 
    'title = myXmlDoc.documentElement.ChildNodes(1).text
    'Response.write(title)
    
    'Set node = myXmlDoc.documentElement.selectSingleNode("//CITYSTNAME") 
    
    'If Not node Is Nothing Then 
        'consumeWebService = "<b>That zipcode is within this city:</b><font color = blue>" & node.text & "</font>" 
 
    'Else 
        'consumeWebService = "<b>There is no location associated with that zipcode.</b>" 
 
    'End If    
'Response.Write(consumeWebService)
         
%>
 
</body>
</html>

The .responseBody returns text. And the myXmlDoc.load requires a file to be loaded, not plain text.

If the webServiceUrl url is directing to an xml file, try loading this directly into myXmlDoc.load without using MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP. Like this:

myXmlDoc.load(webServiceUrl)

Another way is to save the text into an temporary xml file and then to load it to the myXmlDoc.load.

Hope this makes sense.

The document is loaded no issues.
But how can I catch a response of webservice. Its a authentication webservice and I need true or false in response.
I am very very new to asp page.
