SOAP Request - Works in soapUI, but not in Coldfusion

Hi Folks,

As a newcoming to the world of webservices, I've been using soapUI to build requests, test them for output, then code the CFML from them.  So far, with the small number of web services I've worked with, it's been fine.

However, I've come across one that works fine in soapUI, but isn't working once I bring it into my Coldfusion page.

A <cfdump> shows the return is giving a '404 Not Found'.  There's obviously something wrong somewhere, but I'm not sure where!

You are hitting http://api.wsdomain.com/V3/AffiliateService url isn't it?

Is this the correct url .
Try hit the url with cfhttp method head and print cfhttp.responseheader.status_code if it  has 404 then it is broken link

Thanks for the reply.

The status code does indeed return a 404 error - both with that url and with the alternative referenced in the request (same, minus the /v3/etc etc).

That's what puzzles me more than anything - it returns fine in soapUI.

I've found the solution :-)

It turned out to be as simple as the capitalization within the URL.  In my CFhttp I was using /V3/ - changing it to /v3/ fixed it.
