Coldfusion - XMLSearch Help

I have the XMl below returned from a Soap request.  I'm interested in the 'SalesLeadsStatisticsRecord' node (and elements below it).  I'm struggling to get my head around exactly what I need to be putting in the xmlSearch to find this.  Specifically, the namespaces are throwing me.

This is what I have on the CF side, and below an except from the XML I'm working with;

<cfscript>
  xmlContent = XMLParse(trim(cfhttp.FileContent));
  xmlNode = xmlSearch(xmlContent, "//GetSalesLeadsStatisticsResponse/GetSalesLeadsStatisticsRecords/a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecords/a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecord");
</cfscript>
<s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
   <s:Body>
      <GetSalesLeadsStatisticsResponse xmlns="http://affilinet.framework.webservices/Svc">
         <SalesLeadsStatisticsRecords xmlns:a="http://affilinet.framework.webservices/types/PublisherStatistics" xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
            <a:TotalConfirmed>3.29</a:TotalConfirmed>
            <a:TotalOpen>0</a:TotalOpen>
            <a:TotalCancelled>0</a:TotalCancelled>
            <a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecords>
               <a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecord>
                  <a:Date>2009-06-29T00:00:53</a:Date>
                  <a:ProgramTitle>XYZRetailer</a:ProgramTitle>
                  <a:SubId>bcnx</a:SubId>
                  <a:CommissionDescription>Sale: 2 % von 164.95 EUR</a:CommissionDescription>
                  <a:Commission>3.29</a:Commission>
                  <a:Information>Note in the case of cancellation</a:Information>
                  <a:CheckDate>2009-06-30T00:00:00</a:CheckDate>
                  <a:ProgramId>0</a:ProgramId>
                  <a:TransactionStatus>Confirmed</a:TransactionStatus>
               </a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecord>
            </a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecords>
         </SalesLeadsStatisticsRecords>
      </GetSalesLeadsStatisticsResponse>
   </s:Body>
</s:Envelope>

Yet another XPath implementation which doesn't support XPath!

And XPath strictly speaking is NOT namespace aware.

And ColdFusion has a funny way of doing things with default namespaces.

That all said read : http://www.talkingtree.com/blog/index.cfm/2005/11/18/XmlSearchNoNameNamespace

and try puting a colon in from of those nodes with a default name space :-

xmlNode = xmlSearch(xmlContent, "//:GetSalesLeadsStatisticsResponse/:GetSalesLeadsStatisticsRecords/a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecords/a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecord");

Thanks for the reply, BigRat.

I'd actually already seen that article, and tried various alternatives as possible solutions.  Again, no dice.

Doing a straight 'copy & paste' of your code, the following error is returned:

"Prefix must resolve to a namespace: "

Nil desperandum, let's try a couple of options

1) any namespace (since exactly what namespace we are using doesn't mater in this case) :-

xmlNode = xmlSearch(xmlContent, "//*:GetSalesLeadsStatisticsResponse/*:GetSalesLeadsStatisticsRecords/a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecords/a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecord");

2) localname predicate

xmlNode = xmlSearch(xmlContent, "//*[local-name()='GetSalesLeadsStatisticsResponse']/:[local-name()='GetSalesLeadsStatisticsRecords']/a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecords/a:SalesLeadsStatisticsRecord");

Thanks BigRat, I appreciate you taking the time to look at this.

Still no dice however - same response as previous with both additional options :-(

Well, it seems that the bug has either been corrected in a way which is completely different to all the system I know, or it has not been corrected but made worse.

Let us try to avoid XPath and try a DOM access.

What do you get with :-

    xmlContent.Envelope.Body.GetSalesLeadsStatisticsResponse.SalesLeadsStatisticsRecords.SalesLeadsStatisticsRecords

?

Thanks BigRat,

I no longer get the namespace error with that, however no results are returned.  I did a cfdump of the cfhttp response (which, in hindsight I should have done earlier), and noted that the response is actually an error.

<s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"><s:Body><s:Fault><faultcode xmlns:a="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ws/2005/05/addressing/none">a:ActionNotSupported</faultcode><faultstring xml:lang="en-US">The message with Action '' cannot be processed at the receiver, due to a ContractFilter mismatch at the EndpointDispatcher. This may be because of either a contract mismatch (mismatched Actions between sender and receiver) or a binding/security mismatch between the sender and the receiver. Check that sender and receiver have the same contract and the same binding (including security requirements, e.g. Message, Transport, None).</faultstring></s:Fault></s:Body></s:Envelope>

I haven't actually changed anything in the Soap request since bringing it in from soapUI, so I'm even more confused than I was before now!  Clearly, this is presumably where the underlying problem is though.

I guess solving that issue is beyond the scope of this question though, so I'll go ahead and award points for giving me the guidance with the original question.
