I'm exploring the use of web services in our Coldfusion 8 environment for possible use in future development. I've come up to speed on the topic, but I am having an issue in getting even a basic example to work. Basically, when I run the Coldfusion page to invoke the web service it simply spins and spins and never does anything. I've tried placing the files in different folders as well as on different servers, but to no avail. Is there a CF service that needs to be turned on for this work? Could it be a permissions issue? Any thoughts?
Here are the components I've put together:
The CFC file called: "WebServiceFunctionTest.cf
<cffunction name="WelcomeMsg" access="remote" returntype="string" output="no">
<cfargument name="name" type="string" required="yes">
<cfreturn "<h3><font color='blue'>Welcome to my Web Service Site</font>
</h3> " & arguments.name &"! " & "What would you like to do?">
The .cfm that calls the web service, "index.cfm"
" method="WelcomeMsg" returnvariable="strg">
<cfinvokeargument name="name" value="Neo"/>
