Cfajaxproxy Error 500 Content Is Not Allowed In Prolog

I would like to run some asyncrynous code by pushing a button on a coldfusion 8 page.
I have a coldfusion component that creates a string and returns it.
When I do cfinvoke it works perfect but I can not seem to run the same code via cfajaxproxy.
I get the error "Contnet is Not Allowed In Prolog".
How can I fix this issue?

--------------------

<cfoutput>
<cfajaxproxy cfc="#REQUEST.cfcPath#\mycfc" jsclassname="jobj" />
</cfoutput>
<html>
<head>
    <script type="text/javascript">
            function serverTimeClick()
            {
                  var instance = new jobj();
                  instance.setCallbackHandler(displayResponse)  
            instance.setErrorHandler(errorHandler)
                  instance.serverTime();
            }
            function displayResponse(resp)
        {
            document.getElementById("output").innerHTML = resp
        }
        function errorHandler(statusCode,statusMsg)
        {
            alert(statusCode+': '+statusMsg)
        }
            
    </script>
</head>
<body>

            <cfoutput>#REQUEST.cfcPath#</cfoutput><br /><br />
            <button name="serverTime" onClick="serverTimeClick()">Server Time</button>
            <br><br>
            <br><br>
            <div id="output"></div>

<!--- // this works just fine //
<cfinvoke component="#REQUEST.cfcPath#\mycfc" method="serverTime" returnvariable="mylocal" />
<cfoutput>#mylocal#</cfoutput>
--->
</body>
</html>

---------------

<cfcomponent  name="mycfc" >

      <cffunction name="init" returntype="void" hint="Initializes variables" access="public" output="false">
            <!--- Place initialization code here --->
      </cffunction>
   
      <!--- Gets the server date and time --->
       <cffunction name="serverTime" access="remote" returntype="string">
            <cfset var mylocal = "this is my string" />        
           <cfreturn mylocal />
       </cffunction>

</cfcomponent>

Watch out for extra spaces in the values you're passing, use trim() around them according to this article

That's good advice but it did not help.
I trimmed the var on the cfc before returning it.
It's just so strange that cfinvoke would work just fine but not via cfajaxproxy.
Any other thoughts?

if you were using firebug you would see the returned ajax result

My guess is the content not allowed error is due to an error page being returned.

looks like you are trying to access the function but have the incorrect access type public

for any type of ajax call you need access="remote"

public is for "public: available to a locally executing page or component method."

sorry ignore that

i saw the init function access = public

(although the firebug advice still holds)

>> Content is not allowed in prolog is an error generally emitted by the Java XML parsers when data is encountered before the <?xml... declaration. You may inspect the document in a text editor and think nothing is wrong, but you need to go down to the byte level to understand the problem. You probably have a character encoding bug.

right... It should have been remote.
I changed it but still got the same error.
I'll try firebug to see what's going on.

Looking at it in firebug it looks like it freaks out when going form the CF package to the apache.xerces.jaxpSAXParserImpl package.

Here is the error:

      at org.apache.xerces.jaxp.SAXParserImpl$JAXPSAXParser.parse(Unknown Source)
      at org.apache.xerces.jaxp.SAXParserImpl.parse(Unknown Source)
      at coldfusion.wddx.DeserializerWorker.deserialize(DeserializerWorker.java:268)
      at coldfusion.wddx.WddxDeserializer.deserialize(WddxDeserializer.java:96)

It looks like thats when "Unknown Source" starts poping up.

I really have no idea what that means but it has to do with the xml parser.

I'll post this and come back to split points.

I don't know how else to attack this problem.
