I want to use JQuery AJAX to send the below XML document and receive in response an XML document.  The problem is when I receive the response it comes across as successful but the data is blank.  I am using Javascript JQuery to handle both the request and following response.

XML Document
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
	<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
		<soap:Body>
			<GetRates xmlns="http://www.notavailable.com/notavailable/">
				<objGetRatesRequest>
					<UserId>notavailable</UserId>
					<Password>notavailable</Password>
					<TpaCode>DEMO</TpaCode>
					<DealerNo>DEMO001</DealerNo>
					<NewUsed>U</NewUsed>
					<VIN>WBABN53463PH03667</VIN>
					<VehiclePurchasePrice>24990</VehiclePurchasePrice>
					<VehicleOdometer>19456</VehicleOdometer>
					<SaleDate>2011-05-26T00:00:00</SaleDate>
				</objGetRatesRequest>
			</GetRates>
		</soap:Body>
	</soap:Envelope>

Open in new window


Javascript JQuery Code
$.get('ajax/getRequest.php', function(xmlDoc) { 
				alert(xmlDoc)
				$.ajax({
					url: "https://uat825.notavilable.com/notavailable.webservice/notavailable.asmx",
					processData: false,
					type: "POST",
					data: xmlDoc,
					success: function(data, status) {alert(status);alert(data)}
				});			
			});

You can't do cross-domain/protocol ajax call.
It seems it's your case here.
The page used to post or get the data need to be on the same domain and use the same protocol than the page which receive or send the data.

You need to use a proxy, JSONP, or others technics to achieve your goal

Thanks for your response.  It provided me enough information to create the solution.  Below is the end result snippet of code I am returning to the client.  This works perfectly on a Windows 2008 Server PHP Environment.

<?php
session_start();
include_once "../inc/dbcon.php";
include_once "../inc/globals.php";
include_once "../inc/constants.php";

$VIN= $_REQUEST["VIN"];
$VehicleOdometer= $_REQUEST["VehicleOdometer"];
$NewUsed = $_REQUEST["NewUsed"];
$VehiclePurchasePrice= $_REQUEST["VehiclePurchasePrice"];
$DealerNo= $_REQUEST["DealerNo"];
$SaleDate= date("Y-m-d")."T00:00:00";

$con = getDBConn();
$xmlString = '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<soap:Body>
<GetRates xmlns="http://www.notavailable.com/notavailable/">
<objGetRatesRequest>
<UserId>notavailable</UserId>
<Password>notavailable</Password>
<TpaCode>notavailable</TpaCode>
<DealerNo>'.$DealerNo.'</DealerNo>
<NewUsed>'.$NewUsed.'</NewUsed>
<VIN>'.$VIN.'</VIN>
<VehiclePurchasePrice>'.$VehiclePurchasePrice.'</VehiclePurchasePrice>
<VehicleOdometer>'.$VehicleOdometer.'</VehicleOdometer>
<SaleDate>'.$SaleDate.'</SaleDate>
</objGetRatesRequest>
</GetRates>
</soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>';

define('XML_PAYLOAD', $xmlString);
define('XML_POST_URL', 'https://uat825.notavailable.com/notavailable.webservice/notavailable.asmx');

$ch = curl_init(); 
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, XML_POST_URL); 
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); 
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 4); 
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, XML_PAYLOAD); 
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Content-Type: text/xml','Connection: close'));
	
$start = array_sum(explode(' ', microtime()));
$result = curl_exec($ch); 
$stop = array_sum(explode(' ', microtime()));
$totalTime = $stop - $start;

if ( curl_errno($ch) ) {
	$result = 'cURL ERROR -> ' . curl_errno($ch) . ': ' . curl_error($ch);
} else {
	$returnCode = (int)curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);
	switch($returnCode){
		case 200:
			break;
		default:
			$result = 'HTTP ERROR -> ' . $returnCode;
			break;
	}
}	

curl_close($ch);

echo 'Total time for request: ' . $totalTime . "\n";
echo $result;   

sqlsrv_close($con); 
?>

It would've been better if the alternative solutions was presented in detail with coding examples than simply posting a link.
