Web Services

A Web service is a method of communication between two electronic devices over a network. It is a software function provided at a network address over the Web with the service always on as in the concept of utility computing. A web service has an interface described in Web Services Description Language (WSDL). Other systems interact with the Web service in a manner prescribed by its description using SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) messages. There are two major classes of Web services: REST-compliant web services, and Arbitrary web services.

Looks like I'm back again.

I created a new domain on my Windows Server 2016 Essentials domain controller, and transferred all my users to it. Everything seemed to be going well until I took off the static ip I had set on one of my user machines.

This led me to check my Server Manager on my one and only domain controller, and I found the following errors.

Error 1202: DFSR
Additional Information:
Error: 160 (One or more arguments are not correct.)

Setup WizardI have Questions on the setup Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services.  I am setting up on a Server 2012 R2.  The purpose will be to support web services for Great Plains.  The wizard is asking about an Application Directory Partition, do I create one to support web services for Great Plains?  If so,  the example shows CN=Partition1 ,DC=Woodgrove, DC=COM.

Does this mean that:
DC would be Local domainname?
DC would be LOCAL instead of COM if the AD is domainname.local?

Experts,
 I have sharepoint 2013 environment and i was working on to find current user belongs to AD group or not by java script. We have web services created to check current user  part of AD or not by passing Groupname ,  Domain and username.  For some reason i am not getting username if user does not have access. But I am getting userid from _spcontext.

I have a rest api to get the username from userid. It's not getting 401 error who does not have access to that site so i am planning to use server side code with Runwithelevated access.

Can you please help me to write code so i can just pass userid and it's retrieve username and domain form user profile?

var userid= _spPageContextInfo.userId;
var requestUri = _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/getuserbyid(" + userid + ")";
var requestHeaders = { "accept" : "application/json;odata=verbose" };
$.ajax({
    url : requestUri,
    contentType : "application/json;odata=verbose",
    headers : requestHeaders,
    success : onSuccess,
    error : onError
});

I'm trying to add headers to a HttpWebRequest

The code I'm trying to emulate (from PHP), to vb  is:

$ENCODE_CREDENTIALS = base64_encode("username:password");

$options = array(
'http' =>
  array (
    'method'        => 'POST',
    'header'        => 'Authorization: Basic ' . $ENCODE_CREDENTIALS,
    'ignore_errors'  => true,
  )
);
$context = stream_context_create( $options );
$response = file_get_contents(
  "$SERVER_ADDRESS:$PORT/login",
  false,
  $context

Or CURL:

curl -u "LOGIN:PASSWORD" -X POST "SERVER_ADDRESS:PORT/login"

Open in new window


I can access the web services but can't login. How do I add the header?

So far I've:

request.Method = "POST"
request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
Dim name As String = "admin:pwd"
Dim userInfo As String = Convert.ToBase64String(System.Text.Encoding.[Default].GetBytes(name))
request.Headers(System.Net.HttpRequestHeader.Authorization) = userInfo
res = serviceRequest.DownloadString(New Uri(url))

I have a very basic ACL Question.  I have set up a ACL in a VPC in AWS.  I have entered the IP addresses that I would like to have access.  I have a range of IP addresses I would like to enter, for example 215-145-203-190 to 215-145-203-206.  (Fictitious).  How do I enter that in one rule?

I am running Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS in Amazon Web Services with an Elastic IP and an inbound connection for my Static IP.

I need to simply copy files from Ubuntu (Ubuntu 14.04.5) to my local mac (running OS 10.14.2) and then copy them back, both using a Terminal window and SSH.

I've tried scp, but can't seem to get the command correct as the error I'm getting is:

"ssh: connect to host **.*.**.*.** port 22: Connection timed out" (This IP is the Elastic IP).

What am I doing wrong? Help! Thanks in advance. :-)

Hi Guys,

I'm having good fun doing my first web services and learning java, but I need your help ( again ).

Just to recap what I've done so far
1. using eclipse java ee I created Dynamic Web Project
2. I imported  a wsdl file to the project and generated web services (Top down Java bean ones)
3. I can take parameters from received requests and loaded them to Oracle database, which connection details are stored in config.properties file ( this pretty much works :) )

I've just been asked if it would be possible to grab a SOAP body and load it to an oracle table.

This is my class where web services requests are being consumed

/**

 *
 * This file was auto-generated from WSDL

Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2019 in Miami
 Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2019 in Miami

The Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2019 will be held at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Resort on October 13–16, 2019, and it promises to be the must-attend event for IT infrastructure managers, CIOs, service providers, value-added resellers, ISVs, and developers.

We have a web application that uses an external SMTP server to send emails.
We add CNAME records on our client's domain names so that the SMTP can send emails on their behalf. We don't have any issues so far, just with one of our clients in one specific situation.

If the application sends an email with our client's domain as the FROM to any email address other than their own domain, the email goes out without any issues.
If the application sends an email from any email address other than the client's domain and sends it to the clients domain, the email goes out without any issues.

BUT

If the application sends an email from an email address of our client's domain to another email address from the same domain, then the email doesn't even make it to the SMTP server. We checked the logs and there is no record of the email being processed.

What could possibly cause this?

Hello,

I generated soap web services using Eclipse JEE, which then I deployed ( .war) on Tomcat 7.0 on Centos 7 -  this works fine.
The aim is to insert a data received in an xml and insert it to an Oracle table.

I've added the below code to a java class file, which meant to do some insert statement ( which is valid ) , with hardcoded values, just to prove I can do it.

    public void InsertValue(String MessageId, String value){
    	try{

    	Connection con=null;
    	Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver");


    	con=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:xxx", "xxx","xxx");
    	Statement s = con.createStatement();

    	s.execute("INSERT INTO ping_message (message_id,dstamp) VALUES ('1',To_char(SYSDATE))");
    	con.setAutoCommit(true);
    	s.close();
    	con.close();
    	}catch(Exception e){
    	System.out.println("ERROR: "+e.getMessage());
    	}
    	}

Unfortunately, this does not work. I wonder if this is because of the java code or Tomcat needs some db drivers in order to establish a connection the database ?

btw, my java skills are being developed as I type this :)

Hi Guys,

I wonder if anyone has any experience in calling an oracle procedure/function using APIs ?
I've been reading about JDeveloper, APEX and Oracle App server and I'm a little bit confused with all my findings and the best approach.
What I need is
1. receive a SOAP API call
2. Trigger an oracle function
3. Send a response back

I have already a web server running ( hosted web app - Apache-HttpClient). However, an oracle is on a different box.

Hi,

We have a HP PageWide Pro 477dw printer which we use for scanning and printing and have no problems with printing word or excel documents.

When we go to print a report from Linkedln using our Windows 10 Pro PC, we get a page printed out which states "PCL XL Error" with "Error: InsufficientMemory".

How do we resolve this problem?

I need to convert the CURL POST command below to vba (access).  I'm very proficient with access vba but not anything web-based so any direction on learning materials would be also appreciated.  I found and modified an example that I thought might work (code below), but it just gives the error "ActiveX can't create the object.  Suggestions?

CURL COMMAND:
curl -X POST -H "Content-type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" -d '{"shop": "9999999999","client_code": "88888888888.","lastname": "Ender","phonenumber": "5555555559","vehicle_year": "1999","vehicle_make": "JEEP","vehicle_model": "something" }' http://somewebsite.com/api/customers

VBA CODE (Fails with error above):

Private Sub cmdCreateAutoTextCustomer_Click()
Dim sURL As String, sHTML As String
Dim oHttp As Object
Dim Body As String
'‘Add a reference to the MSXML type library
Set oHttp = CreateObject("MSXML3.ServerXMLHTTP")

'‘The website to post to
sURL = "http://somewebsite.com/api/customers"

'‘ The json string to send.
Body = "{""shop_number"": ""9729925026"",""client_code"": ""142KukK231k."",""lastname"": ""Ender"",""phonenumber"": ""5555555559"",""vehicle_year"": ""2009"",""vehicle_make"": ""JEEP"",""vehicle_model"": ""something"" }"

oHttp.Open "POST", sURL, False
oHttp.setRequestHeader ' "Content - type", "application / json" '
oHttp.setRequestHeader '"Accept”, "application / json"'

'‘Send the json

I've messed up. Entered an incorrect string into the Web Services Configuration under ciphers and now the cPanel will not connect saying invalid connection. How do I get into the cipher section of the Web Services Configuration using SSH and command line please? This is the silliest thing I think I've ever done on a CentOS 6.x server - it's a live server so my clients are now not able to see their websites.

I tried to move the sites on the server to another server using the Transfer tool but that fails too, saying SSL connect attempt failed - unsupported protocol.

I can ssh into the server so I'm hoping that I can resolve the issue by using SSH from the command line.

Any urgent responses greatly appreciated.

Develop a strong foundation and understanding of web design by learning HTML, CSS, and additional tools to help you develop your own website.

Need to create a page in WordPress that would connect to the API and display a search form and list of items from an external API:

Example that needs to be achieved:

http://www.pharmachoice.com/health-advice/medical-conditions

Changeable Variables:
•      strDiseaseInput – any text string (ie. cancer, blood, nose, etc.)
•      intDiseaseID – disease id
•      strAlpha – letter of the alphabet (ie. a, b, c, etc.)

Set Variables
•      intChannelID = 0
•      intLanguageId = 0 (English) / 1 (French)
•      intCountryID = 0
•      strWsKey = {removed}
•      intCaptureOne = 0
•      intCaptureTwo = 0
•      intCaptureThree = 0
•      intCaptureFour = 0

I am trying to reverse engineer someone else's Apache web server configuration setup.      

There are two RHEL 6 servers running 2.2 Apache web services.   Apache is being used to front-end a JAVA tomcat application.
On one server, the Apache log files are owned by the tomcat user.  
On the second server, the logs are owned by root.    

By corporate standards, the designated Apache log directory only allows 2 GB worth of data.   We exceed that on a regular basis and must route the logs to a subdirectory of the application and allow that application's log maintenance system to periodically archive the files.   However, the root owned log file permissions do not allow the tomcat user to perform cleanup maintenance.   Making the tomcat user the log owner resolves that problem.

ps aux show that both servers run apache using the apache user.    


I've looked in httpd.conf (and secondary files included by it)  and logrotate.d and cannot find a config file entry which explains the difference in log owner.   Can someone point me to a likely suspect?   The tomcat application's documentation does not address this problem.

Thank you.

I believe my service reference is using Triple DES encryption to communicate with one of our vendor's web services. The server we initiate the call from cannot have the 3DES cipher enabled due to PCI constraints.
How can I set my service reference in C# to use RSA instead?

I am setting up an integration with a third party.   They already have an existing POST to a former affiliate, so I ask them to just put my URL in there and hit our site.  I figured I would just deserialize the JSON and see what comes in, then code to that.  

So I created a   index.cfm file (Coldfusion 11)  on    www.mysite.com/api/order/    

The index.cfm file does nothing but email me a CFDUMP of the URL and FORM variables.
I gave the URL to the company and they hit it.   I receive the email and both CFDUMPs are empty structures.   No URL variables, no FORM variables.

They say they are doing a POST call to the site.   And are using this path:     www.mysite.com/api/order/   

They have hit it multiple times, they get a 200 OK response.   But each time, my mailed dump show empty values even though they are sending JSON over.

What am I missing?    What do I have to do differently to see the data they are sending?

Thanks!
