Refreshing Coldfusion Web Service Stubs

Posted by Luis Majano
06 Sep 2005 12:00 AM
Coldfusion introduced the use of web services in coldfusion MX and what a great feature. However, there are some intricacies on this feature. Web Service stubs, stubs are created by Java in order to define the signature of a web service. This holds the request and response headers, the arguments and their data types. So if a change in signature occurs, the stubs need to be refreshed or recreated. You can either do this programmatically or manually.

Most of the time the programatic approach will work, but sometimes these little bastards persist. So you have to follow a procedure and clean them out. Below you will find the programmatic way first:

<cfobject type="JAVA"

action="Create"

name="factory"

class="coldfusion.server.ServiceFactory">


<cfset RpcService = factory.XmlRpcService>


<cfset RpcService.refreshWebService("http://testwebsite/webservice/myservice.cfc?wsdl")>

NetDebugger and CF Flash Forms

Posted by Luis Majano

This entry is to enlighten those who need to enable the Flash Remoting NetDebugger using CF Flash Forms. By default, coldfusion has the flex debuggin off, so you either have to tweak the flex settings or programmatically activate the debugging.

I would not recommend the first solution on a production environment, due to the nature of somebody peaking in to your requests and responses. However, for development is fine. So to start, find the following file: flex-config.xml which can be found under the following directory:

{CF_ROOT}/WEB-INF/cfform/flex-config.xml

Open the xml file and locate the following section:

<!-- When production-mode=true, the debugging options are always

false and may not be set. -->

<debugging>


<!-- allow override of values in debugging section via

query parameter on a per-request basis, if applicable -->

<process-debug-query-params>true</process-debug-query-params>
......

</debugging>

This is the flex debuggin configuration. So in order to activate the debugger change the following entries to true.

<!-- turn on debug to see the request and response on the server side as well

as debug information in client side tracing -->

<remote-objects-debug>false</remote-objects-debug>


<!-- turn on debug to see the request and response on the server side as well

as debug information in client side tracing -->

<web-service-proxy-debug>false</web-service-proxy-debug>


<!-- turn on debug to see the request and response on the server side -->

<http-service-proxy-debug>false</http-service-proxy-debug>

My First Blog

Hi and welcome to my blog. This is my first time blogging and all thanks to Ray Camden's BlogCFC.

It is a great tool, a basic plug and play application. However, I took the liberty of modifying some of the Look And Feel. I created a new podlayout on the left and use my own site's css. And well, added a few tweaks here and there.

Overall BlogCFC is an incredible tool. As a software engineer I found the code to be extremely well organized and everything where it should be. So a big applause for Mr Ray Camden.

I will start posting my software ideas and personal notes in this blog, so feel free to comment all you want. Suggestions are always welcomed.
