11 posts in this topic

Hi ,

I am getting issues in posting a SOAP XML and getting/displaying the response back , here is the piece of code that i am trying to use

$xmlhttp = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")

$oXML = ObjCreate("Msxml2.DOMdocument.3.0")

$XmlSourceDO="..\BEAST_DASHBOARD\ActivationReq.xml"

$oXML.load ($XmlSourceDO)

$xmlhttp.open ("post","https://IP:Port/services/CAPWsController",false)

$xmlhttp.setRequestHeader ("Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8")

$xmlhttp.setRequestHeader ("Content-length", StringLen($oXML.xml))

$xmlhttp.setRequestHeader ("Connection", "close")

$xmlhttp.setRequestHeader ("SOAPMethodName", "processRequest")

$xmlhttp.send($oXML.xml)-----> gives an error in this line

If($xmlhttp.readyState = 4) then

$XMLResponse = $xmlhttp.responseXML.documentElement.text

$XMLResponse= $xmlhttp.responseText

EndIf

MsgBox(1,"asddf",$XMLResponse)

I have ighlightted the line where i get the error , any help is highly appreciated.

Since you are using COM related code here, and the error is not from AutoIt but the COM code, suggest you try the equivalent code using VBScript instead. VBScript is designed for COM, so you can determine if the issue is with how you call/use the COM object, or if the issue is with AutoIt's COM interface.

FYI, AutoIt's COM support isn't as good as VBScript.

Hopefully, you have some familiarity with VBScript. It's similar to AutoIt.

Dim xmlhttp, oXML
Set xmlhttp = WScript.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
Set oXML = WScript.CreateObject("Msxml2.DOMdocument.3.0")
'...more code here
xmlhttp.send(oXML.xml) 'or xmlhttp.send oXML.xml

Then run the code via command line as "cscript testScript.vbs"

If you get error still in VBScript, then you know that your COM call is incorrect where you get the error. Otherwise, either the AutoIt COM call is incorrect, and the syntax is to be written differently, or AutoIt doesn't support that particular COM object method call unfortunately.

In Vbscript it works fine.

I was trying to find the equivalent AutoIt code for it .

Guess AutoIt syntax is different, or that particular case won't work in AutoIt. Unfortunately, AutoIt is not a first class citizen as a COM client. Quite a few COM things that work under VB/VBScript won't under AutoIt, at last not w/o hours spent debugging to get the "right" syntax.

Can you convert the XML to plain text and send that? Maybe AutoIt not like the XML object.

Another thing you can try, is to set XmlHttp to another URL, which is some custom web service (or script) to do debug processing (e.g. echo back what you send it as a response). Then from there, try $xmlhttp.send($oXML.xml), $xmlhttp.send (""), $xmlhttp.send ("some text"), $xmlhttp.send ($stringVar).

That at least will tell you if the problem is with the $xmlhttp.send() or with $oXML.xml, so I think.

And also try to print out $oXML.xml to be sure that works OK too.

I am getting issues in posting a SOAP XML and getting/displaying the response back , here is the piece of code that i am trying to use

Try this:

$xmlhttp = ObjCreate("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
$oXML = ObjCreate("Msxml2.DOMdocument.3.0")
$oXML.async = False
; ---^ without this chances are good your xml haven't been parsed yet when you attempt to send it
$XmlSourceDO="..\BEAST_DASHBOARD\ActivationReq.xml"
$oXML.load ($XmlSourceDO)

$xmlhttp.open ("post","https://IP:Port/services/CAPWsController",false)
$xmlhttp.setRequestHeader ("Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8")
$xmlhttp.setRequestHeader ("Content-length", StringLen($oXML.xml))
$xmlhttp.setRequestHeader ("Connection", "close")
$xmlhttp.setRequestHeader ("SOAPMethodName", "processRequest")

$xmlhttp.send($oXML.xml)-----> gives an error in this line

If($xmlhttp.readyState = 4) then
$XMLResponse = $xmlhttp.responseXML.documentElement.text
$XMLResponse= $xmlhttp.responseText
EndIf

MsgBox(1,"asddf",$XMLResponse)

If you absolutely do not want to use vbscript, here is one way to do it using biterscripting.

# Start an internet session and connect it to server at https://IP:Port
isstart "session1" "SOAP/XML Interface" "Mozilla/4.0"
iscon "session1" "https://IP:Port" > null

# Set the header for the SOAP request.
isheadsub "session1" "Content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8" > null
isheadsub "session1" "SOAPAction: \"https://IP:Port/services/CAPWsController\"" > null
isheadsub "session1" "SOAPMethodName: processRequest" > null

# Read in the input xml into a string variable.
var str xml, out
cat "..\BEAST_DASHBOARD\ActivationReq.xml" > $xml

# Set the length of input xml in header.
isheadsub "session1" ("Content-Length: "+{chen -n $xml})> null

# Post the SOAP request to server.
ispost -w "session1" "/services/CAPWsController" ($xml1) > $out
echo $out

# SOAP Response is in string variable $out (also printed to screen for visual).
# Process it from there.

# End connection to server and close session.
isdiscon "session1" ; isend "session1"

Check the documentation for isstart, isend, ispost, etc. commands here - http://www.biterscripting.com/helppages_automatedinternet.html .

Add COM error handler to your script so it will display all the detailed errors for you.

$objErr = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc")
Func MyErrFunc()
    MsgBox(16, "CHYBA", "Při COM došlo k chybě!" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
            "Popis chyby: " & @TAB & $oIEErrorHandler.description & @CRLF & _
            "Win. popis:" & @TAB & $oIEErrorHandler.windescription & @CRLF & _
            "Číslo řádku: " & @TAB & $oIEErrorHandler.scriptline & @CRLF & _
            "Číslo chyby: " & @TAB & Hex($oIEErrorHandler.number, 8) & @CRLF & _
            "Objekt: " & @TAB & $oIEErrorHandler.source)

    SetError(1)
EndFunc

Also try to use absolute path to XML file.

You are wrong here. COM functionality is in Autoit implemented very well.

He is using it just incorrectly.

If you don't understand these things then please don't make these quick bad assumptions next time.
