My question is how can I contact your demos using a client vfp9 SP1 program without a browser.
I downloaded v4 demo today and have everything working ok, including getting the 'hello' demo to work from a different IP address over the Internet. When I first installed, I got errors because some of the PRG's are not being copied from the 'program files'
demo to my setup. That was an easy one.
I have had a SOAP3 / VFP9 SP1 server working for some time. At this time, I contact my com server using something like the demo that ships with VFP9 in the help. It 'talks' to a wsdl web page like this:
loWSHandler = Newobject("WSHandler",Iif(Version(2)=0,"",Home()+"FFC\")+"_ws3client.vcx")
loMywebsiteClients = loWSHandler.SetupClient("http://www.Mywebsitesoftware.com/webservices/MywebsiteClients.wsdl", "MywebsiteClients", "MywebsiteClientsSoapPort")
luResult = loMywebsiteClients.MywebsiteWeb("test")
luResult = loMywebsiteClients.MywebsiteLogin("test","test")
luResult = loMywebsiteClients.MywebsiteGetNonce()
In this sample, I am calling methods in the com named MywebsiteWeb, MywebsiteLogin, MywebsiteGetNonce. This works well.
In the VFP examples, I have an 'asp' listener so I think it must be possible, but I have not been able to get the asp page to work, even though regular asp pages with jscript and vbscript work normally.
I am interested in converting some things to ActiveVFP because it appears to have more & better functions with less trouble. My question is regarding the client. Your demos seem to all be using a browser for the client: http://webpage.aspx?action=hello,
etc. I would like to be able to accomplish this same function using a client VFP SP1 program. I do not want a browser screen to appear. For example, something I cannot do now: I want to use basic authentication with the Windows name/password using https (I
now have a SSL certificate on my web site and it works well from a browser).
