VBScript sample: POST of XML data to an Accessible Queue

Below, there’s a standalone VBScript example of calling eFORMz API, specifically the POST of XML data to an Accessible Queue. This example includes the creation of the XML data using objects in place of the problematic strings.Replacing the text1 line with:

set text1 = xdoc.createTextNode("TITLE & stuff") 

Yields the following XML data:



option explicit
 'On Error Resume Next
 Function CallWebService(URL, ConfigurationName, QueueName, NameTemplate, strRequest)
     dim strUrl
     dim http
     dim Cfg
     dim Queue
     dim Name
 Cfg = "&ConfigurationName=" & ConfigurationName Queue = "&QueueName=" + QueueName Name = "&NameTemplate=" + NameTemplate Const EFZAPI = "/servlet/com.minisoft.AppServer.AppServer?APP=com.minisoft.eformz.eFORMzApp" Const DIRECTOR = "&director&Host=localhost&Port=9996&User=minisoft&Password=password" Const SXH_SERVER_CERT_IGNORE_ALL_SERVER_ERRORS = 13056 strUrl = URL + EFZAPI + DIRECTOR + Cfg + Queue + Name set http=CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.3.0") http.SetOption(2) = SXH_SERVER_CERT_IGNORE_ALL_SERVER_ERRORS "POST",strUrl,false http.setRequestHeader "Content-Type","text/xml" http.send strRequest If http.Status = 200 Then     'WScript.Echo "STATUS : " & http.status     'WScript.Echo "RESPONSE : " & http.responseText else     WScript.Echo "STATUS : " & http.status     WScript.Echo "RESPONSE : " & http.responseText End If
 End Function
