soap:Fault; debug web service; add custom assembly referen

Postby awellner » Thu Jul 27, 2006 2:11 pm


I have been trying to test my web service, but each time I am running it I get soap fault. I have created a web reference and my class Inherits from Control.VirtualClient.

When I test the same code with VB .net 1.1, local host reference (no network issues). It works fine. However, similar code, just warped with Ants Control.VirtualClient doesn’t work and I am getting this soap exception. <soap:Fault> <faultcode>soap:Client</faultcode>. Meaning the client couldn’t create the soap request.

1. What are the settings I need to set in the Control.VirtualClient?
2. How can I debug the web service?
3. How can I add custom assembly reference in the VBA?

I am adding the soap exception code:

WebService http://localhost/EcoWinUtils/Service.asmx SoapRequest : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:soap=""> <soap:Body> <GetEWSeries xmlns=""> <EWUtils_GetEWSeries_Request_1_0 xmlns="">ew:arp12630</EWUtils_GetEWSeries_Request_1_0> </GetEWSeries> </soap:Body> </soap:Envelope> SoapResponse : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd=""> <soap:Body> <soap:Fault> <faultcode>soap:Client</faultcode> <faultstring>The request element &amp;lt;GetEWSeries xmlns=''&amp;gt; was not recognized.</faultstring> <detail /> </soap:Fault> </soap:Body> </soap:Envelope>

I beleived I have already replied to you by email. There is a method that you need to follow to be able to reference external assemblies in ANTS Load which I've sent you the information about. The SOAP FAULT issue is something specific to your environment, I think, so it wouldn't be terribly beneficial to discuss it here.
