Using SOAP Attachment from Coldfusion

Posted by wrvishnu on August 22, 2008

I came accros the issue on accessing the java web service which will return SOAP attachment . Tried goole to check whether there are any implementation using coldfusion but we could’t find . So we decided to use SAAJ API to get the soap attachment

Follwoing are the steps i used

Get these saaj-api.jar , saaj-impl.jar jar file  can be get from https://saaj.dev.java.net/

copied the jar file in coldfusion lib directory

// create byte array. read up to the first
// 1024 bytes (or however many) into the array
byteClass = createObject(“java”, “java.lang.Byte”).TYPE;
byteArray = createObject(“java”,”java.lang.reflect.Array”).newInstance(byteClass, javacast(“int”, 1024));
length = inputStream.read(byteArray);

// if there is any data to read
offset = 0;
while ( length GT 0) {
outStream.write( byteArray, offset, length );
length = inputStream.read( byteArray );


FileWrite( saveToFileName, outStream.toByteArray() );
<!— Write the file from the attachment to the mentioned location starts  here—->


Using this we saved the SOAP attachment to the file server .

If anyone think about the alternative way or any suggetion for improvment are welcome

Suggest Coldfusion .Net integration

Posted by wrvishnu on October 18, 2007

Hi All

I would like you to suggest some samples that you required  using  Coldfusion and .Net integration.

Accessing the .Net UI controls  will not be accessible in Coldfusion any example using .Net ui cannot be done in coldfusion

Why wait post you suggestion in comment section….

Downlaod EventViewer Log and Save in Database

Posted by wrvishnu on October 6, 2007

This Article describe how to get the event viewer log and clear the data from .Net and Save the event viewer into database in Coldfusion

To do this we need to create a class in .Net which will get the event viewer log and clear the entry and return the data as datatable which can be used from coldfusion and save the same in databasse

Create the table using the query below


.Net Code

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Data;
using System.Diagnostics;
public class EvtViewerSample
public DataTable getEventviewer(String EventLogName)
// Create the object for EventLog
EventLog ev = new EventLog(EventLogName, System.Environment.MachineName, "MyAppName");

//Create the columns for the datatable
DataTable CSDT = new DataTable();


// Loop through the data and add a row
foreach (EventLogEntry entry in ev.Entries)

DataRow drdummy = CSDT.NewRow();
drdummy["EventId"] = entry.InstanceId.ToString();
drdummy["Message"] = entry.Message.ToString();
drdummy["EntryType"] = entry.EntryType.ToString();
drdummy["Time"] = entry.TimeGenerated.ToString();

ev.Clear(); // Clear the log information
ev.Close(); // Close the connection

return CSDT;
catch (Exception ex)
throw ex;

.Net hashtable can be used as a Structure in coldfusion, below snippets explains the steps  

This Sample is for accessing the .Net Hashtable in Coldfusion

 Steps to be Followed

Create a Class Library which generate  Hashtable (collection or structure)

Call the .Net method from Coldfusion

.Net Code

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Collections;
public class HashTableDemo
public HashTableDemo()
public Hashtable getInfo()
Hashtable HTdemo = new Hashtable();
HTdemo.Add("Name","Vishnuprasad" );
HTdemo.Add("Age", 29);
HTdemo.Add("Sex", "Male");
HTdemo.Add("Mobile", 9884077182);
HTdemo.Add("Email", "demo@demo.com");
HTdemo.Add("SkillSet", "Coldfusion, .Net , SQL Server, ORacle , Business Objects");
return HTdemo;



Above code will generate the DLL which needs to be used in Coldfusion as mentioned below with the path
CFM Code

type = "dotnet"
name = "Htdemo"
class = "HashTableDemo"
assembly ="d:/Vishnu/HashTableDemo.dll">
<cfset HCollection = #Htdemo.getInfo()#><cfoutput>
<table cellpadding = "2 " cellspacing = "2 ">
<!--- In cfloop, use item to create a variable
called person to hold value of key as loop runs --->
<cfloop collection = #HCollection# item = "Value">
<TD>#StructFind(HCollection, Value)#</TD>

Dim lblDMBase As String
  lblDMBase = PCname
  REM opens a connection to the local machine. It does not necessarily need to be
  REM the machine the web page is running on.
  Dim adsComputer As New DirectoryEntry(lblDMBase)
  Dim adsUser As DirectoryEntry
  REM Open a connection to the Group
  Dim adsGroup As New DirectoryEntry(lblDMBase & "/Users")
  REM You can also open the object by:
  'Dim adsGroup As DirectoryEntry
  'adsGroup.Path = lblDMBase & "/Users"
  REM Add a user to the defined computer object
  adsUser = adsComputer.Children.Add(uname, "User")
  REM Populate the FullName and Description Properties
  REM Set the password (a random password function would be good here).
  adsUser.Invoke("SetPassword", pass)
  REM Identical to .SetInfo
REM Add the User to the Group
  adsGroup.Invoke("Add", New Object() {adsUser.Path.ToString()})
outputval = "User Created"
  Catch ex As Exception
  outputval = ex.Message.ToString()
  End Try
  Return outputval

Coldfusion & .Net Integeration

Posted by wrvishnu on September 12, 2007

This is a sample code snippet for Coldfusion and .Net intgeration

To access the .net methods first we need to create an object for the .Net  Class , after creating the object we can access the methods in that class . Following is a sample code snippet for accessing the .net methods from coldfusion

Steps to work on the samples
Step 1 Copy the Access MDB file into the “D:\LEarning\CFDotNet\Northwind.mdb”

Step 2 Create the .Net Class Library in Visual studio 2005 , below is the code snippet

// This Code is developed in .net 2005
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.IO;
using System.Collections;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.OleDb;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
public class CfSample{
public CfSample()
public int SampAdding(int a, int b)
int c;
c = a + b;
return c;
public int SampSubtract(int a, int b)
int c;
c = a - b;
return c;
public int SampMultiply(int a, int b)
int c;
c = a * b;
return c;
public DataTable ACCdatasetMethod()
//conn string
string connectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=D:\\LEarning\\CFDotNet\\Northwind.mdb" ;
using (OleDbConnection connection = new OleDbConnection(connectionString))
OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(@"SELECT [EmployeeID], [LastName], [FirstName], [Title], [City], [Address], [HireDate], [BirthDate], [TitleOfCourtesy], [Region], [PostalCode], [Country], [HomePhone] FROM [Employees]", connection);
OleDbDataReader reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
return dt;

Step 3 Compile the Visual studio solution

Step 4 Copy the generated DLL file in any path or can use the same path where it got generated

Step 5 Call the .Net method in Coldfusion

type = “dotnet”
name = “MDBDTable”
class = “CfSample”
assembly = “D:/vishnu/CfSample.dll”>
<cfset query11 = MDBDTable.ACCdatasetMethod()>
<cfdump var=”#query11#”>

Please get the sample files from the location http://www.drivehq.com/folder/p2544729.aspx
