Dynamic Webservice URL


Level 2

We have around 20 webservices deployed in a dev environment (dev1). We wanted to migrate that to a test environment and then to production.

We figured that we would have to change all our form code base to point to the webservices deployed at test1 and then to prod1 if we have to migrate from dev1 server.

Is there an easy way to do this ? we would like to read the webservices based on the machine we want at runtime and execute it ?

any suggestions ?

I know in other programming languages you read from a .properties file and do it, but not sure in form desginer ?

You can programmatically change the web service address. I have a sample but it is not available at the moment can you post your email and I will make the sample available as soon as I can.


Not applicable
Can you also email me the example when it's ready. I could really use that too. thanks.

Ok I am finally back in the office and have found the information required. Assuming the connection name in the DataView wizard is set to DataConnection, then the command to get at the soap address is:


So to set a new address use:

xfa.connectionSet.DataConnection.soapAddress.value = "http://server:port/servicename";
