Has anybody successfully published an Alexa Skill in ColdFusion. In particular, I am looking for someone who knows how to get through the signature verification requirements. Any help is greatly appreciated. I have a number of skills in development ready to go, if I can just get this figured out.
Since you refer to a problem with ssl verification, perhaps your problem is simply that your running cf on Java 7. In that case, the issue is between that (which cfhttp calls upon to reach a given url) and the server being called (if it may require tls 1.2, for instance) .
What version of cf and Java are you running? See the settings summary in the cf admin.
As for updating cf's Java, or for more code showing using Alexa with cf, Google shows many easily found resources, or ask away here.
Thanks for the response. I'm running cf11 (184.108.40.2067976) Java version 1.8.0_25 on Windows Server 2008 and also Server 2012.
I'm sorry, but I disagree that there are many easily found resources when it comes to getting the skill to a published status. If you could point to any google search of cf code passing the functional test, I would be thrilled. i was hoping someone has put together a set of functions using the BouncyCastle library calls. This is Amazons requirements for getting certified and published
Thanks again for the response.
I had an incredible amount of difficulty with this as well. In the end, I ended up writing api calls to my app in node on Lamda. Lamda passes automatically. Hopefully you get a better response, it would be nice to see this working as a pure cf solution.
