Hi

Hopefully, some one can help me with this issue. I am trying to implement a global site and hence was looking for a way to detect user location. I do not want to use any ip2location webservice or download a database or ask for user to "share location".

Anyways, I found this project. I implemented it , it detects my location correctly (US). However for my friend in Germany it is returning an empty string for Country.

http://javainetlocator.sourceforge.net/. I am using jar file from here. http://sourceforge.net/projects/javainetlocator/files/ with version 2.23

I am using CF 11 and my code is on

http://roomdu.com/geolocator/

PLEASE SUGGEST ME

  <cfset ipAddress=cgi.REMOTE_ADDR>

       <cfset geoLocator=createobject("component","remoteClassPath_geoLocator")>

       <cfset Ok=geoLocator.init()>

    

              <cfset thisLocale=geoLocator.findLocale(ipAddress,cgi.HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE)>

              <cfset thisCountry=geoLocator.findCountry(ipAddress,cgi.HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE)>

              <cfset thisLanguage=geoLocator.findLanguage(ipAddress,cgi.HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE)>

              <cfset thisC=geoLocator.showCountry(ipAddress)>

              <cfset thisL=geoLocator.showLanguage(ipAddress)>

              <cfset bLocaleValid=geoLocator.isValidLocale("fr_RU")>

<cfif ok>

       <cfoutput>

       <b><h2>Not your grandmother's geoLocator Remote</h2></b>

       <hr align="left" width="30%">

It may just be that the program returns a blank for certain IPs.  Broaden the test of your code. Collect a list of IPs situated in Germany and, for each, print out the value of

geoLocator.showCountry(ipAddress)
