ColdFusion 2016 invoke webservice returns error - works fine on CF 9

So I am trying to migrate a site from CF 9 to CF 2016 after getting past a few issues I have run into one I can't seem to figure out. Basically I call the web service like so

<cfinvoke

webservice="#APPLICATION.SiteURL#/cfapi/webservices/Orders.cfc?wsdl"

method="QueryOrder"

returnvariable="REQUEST.XML">

<cfinvokeargument name="WebOrderNumber" value="#URL.WebOrderNumber#" />

</cfinvoke>

And it calls a page that returns an order via xml. On CF 9 it works fine. CF 2016 returns the XML but it also returns an error. The error says

This page contains the following errors:

error on line 66 at column 1: Extra content at the end of the document

Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.

Then it lists my XML but just as straight string data. Even though if you view the source it shows the exact same XML content as the CF 9 server returns. The only other error info I see is this. "Cannot perform web service invocation QueryOrder"

I'm stuck! Any ideas?

I found the issue. I had an OnRequestEnd function in my Application.cfc that was adding some white space

I know that CF isn't exactly inexpensive.  Just one of the reasons why it has been declining in popularity for a while, now.  But when you skip a generation or two and then upgrade, you're most likely going to experience issues.

I'd guess that the XML isn't as properly formed as CF12 (CF2016) would like it to be, based upon the error message.

Check the CFAdmin logs for anything that might be telling.  If that doesn't provide an idea, then surround your invoke with CFTRY/CFCATCH and use CFDUMP inside the catch to either display the cause, or have it emailed to your address.  Post it, here, and hopefully someone can spot the trouble.

HTH,

Ok i think the issue might not be with the cfinvoke itself but in the display of the xml once it is returned. The XML is at the very bottom which appears to be ok to me.

If I just cfdump the return XML it dumps out as plain text just fine. However I have this code I am using to display it as XML data and I think this cose is what is causing the problem. If I comment it out the cfcontent tag it works without error. I add the cfcontent tag back in and I get the error. Suggestions?

<cfcontent type="application/xml; charset=UTF-8">

<cfoutput>#REQUEST.XML#</cfoutput>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

That'll do it.  It should have failed in CF9, as well, but I guess CF9 isn't as pedantic as CF2016, so it let it slide.  Glad you got it fixed.

V/r,
