I program scripts to read XML posts just every once-and-awhile, and although very simple, every-time I forget how to do it.
Let’s say that we receive a XML HTTP POST via this code:
<cfhttp url="http://yourdomain.com/xml.cfm" method="post"> <cfhttpparam type="XML" name="MyXML" value="#myxml#"> </cfhttp>
This is what you would use to read that POST:
<cfset xmlPOST = GetHTTPRequestData().content> <cfset xmlDOM = XmlParse(xmlPOST)>
The key here is the GetHTTPRequestData().content. Notice how we do not use form.MyXML.
Now we can manipulate the XML data using standard dot notation such as xmlDOM.Content.Value.XMLText.
