Cannot avail webservice in Visual Composer

Hi all,

I defined a web service system (I'm using nw04s SP7)

http://www.webservicex.net/CurrencyConvertor.asmx?WSDL

in VC using the "Define web service system" in Tools .

I can see the alias name in the "Find Data services"

When I try to retrieve a particular operation it returns

"Failed to connect to Backend system.Check your system definition and user privileges"

This happens with almost all the web services....

I have configured my Bypass Proxy Settings as *

What can be the possible error?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Namita.

    In the blog mentioned above (/people/prakash.darji/blog/2006/10/10/external-web-service-proxy-configuration-for-visual-composer) look for the header "How do I set it up within SPS9 and higher?" where you will find a detailed explanation.

    Hi

    Please can you try using SP8 of VC and do not forget that you also have to configure the proxy in the portal.

    Hi Prakash,

    http://www.webservicex.net/CurrencyConvertor.asmx?WSDL

    this is the web service I'm trying.

    I also tried with the web service

    http://www.27seconds.com/Holidays/US/USHolidayService.asmx?WSDL

    "Basic Profile 1 compliant" -- I dont have idea about that

    Please let me know 😊

    Thanks,

    Namita.

    Please make sure to define the Proxy settings of the J2EE engine (not only in the Portal) as advised above.
