I am working on my first cXML implementation and have a question. I have
setup a test VB program to send a request to my ASP page. Seems like I can
get the xml sent to the ASP, as I can return it immediately and my VB program
has the correct response.xml. Here's the code from my VB program:


Set fso = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")
Set file = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\request.xml")

'Read in xml from file
Do While Not file.AtEndOfStream
xmlRequest = xmlRequest & file.readline
Set file = Nothing
Set fso = Nothing

Set xmlDOM = New MSXML2.DOMDocument

'Load xml into dom
xmlDOM.loadXML xmlRequest

oHTTP.open "POST", "http://drancour/cxml/punchoutrequest.asp", False
oHTTP.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "text/xml"
oHTTP.send xmlDOM.xml

Now, when on the serverside ASP page, I have to receive this xml, grab a
couple of nodes (username and password fields). Then evaluate those and return
cXML indicating whether or not the login credentials are valid. However,
if login is successful I seem to be only able to evaluate the oHTTP object's
responseBody or responseText to get the xml from my web page. I would like
to populate the responseXML property from the page so that it can be loaded
into a dom on the client side once it is received. Here is the ASP code:

set xmlDOM = server.createobject("msxml2.domdocument")

xmlDOM.async = false

'Evaluate the login info....

'Assume login is OK, this would be xml to be returned to client
xmlReturn = "<?xml version=""1.0"" encoding=""UTF-8"" ?>" & _
"<!DOCTYPE cXML (View Source for full doctype...)>" & _
"<cXML payloadID=""456778199@cxml.workchairs.com"" xml:lang=""enUS"" timestamp=""19990312T18:39:0908:00""
version=""1.1.009"">" & _
"<Response>" & _
"<Status code=""200"" text=""OK"" />" & _
"<PunchOutSetupResponse>" & _
"<StartPage>" & _
"<URL>http://premier.workchairs.com/store?23423SDFSDF23</URL>" & _
"</StartPage>" & _
"</PunchOutSetupResponse>" & _
"</Response>" & _

xmldom.loadxml xmlReturn
Response.ContentType = "text/xml"
response.binarywrite xmldom.xml

Again, this only results in being able to grab the responseText property
of the XMLHTTP object on the client side. What do I do in the ASP to get
the xml to be available to the client in the responseXML property of the
XMLHTTP object??

Thanks in advance!!
