It's been a while since I posted an entry.  The end of the month is a very busy time for us as we try to tie up loose ends as the invoicing cycle comes to a close so I've not had a lot of chance to post lately.

I'm just about to head to the airport to begin the journey home for the weekend but I wanted to share a tidbit of info on something I've been working on this week.  A project I'm working on required ColdFusion to connect to an external web service and retrieve a bit of data.  We've been going round and round this week trying to figure out why ColdFusion is choking on the return that includes an array of items.

We don't have a definitive answer yet, but it seems that ColdFusion doesn't play well with complex data types returned from non-ColdFusion web services and barfs badly when trying to deserialize the SOAP response it receives.

Anyway, when we finally do find and answer/workaround for this, I'll post back what we find.
