Hi Brian,

Thanks for your message.  Good luck with your upgrade - I hope it goes smoothly!

I'll check out the trace log - might be more details there.

When we were doing the initial development, the other developers who wrote the web services we connect to changed their API calls a few times, so we've re-run the web services wizard a few times.  I think we're up to version 4.  We had similar issues where the old one worked but the new one didn't.  At the time I just put it down to a caching problem - we often deleted the java cache file and restarted Omnis, and then it would come good.

It worked great during the session in which that object was created, but now we can’t get it to run from within Omnis a day later… the call to the service returns an error code of -1. The older web service object still performs fine. Strange, indeed…
