DCA-40012: The Web Service call failed. A connection to the target Web Service could not be created. (Doc ID 1471810.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 07, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.4.0 to 11.1.1.5.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This note provides suggestions for the error DCA-40012 in WebCenter Portal 11.1.1.4/11.1.1.5.

The error occurs when trying to display a custom taskflow in a WebCenter Portal page that consume a web service data control.

Steps To Reproduce:

  1. In JDeveloper, create a new application with a web service data control to any SOAP web service. Then create a simple fragment task flow that displays the results a call to one of the methods.
  2. Deploy this task flow to WebCenter Space (create a wrapper WAR file and deploy as a shared library to WC_Spaces, then reference the library in DesignWebCenterSpaces application).
  3. In Spaces runtime, add the new task flow to a resource catalog, then add the task flow to a page in a space. At this point the page will either freeze or an error will occur.
  4. Looking in the logs for WC_Spaces.out, it seems that there is some problem with the way the connection details have been deployed as the following is shown:

    <Warning> <oracle.adf.adapterDC.webservice> <BEA-000000> <Verify if the connections.xml has valid metadata defined for connection 'spaces'>


Shortly afterward, the following is then shown:

<Error> <oracle.adf.model.adapter> <BEA-000000> <Exception: oracle.adf.model.adapter.AdapterException: DCA-40012: The Web Service call failed. A connection to the target Web Service could not be created.

 

Testing the task flow locally in the integrated WebLogic works as expected.
