    Problem while creating a service to consume an xml web page

    Hi, I am following the course and I'm right now at the capter 3 "Connecting to External Data Sources with ThingWorx 6.5"; when I have to create a Service to consume an xml web page I have some issue:

    I'm following the guide

    • Type ACMEV in the spotlight search field.
    • Select AcmeVendingCorp.
    • Click the Services link.
    • Click the Add My Service button.
    • Type GetThingWorxFeed in the Name field.
    • Type This service will retrieve the ThingWorx RSS Feed in the Description field.
    • Select the Inputs/Outputs tab.
    • Type Resulting Table in the Description field.
    • Click the Base Type drop-down list to expand it.
    • Select INFOTABLE.
    • Select the Snippets tab.
    • Click under the left-most scroll bar to scroll down to ContentLoaderFunctions.
    • Select ContentLoaderFunctions.
    • Click the Add button for the GetXML snippet.
    • Edit the URL parameter line to url: "http://www.ptc.com/feed/press",
    • Click the Done button.
    • Click the Save button.


    Then I'm supposed to go on http://www.ptc.com/feed/press with my browser but it redirects me on the page www.ptc.com/news; I can't see any xml.


    Plus, if I go further to the end, according to the video, I should see this message

    Unable To Convert From com.sun.org.apache.xerces.internal.dom.DocumentImpl to INFOTABLE

    but what I see is:

    Wrapped org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; lineNumber: 1; columnNumber: 10; DOCTYPE non è consentito se la funzione "http://apache.org/xml/features/disallow-doctype-decl" è impostata su true. Cause: DOCTYPE non è consentito se la funzione "http://apache.org/xml/features/disallow-doctype-decl" è impostata su true.


    May you help me to understand where the problem is?
