Subject [jira] Commented: (AXISCPP-964) Server response not UTF-8 encoded (but claims to be)
Date Fri, 21 Apr 2006 23:39:06 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AXISCPP-964?page=comments#action_12375652 ] 

Henrik Nordberg commented on AXISCPP-964:
-----------------------------------------

Hi Nadir,

Are you saying that the strings that the web service implementation send back, should already
be in UTF-8? Or is there a way to set the local in Apache to UTF-8 and have it do the conversion?
In short, how would I set the local to get it to work correctly, on Windows and Linux?

Thanks!
 - Henrik

> that is that the SOAP response is UTF-8 encoded. But this is only true for OS/400 as
can be seen in HTTPTransport.cpp, lines 311-

>         free(utf8Buf);
>         utf8Buf = NULL;
>         utf8Buf = toUTF8((char *)this->m_strBytesToSend.c_str(), this->m_strBytesToSend.length()+1);

> This leads to clients trying to decode the response as UTF-8, and will have errors whenever
the response contains non-ASCII characters (i.e., > 127).
> Axis Java, for example, will prduce this error upon decoding: 
> "java.io.UTFDataFormatException: Invalid byte 2 of 3-byte UTF-8 sequence."
> A simple workaround is to change SoapSerializer.cpp, line 379:
> from
> serialize( "<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' ?>", NULL);
> to
> serialize( "<?xml version='1.0' encoding='ISO-8859-1' ?>", NULL);
> The real fix, however, is to encode the response with UTF-8 for all platforms (not just
OS/400).
