Subject RE: Invalid byte 2 of 2-byte UTF-8 sequence?
Date Thu, 29 Mar 2007 14:04:32 GMT
Thanks for pointing that out, I should have been able to find that one myself.
Most reasonable thing for me to do seems to apply the proposed workaround from AXISCPP-964,

In SoapSerializer.cpp, turn
serialize( "<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' ?>", NULL);
serialize( "<?xml version='1.0' encoding='ISO-8859-1' ?>", NULL);  

I'm no expert on character-encoding, but since "AxisChar" is defined in Gdefine.hpp as a normal
"char" anyway, isn't this simply the best way to fix the issue completely?

Kind regards,
