Subject [jira] [Resolved] (AXIS2-5736) How to prevent xml from decoding
Date Wed, 09 Dec 2015 18:49:11 GMT


Andreas Veithen resolved AXIS2-5736.
    Resolution: Invalid

SOAP is based on XML and {{<display-name>axis&axis</display-name>}} isn't
valid XML. There is no option in Axis2 to make it accept invalid XML and there will never
be such an option. The reason is that the SOAP standard is about interoperability and supporting
invalid SOAP messages would encourage people to implement systems that are not interoperable.

> Hi
> I am using AXIS2 1.6.3 and my XML is decoded when I receive it.
> As the "&" character is not allowed in XML, I have to encode it when I send a soap
request to AXIS.
> Instead of sending <display-name>axis&axis</display-name> I have to send
encoded like:
> <display-name>axis&amp;axis</display-name>
> But somewhere in AXIS it is decoded back to "&".
> How can I make sure that my XML in the soap request arrives intact to my application?
> Is there any configuration that I have to apply or this is not AXIS issue?
