Subject Re: axis 1.4 non ascii chars issue
Date Thu, 28 Jul 2011 02:42:38 GMT

Hi all,

Apache axis 1.4 related UTF8Encoder class does not write the non-ASCII
characters as they are in the xml response as the class does the following

    if (character > 0x7F){

Does any one know if this issue is already taken care of already in Axis2?
if not, wondering if there is work around already.

Thanks in advance for your valuable input.
