Subject Preserve leading whitespace in XML
Date Wed, 10 Nov 2010 20:07:59 GMT

Does CXF have an issue with preserving leading whitespace inside XML
responses?  Is there something special I need to be doing?

Basically, I'm searching a file for a specific word and want to return the
line of the file that contains the word EXACTLY AS IS.  However, the leading
whitespaces are being trimmed during the conversion process to stream back
the XML.

For a document for the word file contains

            Running The Apache Tomcat 6.0 Servlet/JSP Container
Apache Tomcat 6.0 requires the Java 2 Standard Edition Runtime
Environment (JRE) version 5.0 or later.

In the java code during debug, I find that
"            Running The Apache Tomcat 6.0 Servlet/JSP Container"
is found as my string.  It preserves the leading whitespace through the
DTO's and webservices until I "return" from the webservice.  But, the XML
response contains
               <context>Running The Apache Tomcat 6.0 Servlet/JSP

...with the whitespace gone.  Is there a way to preserve it?  I'm currently
running CXF 2.2.3.

I'd appreciate any help,
