Subject [jira] Commented: (CXF-1289) XML contains binary data (ASCII 27, ^[, ESC)
Date Sat, 15 Dec 2007 15:40:43 GMT


Benson Margulies commented on CXF-1289:

By the way, I have the bruises to show in this area. I used to routinely assume that any old
String could be sent over a web service, and then I met the Microsoft XML parsers, which are
strict with respect to XML 1.0. They reject characters outside the inventory I quoted before.
So, we switched all our services to using base64 when we needed to transmit arbitrary character
data. Some parsers may be more tolerant than others, but I've never met one thought that entity
syntax was any better than anything else.

> I've got a SOAP request that results in a string with an ESCAPE code (ASCII 27, ^[, ESC),
and it isn't being transformed in to XML properly. CXF leaves it as its binary value, instead
of converting to &#27; or &#x1B;
