Subject Re: SOAP API and whitespace
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2014 20:14:51 GMT
Okay, did some more poking and I need to update my observation.  I thought
it was the resetting of ignoreWhitespace that was causing things to
revert.  Actually it was the resetting of the prettyPrinting setting to
it's original value (of true) at line 175.  So ultimately my current
workaround is to make sure pretty printing stays set to false.  But there
has to be a way to have trailing spaces in string values.  I am assuming
that the string values are properly escaped as a xml string value, since we
are encoding everything.
