Error description

  • When using the flow exerciser in the toolkit,  two issues where
    discovered:
    .
    1) A message that contained 1208 characters was corrupted when
    using the send message function of the flow exerciser.
    .
    This requires a fix to the toolkit.
    .
    2) After fixing the above, the message is sent correctly to the
    flow but the toolkit displays an error message saying failed to
    send message :
    Error sending request to http "http://localhost:7080/test"
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    .
    The second issue can cause callable flows to fail since it uses
    the same mechanism as the flow exerciser when building
    generating the message in the callable flow.
