Abstract

OSP-IWS CLIENT ENCAPSULATES AN EMBEDDED XML WITH ![CDATA[...]]
WITH INCORRECT ENCODING

Error Description

A web service client request is using embedded XML.            
                                                               
With level 19 the embedded XML was html encoded:                
<ns1:data>&lt;?xml version=&quot;1.0&quot;                      
encoding=&quot;iso-8859-1&quot;?&gt;                            
                                                               
With level 20 the embedded XML was encoded using ![CDATA[...]]  
however with incorrect characters:                              
<ns1:data>< ?CDATA?<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>  
                                                               
this causes the request to fail                                

Problem Summary

A web service client request is using embedded XML.            
                                                               
With level 19 the embedded XML was html encoded: <ns1:data><?xml
version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>                          
                                                               
With level 20 the embedded XML was encoded using ![CDATA[...]]  
however with incorrect characters:                              
<ns1:data>< ?CDATA?<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>  
                                                               
this causes the request to fail                                

Problem Conclusion

The CDATA tag that is used to encapsulate the XML element needs
to be converted to the CCSID of the job since some characters in
![CDATA[...]] are not invariant.                                
                                                               
This problem has been corrected.
