#text is the name of a text node in the DOM.

Any DOM manipulation going on?

there is but we are passing it into the method as a string..
so that shouldn't be the problem..
the odd thing is... if I run the same thing in a java class it works fine..
when I then take that same code and run it from jsp I get this added chaos...
no idea why...
got anything?
thanks

Could be caused by either Javascript manipulation (which I think you'd be aware of), or by generating your output by parsing an XML tree.  Depending on the XML parser used (classpath dependent) toString on a node can produce different output.  Sometimes usefully outputting the text version of an element and all it's descendents; while other implementations may produce output like you're seeing.

So... what's involved here, XML or Javascript? (place your bets now...)

Sounds like the classpath for your app server is picking up a different XML parser...

no javascipt
and no xml...
it comes in as xml and then we substring it to get pure string and then pass along the stings..
that's the problem...
any ideas?

You don't use an XML parser?

If you were using an XML parser I'd say there's somewhere in your code you're calling toString (possibly implicitly) instead of using getNodeValue().

Class.forName("com.microsoft.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver");

            // Connection string database
            String url = "jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://" + strDataSource + ";User=" + strUser +";Password=" + strPass ;


            //Connect to dstrParamatabase
            c = DriverManager.getConnection(url);

this works fine in java but in jsp it prints out some nasty stuff like...

url = "jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://[#text: server];User=[#text: User];Password=[#text: Pass]";

any ideas?

Which xml parser do you THINK you are using when you try it as .jsp...
