Hi,

I have a SOAP server developed in Apache Axis 1.4 and deployed Apache Tomcat.
I am getting SOAP requests in third party in encoded format.
That is "<" being encoded to "&lt;" and ">" to "&gt;".
As a result, I was unable to parse the SOAP XML.
I would like to know how to encode and decode tags.
And also how to encode & decode Data.

Thanks.

I am saving the SOAP body as XML, and then parsing using dom4J.

But I want to know the encoding mechanism for data encoding.

Sandeep your web service may or may not be actually returning &lt; in the SOAP message, are you getting the soap message starting with &lt;envelope&gt; ???

or only the xml message inside it has that kind of &lt; encodings, if its only the message then you need to handle this separately. if not then show the code of how you are trying to parse I can help better thanks.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

then its nothing to do with encoding your web service itself is returning the actual message with &lt; kind of tags.

Sandeep if you don't provide any code of how you are making the request or how you are handling the response there is nothing much I can help.
