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.

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