Hi All,
I am trying to embedd an xml response string as CData inside an XML tree. The main XML tree is not in my control to create or change. I just have a class object where i am just setting the content as String, where the string is my xml.

The problem is when the mail xml tree appears, the content of my xml ( RawProfile ) are not properly encoded.


<ns5:PotsdamCache xmlns:ns2="" xmlns:ns3="" xmlns:ns4="" xmlns:ns5="">
<ns5:Content>&lt;![CDATA[ & l t ; RawProfile & g t ; & l t ; ROWSET type = &quot;AllLinkedParents&quot;& g t ; & l t ; /ROWSET&gt;&lt;ROWSET type = &quot;AllParents&quot;&gt;&lt;ROWSET type = &quot;organization&quot;&gt;&lt;ROW type = &quot;Raw&quot;&gt;PotsdamInstanceReference [id=546565, type=organization, code=6565, name=KID for BE Requests, parentId=0, linkedParentIds=null]&lt;/ROW&gt;&lt;ROW type = &quot;Name&quot;&gt;KID for BE Requests&lt;/ROW&gt;&lt;ROW type = &quot;Code&quot;&gt;1006565004&lt;/ROW&gt;&lt;ROW type = &quot;Id&quot;&gt;6565&lt;/ROW&gt;&lt;ROW type = &quot;ParentId&quot;&gt;0&lt;/ROW&gt;&lt;/ROWSET&gt;&lt;ROWSET...&lt;/RawProfile&gt;]]&gt;</ns5:Content></ns5:PotsdamCache>


You might not see the encode problem above, since this editor handles it, but i hope you got my point. I ma getting these & l t ; & g t ; signs.

I am simply doing the following


where my buildRawProfile method returns a string of my xml ..."<![CDATA[<RawProfile>"....."</RawProfile>]]>".

I also tried another aproach:


Document doc = parseRawProfile(buildRawProfile(userInstance), false);

// Add a CDATA section to the root element
Element element = doc.getDocumentElement();
CDATASection cdata = doc.createCDATASection(buildRawProfile(userInstance));


// Parses an XML file and returns a DOM document.
// If validating is true, the contents is validated against the DTD
// specified in the file.
public Document parseRawProfile(String rawProfile, boolean validating) {
try {
// Create a builder factory
DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();

// Create the builder and parse the file
Document doc = factory.newDocumentBuilder().parse(rawProfile);
return doc;
} catch (SAXException e) {
// A parsing error occurred; the xml input is not valid
log.debug(" A parsing error occurred; the xml input is not valid ");
} catch (ParserConfigurationException e) {
log.debug(" A parsing configuration error occurred; the xml input is not valid ");
} catch (IOException e) {
log.debug(" A parsing IOException error occurred; the xml input is not valid ");
return null;


But then got this error: [code] <faultstring>javax.ejb.EJBTransactionRolledbackException: org.apache.xerces.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl cannot be cast to javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory</faultstring>[/code]

The last approach, i didn't like so may be if someone could give a simple solution to this encoding problem.
