IBM Web Sphere Application Server provides periodic fixes for the base and Network Deployment editions of release V8.0.
The following is a complete listing of fixes for V8.0 with the most recent fix at the top.
SAXParse Exception: An invalid XML character (Unicode: 0x1a) was found in the element content of the document.
She used it in a servlet which gets XML formatted requests.As those are generated by an external 3rd party tool we agreed on some XML schema definitions.Everything they send us needs to conform to its corresponding schema, each reply we send gets validated against a different set. St AX enables you to create bidrectional XML parsers that are fast, relatively easy to program, and have a light memory footprint.
