    Attachment: PATCH_2342.txt

Hi All!

We run in the same problems... :o(
I have fixed this issue and promote the patch and the Test (separat). The patch ist tested
with special german characters "ä ö ü ß Ä Ö Ü".

>          URL:
>      Project: Apache Axis
>         Type: Bug
>   Components: Serialization/Deserialization
>     Versions: 1.0

> We are using SOAP to send XML documents from client to server and back. The 
> documents contain a lot of non-ASCII data. This is encoded as UTF-8 by us. 
> However, when retrieved from an Axis server, Axis will escape almost all of our 
> characters into character entities (so &#...;) This means messages become about 
> three times as big as they have to for 'international' documents, which for us 
> is a large performance problem. I narrowed down the problem to
>   XMLUtils::xmlEncodeString
> that has the code:
>                 if (((int)chars[i]) > 127) {
>                         strBuf.append("&#");
>                         strBuf.append((int)chars[i]);
>                         strBuf.append(";");
> This seems unnecessary to me, as Axis will send all messages in UTF-8 anyway, 
> for which no encoding is necessary (and should encoding be configurable, I feel 
> this should be escaped elsewhere).
> Is there any reason for this code, I commented it out and it seemed to have no 
> adverse effect on our application (apart from reduced network traffic)?
> Tested with 1.0, also looked up in the sources of 1.1-rc2.
