Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-2849) XMLSerializer is not robust to ascii control characters
Date Mon, 01 Jul 2013 19:44:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2849?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13697097#comment-13697097

Marshall Schor commented on UIMA-2849:
--------------------------------------

See also 
http://uima.apache.org/d/uimaj-2.4.0/tutorials_and_users_guides.html#ugr.tug.xmi_emf.xml_character_issues

which discusses this issue and mentions this class:
org.apache.uima.internal.util.XMLUtils

which has some methods to check strings for invalid characters.  It has some normalization
methods, but these don't include normalizing the wider range of non-xml characters that are
valid in 1.1 but not in 1.0.  

Patches for this class that enhance this functionality are most welcome!

> If any strings in the CAS contain an ascii control character the XMLSerializer fails
with exception below.  XMLSerializer appears to be escaping other invalid XML characters like
'&' and '<'.  Perhaps it would be appropriate to remove control characters (or escape
these characters as well in the case of XML 1.1).
> Workaround is to ensure all strings stored in the CAS do not contain ascii control characters.
