I haven't tried that... I might see what that gets me.
What I ended up doing was this:

res.setContentType("text/xml; charset=UTF-8");

byte[] result = xmlrpc.execute(req.getInputStream());
PrintStream out = new PrintStream(res.getOutputStream());
out.println(new String(result, "utf-8"));

I however, could not send the content-length because it was generating
incorrect results after the PrintStream was done with it.


I'm not 100% sure this is the correct solution, but it seems to work.
