I am getting a XML parsing error from weblogic.apache.xerces when I parse a XML document which contains accented characters.
This is what I am doing 1) Some database columns have accented data for spanish,japanese etc languages like NÃmero de identificaÃÃo: and nÃmero de identificaciÃn. 2) I am reading this data and creating a XML file using some processing and then writing the file on the disc using weblogic.xml.stream.XMLOutputStream flush() method. 3) Then I am using FOP to render this XML in PDF. In the rendering process the weblogic.apache.xerces.XMLparser gets called to parse the XML. Here the parser throws a org.xml.sax.SAXParserException ( An invalid XML character (Unicode: 0xfa) was found in the element content of the document). I was under the impression that XMLParser should take care of the accented characters. When I open the XML file which I created in XML SPY I see "box" characters like "cliente nï de identificaciò". Please let me know how should i handle my code here. Thanks Manoj Thanks
