Problem conclusion

  • When handling SOAP response message, JAX-WS runtime did not
    remove leading and trailing white space for encoding a value
    before passing it to the XML parser, then the unsupported
    encoding exception was thrown by the XML parser.
    
    The JAX-WS runtime is changed to strip off leading and
    trailing white space for encoding a value and passes it to the
    XML parser.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.29, 8.0.0.6 and 8.5.0.2.  Please refer to the
