Problem conclusion

  • This problem was caused because Rational Integration Tester was
    not including the content encoding in the HTTP header for SOAP
    1.2 messages. As a result, some Unicode characters were being
    rendered improperly. This problem has been resolved in version
    8.6.0.1.
