Simon Fell > Its just code > PocketSOAP and RFC 2376

Friday, April 15, 2005

Just a reminder that PocketSOAP correctly implements the RFC 2376 rules on handling the text/xml content-type (meaning its important to have the right charset attribute on the content-type header). Where as .NET's web services client engine has a bug in that it completly ignores this. If you're using a proxy which re-encodes the body, this becomes important. If you have a buggy server that doesn't include a charset attribute, this is likely why you're getting parser errors from PocketSOAP.
