CDATA Element Not Generated in XSL Transformation

(Doc ID 2398612.1)

Applies to:

Oracle SOA Suite - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : version, BPEL Service Engine

An XML message contains special characters, such as '&','<' and '>'. In a BPEL transform activity, xsl:output is used with cdata-section-elements to enclose data containing these characters in a CDATA tag. After generation, the target XML does not show the data enclosed in the tag. 

The same XML message run through a different IDE generates the desired output.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. BPEL executes the transformation.
2. Pass through source XML document.
3. Check target XML for resulting transformation.
