Siebel CRM - Version [21225] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Product Type: Siebel CRM
Version: [21225]
OS platform: IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)
DB: Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition
Env type: Test

Statement of Issue:
An outbound web service is being called and an input argument is a XML document. The problem is that when the web service is called, in the SOAP request document generated by Siebel, < and > in the XML document are automatically replaced by %lt; and %gt;. As a result, the external application is unable to parse the XML document correctly and is returning an error.
