Hi All,

I am using SAAJ and JAXM API implementations. When I send request soap message to the service I am getting back response soap message from the service but the client is abnormally terminating with exception "SAAJ0537: Invalid Content-Type. Could be an error message instead of a SOAP message". The details are hereunder.

Can anyone please tell me why I am getting this exception. As you see my client and service soap message consrtruction, I am using the same soap message for sending and receiving. Also, I see there are some junk characters like "179", "0" in my response soap message. I dont why they are generated by JAXM/SAAJ API

Response SOAP Message

Exception on Client Side

Thanks & Regards,
