Hi All,
How Servlet can accept XML request & send back XML response??
In my application I have to build a Servlet which should take request in XML format from Other Server & pass it to EJB for processing & recieve response in XML format & send it back to the other Server..
Any suggestion,
Thanks in advance...

sure... in your response simply set the ContentType to "text/xml"
Also, Please adjust your Displayed Name to meet the JavaRanch Naming Policy -- particularly it should be a first name, space, full last name (not initial). You can change it here.

Hi Jessica ,
You are right about Response ContentType.
But my problem is that I am getting request from other server(IIS not from HTML Browser) in the form of a String(which contains XML content).
So,how will I accept this Request(I don't know the name of String as it's dynamiclly generated so Request.getParameter("Name"); will not work) & sends back the Response(again String containing XML content).
I have changed my Displayed name..
Sorry,if am asking stupid Questions..

You can read the content of the request as an InputStream and handle it just as if you were reading a file.
InputStream is = req.getInputStream();
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
