My name is David and i have seen that you are an experienced user of axis. I need to connect to one Web Service that have a wsdl that i can't change.=20

I am receiving strange characters in their response:

For example:

You must present a photo ID when checking in. Your credit card is charged at the time you book. Bed type and smoking preferences are not guaranteed.Your reservation is prepaid and is guaranteed for late arrival. The total charge includes all room charges and taxes, as well as fees for access and booking. Any incidental charges such as parking, phone calls, and room service will be handled directly between you and the property.

The wsdl is RPC encoded and i can only use Axis 1.4 because Axis 2 doesn't allow RPC encoded.=20

I don't know how to solve this problem because i receive many strange characters....

Do you know how to solve, including some header in the stub? The stub of axis have one method setHeader.

I have tried the following:=20

stub.setHeader("urn:thisNamespace", "charset", "ISO-8859-1"); or
stub.setHeader("urn:thisNamespace", "charset", "UTF-8");

And the result is the same.

Do you know how to solve?
