Hi guys,

I do not understand why I am having this problem when I try to search some data in my api using & as string in field:

In soapui, I have this values:

There is a owner with "&" in string. But when I try to search, my response is:

Mon Jan 30 13:37:52 BRST 2012:ERROR:An error occured [The entity name must immediately follow the '&' in the entity reference.], see error log for details

do someone have passed by this problem? any idea how to fix?

<serviceFilterValue>Admin&strator </serviceFilterValue>

Ampersand in text node should be written in escaped form (no hyphen below):
<serviceFilterValue>Admin&-a-m-p;strator </serviceFilterValue>
Or, in cdata section, it can be in unescaped form.
<serviceFilterValue><![CDATA[Admin&strator ]]></serviceFilterValue>
