Hi all,

We have a headache issue. We have a VB application on Windows, the application needs to transfer a xml data file to servlets on Tomcat 4.0.3 server (Linux system). Currently, we need to update to Tomcat 5. However, when we finished the updating, we found the transfered xml data file that servlets on Tomcat 5 got was incorrect (part of xml file). We could not figure out what was wrong with the updating to Tomcat 5. Any body can give us a help? We very appreciate. Thank you in advance.

Is the Tomcat servlet just receiving the file as text or is it parsing the input stream as XML on the fly?
If there is a parsing error you should be getting some sort of informative exception.

Hi Bill,

Thank you very much for your response. The Tomcat servlets will parse the imputted XML stream and extract its data. However, it seems the servlets cannot correctly parse the imputted XML data. From searching from internet, it seems Tomcat 5 and Tomcat 4 use diffirent parse lib. Is it correct?
