- Jan 17, 2002Hi everybody!
I'm developing an integration module between intershop4 and a scala
system using the soap::lite module. What I'm doing is the client
that works in the background of the intershop-system (that is a kind
of application server). This client retreivs data from a ms soap-
toolkit sitting ontop of a ms sql-server.
The data in the ms-sql server is in the estonian and lettian
language, and contains a lot of special charachters and stuff. As
far as I know, it's stored in unicode there. I should perhaps
mention that I'm not that experienced when it comes to charcher-
encodings and such.
Well, the responses I get from the server are, according to the xml-
declaration, utf-8. Though, when i print it in a terminal window or
to the browser through the application server, the text is garbeld.
I've understood that utf-8 is not usually used in web-pages or such?
If I right click the page and choses encoding utf-8 instead, the
page is displayed ok though.
My question is really how these things are normally solved? When I
use for example the exerces xml-parser for java, the response I get
back is translated into unicode, so this isn't a problem. Can Soap-
lite or xml::parser do that as well? Or do I explicitly have to
translate everything I pick out from the response to unicode with
some other perl-module?
I'd be really grateful for any help in this!
