Re: JAX-RPC special character (like ampersand) encoding question

The problem occurs when the JAX-RPC runtime replaces the '&' with
&amp;&amp; so it can send it over the wire, on the other end the
server/client has no way to determine if the original string was
"Peter & Marry" or "Peter &amp;&amp; Mary" so it does not try to
modify it. If you want the original string back you will need to convert
it back yourself.
