    Parsing a FML tuxedo buffer in SALT

      When I call a Tuxedo service trough SALT and it returns a failure it sends a XML within a FML buffer with the type string and it contains an invalid character (0x1). So when I parse the fault message in the other end I get a ParseError. The invalid character is generated from some old program that uses hexadecimal character as a delimiter. I don’t want change the old program because it has too many dependencies.

      How can I modify the buffer and replace the invalid character in SALT runtime?

      I read some about plug-ins but haven’t found any good information about it. I also found the release of tuxedo 10r3 with the new SCA technique and maybe that can be useful?

      Regards Niklas

          Hi Niklas,

          Are you saying that the return buffer from the Tuxedo is an FML buffer that contains a string field holding the XML and you want to "cleanup" the string before passing it back to the client? If so, I believe you can do that with a data mapping plug-in. Documentation for SALT 10gR3 can be found at the [Tuxedo 10gR3 documentation |http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E13161_01/tuxedo/docs10gr3/index.html] page. Specifically the section you want to look at is here .

          I'm not sure how the SCA support in SALT 10gR3 would help with this problem.
