  • Thread-topic: Needed Binary Information as part of XML data.

Hi Friends,
   As part of a binary information sharing (you can assume a binary data
cache info) between applications, I have come across a problem that 0x0
is not a valid XML character to be set as an attribute. The following is
the requirement.

   - Have an InputStream - which gives a byte[4000].
   - This byte[] is converted as a String
   - Tried to set it as XML attribute.
I am using JDOM as of now. But I just wanted to get a better advice
before experimenting with all other options.
Anybody came across such a requirement to transfer a few binary data as
part of XML?
Thanks in Advance.
Binu K Idicula

Exception is as follows

domainObjects.Com^@" is not legal for a JDOM attribute: 0x0 is not a
legal XML character.
        at org.jdom.Attribute.setValue(Attribute.java:486)
        at org.jdom.Attribute.<init>(Attribute.java:229)
        at org.jdom.Attribute.<init>(Attribute.java:252)
