expat whitespace in CDATA sections

I am experiencing 2 problems with CDATA sections. These are:

1. Expat appears to be collapsing adjacent linefeeds into one inside CDATA
sections.
2. Expat (XML_CharacterD ataHandler) returns the wrong len value for CDATA
sections containing ']'.

I would be grateful of any help you can offer.

My XML application contains code like this:

<![CDATA[
namespace
{
int max=10;

unsigned char buffer[10];
]]>

My C++ character_data_ handler looks like this - note in particular the cout
diagnostic:

void character_data_ handler( const XML_Char* s, int len )
{
if ( m_element_data != "" )
{
m_element_data += "\n";
}

cout << "s=" << s << ", len=" << len << endl;
if ( len == 0 )
{
m_element_data += "\n";
}
else
{
m_element_data. append( s, len );
}
}

My problems are that character_data_ handler returns the following:

<![CDATA[
namespace
{
int max=10;
unsigned char buffer[10
];
]]>

As you can see line 5 is lost and line 6 is broken at the ']'.

The diagnostic output from character_data_ handler is:

s=namespace, len=9
s={, len=1
s= int max=10;, len=15
s= unsigned char buffer[10];, len=27
s=];, len=2

Best regards,

Chris.

The setup: a Sax parser in a servlet and a Java client (same machine) which uploads an XML document containing CDATA elements which hold base 64 encoded binary files. The servlet then SAX parses the client's data. If I comment out the parser call I can see that the transmition time of large data files is very low. My understanding is that a SAX parser should transmit the content of a CDATA string downstream without signiificant...

Hello, I got a weird problem and need your help and ideas... I´ve written an php application which imports data in XML format and writes this data to a MySQL database to have a faster access.

Out of curiosity, may a CDATA section appear within an attribute value with datatype CDATA? And if so, how about other attribute value datatypes which accept the XML markup characters? To me, the XML specification seems a little ambiguous on this, so I defer to the XML authorities. Refer to sections 2.4 and 2.7 (it all hinges on if CDATA attribute values are part of markup or not.) Thanks.

Hello, Just wondering if anyone could shed any light on this, it's probably me just being silly... I have a dataset that I've used to create an XmlDataDocument, in order to apply XSL. The XSL reformats the XML to another format (still XML, not HTML). This works fine, but whatever I do, I can't get the finally output section to have CDATA elements. I've added a cdata-section-elements tag into the xsl file, but it doesn't seem to have...

Hey everyone, this may be a stupid question, but I noticed the following and as I'm pretty new to using xml and python, I was wondering if I could get an explanation. Let's say I write a simple xml parser, for an xml file that just loads the content of each tag into a dict (the xml file doesn't have multiple hierarchies in it, it's flat other than the parent node) so we have <parent>
