XML encoding using udf java code

Hi Experts,

we are working on SAP PI version 7.0.

We are getting a SOAP response from 3rd party system.. as per below screen shot.

We need to read the data in field "DATA"and we have to send same data as request to ECC through proxy.

please suggest the java mapping code to read the XML file data which is present in the "DATA" field and parse it to target structure.
please let me know if any info required.
Thanks in advance.

    U can use XSLT mapping to convert xml string into XML structure and then map the required fields to the proxy response.

    In ur response mapping u can use xslt mapping followed by the graphical one (for mapping converted XML structure to the proxy response)

    • Hello,

      U need a little bit of adjustment in xslt , check below code

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

      <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:ns0="http://test" xmlns:xsl="">

      <xsl:template match="@*|node()">


      <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>



      <xsl:template match="/">


      <xsl:variable name="data">

      <xsl:value-of select="substring(//Data, 39)"/>

    • Hi,

      Sorry for the late response. Here is the new code:

      package ia_getcdata;



      import java.util.Map;

      import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder;

      import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory;

      import org.w3c.dom.CharacterData;

      import org.w3c.dom.Document;

      import org.w3c.dom.Node;

      import org.w3c.dom.NodeList;



      public class ExtractData implements StreamTransformation {




      public void setParameter(Map arg0) {


      public void execute(InputStream in, OutputStream out) throws StreamTransformationException {

      try {

      DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();

      DocumentBuilder builder = factory.newDocumentBuilder();

      Document doc = builder.parse(in);

      NodeList nLData = doc.getElementsByTagName("Data");

      Node nData = nLData.item(0);

      Node child = nData.getFirstChild();

      CharacterData cd = (CharacterData)child;

      String dataString = cd.getData();

      dataString = dataString.substring(dataString.indexOf("?>")+2);





      catch (Exception e) {





      Hope this helps,
