Invalid char #0x16 when attempting to connect EP to BW via XMLA


I'm working on BI SDK. Trying to retrieve data from BW 3.5 system in portal EP7.0 .

I tried following the sample code in BW SDK Docs "How To… Use the BI Java SDK in a Portal iView". The sample code to return the schemas works fine, but when I modify the code to use an MDX query, I get this exception: Invalid char \#0x16(:main:, row:111, col:3)

The MDX query works fine (tested in the SAP GUI using transaction MDXTEST), so I'm not sure what the problem is. I would really like to trace the XML being sent from the portal to BW, and to trace the XML being sent from the BW back to portal.

If anyone has any ideas on this, I would greatly appreciate it.
