SAP CPI to S/4 HANA webservice call - Unexpected character 'j' error


Hi All,

I am getting below error when I am making an Webservice call to S/4 HANA (on-premise) system . The webservice calls were working fine till last Friday .

I had got an update saying that SAP will be supporting CPI on Apache Karaf runtime from the beginning of 2019 .

I am not sure whether this issue is due to Apache Karaf runtime .

Any suggestions or pointers regarding this please .

Error Details are as below . I verified my payload and everything seems to be fine(the same payload was working fine till last Thursday) . Same error is being thrown for different webservice calls I am making to S/4 HANA .

org.apache.cxf.binding.soap.SoapFault: Error reading XMLStreamReader: Unexpected character 'j' (code 106) in prolog; expected '<' at [row,col {unknown-source}]: [1,1], cause: com.ctc.wstx.exc.WstxUnexpectedCharException: Unexpected character 'j' (code 106) in prolog; expected '<' at [row,col {unknown-source}]: [1,1]
