      Description

      When submitting a SOAP request that contains a UTF BOM http://unicode.org/faq/utf_bom.html#22, the following fault string is returned: "Could not access envelope: Unable to create envelope from given source:"

      After removing the offending BOM, and not manipulating the XML in any other way, the message is is delivered to the defined Endpoint successfully.

      Per http://unicode.org/faq/utf_bom.html#29 , Spring-WS should be able to transparently ignore the BOM on UTF-8 files.

        Ok, thanks for the additional info. I will take a look at this for 1.5.4.

        I can reproduce this locally, using SAAJ 1.3. So whatever it is, they haven't solved it yet. I will ask the SAAJ mailing list about this, and probably write some workaround for Spring-WS.

        Note that as a workaround, you can use Axiom rather than SAAJ. Axiom works fine with UTF-8 BOMs.

        This is a known bug in SAAJ, see https://saaj.dev.java.net/servlets/ReadMsg?list=users&msgNo=89. SPring-WS now has a workaround for this.
