We are sending some data to other system in an xml format. I have a filed which is a freeform text type. I have some special symbols in that filed (e.g. &, @, $, % etc). while using generate xml, these symbols are being converted.( eg & is converted to &). But I have to send only &. Could anyone tell me how we can do that.
Duh! If the software at the other end is correct then all they will see at the other end is '&' because the software there will have converted it back. But you can find this out during your testing and take the necessary steps to convert the '&' back to '&' before sending the data.
