Description

One of Christy's students entered an ampersnaf ('&') in the dataPackage name
field for a package and discovered that this created a problem. '&' is cinverted
to & by Morpho and submission to metacat works OK as do purely local
rearches on Morpho.

An error message about 'not having entity info following the &' occurs, however
when Metacat tries to build a resultsSet document from the package with the '&'
in the package name! This keeps a user from doing any searches for their own
docs on metacat!

History

#1 Updated by Jing Tao over 16 years ago

In extended query, the value for return fields need to be normalized(for
example, '&' should be replaced by "&". So the value can be parsed by SAX
parser. Now it works fine.
