I was wondering if someone could tell me how to get Axis to ignore whitespace when deserializing an XML message into Java types. I am receiving an XML string which includes whitespace as part of the contents of an element whose type is an integer. When this element is deserialized Axis throws a NumberFormatException because of the presence of the whitespace (exception is thrown by the Integer constructor). Has anyone got any ideas on ways I might get around this issue - other than searching through the string I receive for elements whose type is integer and stripping any space for element content Cheers, Tom
