    Required encoding for Voyager API XSDs

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local, TotalCare



    What is the required encoding for Voyager API ("Appication Programming Interface") XSDs ("XML Schema Definition")?


    Typically the required encoding is UTF-8.  

    An example would be:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <patronList xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns="">

    Additional Information

    Incorrect encoding (for example, utf-16) can cause errors which are not logged in the vxws servrice and thus difficult to troubleshoot.

    Please note that Voyager Support has a limited ability to assist with the Voyager APIs.  We can help identify the APIs that might be useful to you, and provide basic troubleshooting aid.   Voyager-L and Developer Network  are useful resources for obtaining additional assistance.
