Using CDATA to handle embedded XML

We ran into an issue when we were trying to pass embedded XML through one of our OSB processes.  The problem came up when we had duplicate namespaces between the embedded XML and the XML for our process.   OSB was combining namespace declarations and removing the namespace declaration from our embedded XML since it was already declared in the XML for our OSB process.

The solution was to wrap the embedded xml in a CDATA wrapper.  This is very easy to do in OSB by using the fn-bea:serialize function shown below.

Removing the  CDATA wrapper is also easy and can be done using the fn-bea:inlinedXML function.
