Hi group.

I use a hash to pass a group of arguments around. One of the args (the
'query' key in the sample below) is a string which holds XML... and
when I try to read the value of the 'query' key in my function I get an
error "not a valid input stream."

This works fine if I replace the XML string in the 'query' key with a
simple string, .. (The readXmlFile function IS tested & working, it
returns a 'to_s' on a REXML::Document...)

hshQuery = { 'queryType' => 'gfs', 'wmlType' => 'well', query =>
readXmlFile('filename.xml') }
requestObject =

class Request
    puts hshQuery['query']

regards, Henning
