[RE-OPENED]SoapUI Pro changing response of xml document within xml document

Is there an preference I can set or some other way to have it so SoapUI Pro is not modifying the response when it is interpreting the XML from the raw data? 

We have an API whos response returns an xml document within an xml document.  It looks like SoapUI is attempting to decode that XML and trying to represent a document within a document, which results in non well-formed XML which it puts CDATA tags around. This non well-formed XML ends up looking like this:


   
     
         <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><SkillPort><BaseSite><WebsiteColors CurrentColor="#FFFFFF" DefaultColor="#FFFFFF" ModifiedByServer="vmhapi" ModifiedByUser="-1" ModifiedDate="2009-09-29 17:34:38.68" Name="COLOR_LOGIN_DIALOG_BUTTON_TEXT"/></BaseSite><AdvancedGroup Name="AGHapi" Orgcode="AGHapi"><WebsiteColors CurrentColor="#FFFFFF" DefaultColor="#FFFFFF" ModifiedByServer="vmhapi" ModifiedByUser="-1" ModifiedDate="2009-10-01 10:03:22.68" Name="COLOR_LOGIN_DIALOG_BUTTON_TEXT"/></AdvancedGroup></SkillPort>
     

   


The raw data that is coming back looks like this (and is well-formed):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><SkillPort><BaseSite><WebsiteColors CurrentColor="#FFFFFF" DefaultColor="#FFFFFF" ModifiedByServer="vmhapi" ModifiedByUser="-1" ModifiedDate="2009-09-29 17:34:38.68" Name="COLOR_LOGIN_DIALOG_BUTTON_TEXT"/></BaseSite><AdvancedGroup Name="AGHapi" Orgcode="AGHapi"><WebsiteColors CurrentColor="#FFFFFF" DefaultColor="#FFFFFF" ModifiedByServer="vmhapi" ModifiedByUser="-1" ModifiedDate="2009-10-01 10:03:22.68" Name="COLOR_LOGIN_DIALOG_BUTTON_TEXT"/></AdvancedGroup></SkillPort>

Thanks,

Hi Mary,

yes.. that is how it works.. (or should work), the target should contain a regular expression that will be matched against the name of the teststep..

hope this helps!
